Those who seem happy may actually have pain in their hearts;
those who often have a smile on their face may be harboring silent tears.
Those who come across as enjoying life may not always have inner feelings to reflect their presentation.
A person’s happiness is something that they alone can understand.
Therefore, do not worry yourself about what others say;
live life according to how you are comfortable.
Happiness is like drinking;
one knows the temperature of the water that is best suited to oneself.
Your happiness is not dependent on what others think;
it is based on how you feel.
Jia Cuo Rinpoche
