Making Others Happy - Simar Kaur
The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are but how happy others can be because of you. Every time we make someone happy, an indescribable feeling enters our body. It makes your day better, and at night you can go to sleep feeling better about yourself. Life is meaningless without compassion, love, empathy, and sympathy. It seems to be even more pointless if one is not happy. It is human nature to discover more and more ways to be more comfortable and more content with life. Many people find contentment and satisfaction by making others happy, and it works like a charm. The quest for happiness is not proportional to the pursuit of money, fame, or success. It's a quest present in the heart. If we follow our hearts, we will be happy with ourselves at the end of the day.
How can we be happy? There isn't one definite answer to that question. But there is a way, that is to make others happy. In his book 'Is your child ready to face the world', Dr Anupam Sibal names two famous personalities who followed their heart and made the world happier. Walt Disney made beautifully animated stories. His legacy continues till now. Many people find happiness in watching his stories and visiting 'Disneyland' each year. His creation Mickey Mouse makes millions of children laugh and smile. The second person Dr Sibal named was Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin made millions of people happy without even uttering a single word. The way he mended pain to be humour made him distinct from many others. His creativity is genuinely commendable.
One more person who made millions happy was a man named 'Jaspal Bhatti'. He continues to bring a smile to people's faces even today, after almost 9 years of his passing away. He is known for his satirical take on the common man's problems. Watching his episodes has been a bonding activity for my father and me. His humorous shows and witty acting have never failed to make us happy.
Making others happy is what can help us attain joy and happiness. It makes us more comfortable than anything else. If we even make a little effort and make someone happy every day, we will be happier with ourselves. That can make all the difference in the world.
