If you want happiness to prevail in your entire life, stop forthwith thinking of what the others say or think about you.
Do not allow malicious people to make you mad sad bad.
Let them tell whatever they want. You have no way of halting or locking their mouths.Let the dogs barks but moon is not ruffled.
Do not allow either nice people to make you happy.
Know that happiness is within and endeavor to be happy without the support of outsiders.
Your thoughts and emotions are powerless until you cling to them orpick them up.
You have to create your own happiness and joy and let go the myriads of emotions arise in your mind obstructing your innate nature of happiness.
