Yes! Somewhere in my childhood I determined that I was responsible for other people’s happiness. What a burden to bear! And how selfish and foolish to think I could provide happiness for others. It’s taken a long time to realize that trying to keep others happy/comfortable all the time is a disservice to them and to myself.
