Why is it that when something good happens in peoples live they sometimes feel that they have to down play their happiness or their excitement as it may make others feel uncomfortable and sad and as a result prevents them from being themselves?
Gloaters are not my kind of people and there is a difference between those who like to rub their success in people faces and those that humbly express with happiness and excitement the good things in their life. But when good things happen in your life why should you ever have to feel that you cannot talk about it of express it to those around you who you hold nearest and dearest?
Sometimes when good things happen to us which can be anything from a promotion at work, love, marriage or even children it can also signify change, not only for those of us that it’s directly happening to, but also to the people around us who we have close relationships with. Unfortunately some people do not deal with change as well as other and can cause a negative effect on your happiness… but only if you let it. If this has ever happened to you, is happening to you or may happen to you, remember this, you are entitled to your happiness and success, you were not put on this earth to solely to please others and never allow others to make you feel like you are not entitled to feel or be happy! If there are people in your life who make you feel this way, no matter how much you despise confrontation tell them how you feel and that it’s not on! If they simply cannot understand at the time or thereafter, leave them to it and go and enjoy your happiness and if this person genuinely cares about you and wants what’s best for you, eventually they’ll come around, and if not, what’s one less person in your life who won’t support you through the good times as well as the bad.
