You cannot depend on external factors to determine your happiness and set your own expectations for this life that you’re leading — you have to do that for yourself.

You have to decide what makes you happy — and you have everything you need within you to find the joy that you seek.

It’s up to you to set expectations for yourself — you cannot expect others to hold you to a higher standard if you don’t hold that same standard for yourself.
