Be Happy with Yourself!

It has come to my attention of late that so many people are not happy unless they have a significant other on their listing for facebook. Now really, how important is this?
Seriously, so many people both young and old seem to think they have to have a boy/girlfriend. Why? They go along posting about how unhappy they are; how they need a date; how they wish someone would love them.
Here's a thought: Why not try loving yourself? It truly is an awesome feeling to look in the mirror and be happy with who you see looking back at you. To be happy knowing someone else is not sitting there waiting to make you happy. I'm sorry but the only person in the world who can truly give you happiness is you, and you alone. Someone else can add to your happiness, but they don't actually make you happy. Happiness comes from within yourself. It comes from knowing you have done what you wanted, needed, and was lead to do by someone higher than yourself. Happiness doesn't come from jewelry, gifts, or the number of people who pat you on the back. I have found the things that I've truly felt joy over, no one would have known if I didn't tell them.
Happiness can be seen when it's real. When someone is happy with themselves they actually glow. They radiate this joyful feeling that makes others want to be around them. They smile more, and more people smile at them. It's a miracle worker to be happy! When you're happy, the world looks brighter. When you're happy, even ordinary chores don't seem so bad. They seem like the things you do so you can keep doing the things that make you happy.
I say all this because of the vast number of teenage girls in particular that I have noticed of late who are desperate to find a boyfriend. The funny thing is that 2 minutes after posting a relationship update they often post they have a headache. Well, no wonder! That's what happens when you try to force a smile on your face about a relationship that should have never been to start with.
Be happy with you before asking someone to make you happy. That's an order only you can fill.
