Happiness is contagious
Happiness is thankfully not a disease we have to treat. But because of that, it is not a well-studied emotion. Sadly there are those who want to shut down your happiness! I am sure we have all experienced the discomfort of that truth at one time or another.
Invest some time in yourself and cultivate joy, despite what anyone else thinks. Then share it! Unlike the flu, or the winter blues, happiness is a gift you can actually enjoy.
