Upsetting others

29

How much time do you spend worrying about things you might have said or done that might have upset others? Even though deep down inside you know that you are taking other people's interests or feelings into account?

Here's what I learned from a friend who does not spend any time on this fruitless worrying:
"Don’t ever feel bad for making a decision about your own life that upsets other people.
You are not responsible for their happiness.
You are responsible for your own happiness.
Anyone who wants you to live in misery for their happiness should not be in your life to begin with."

Have a superb weekend!
