I want to be a good, happy person. Where do I start?

Report as

Start with yourself. Decide upon what your values are. Choose actions that uphold those values. Then, as you enjoy becoming the person you strive to be, notice how others are also wonderful souls, striving to do their best.
I always keep in mind that no one is perfect. Not only do I forgive myself, I also embrace the "Oopsidoodle-doodles" of others. Can you imagine trying to live up to being friends with a "perfect" person? The pressure!!! I am grateful that others are as flawed as me.
Life is short. Life is fun. I'm Happy2BeHere. Hope you are 2!

Thoughtful, Happy. Great answer. I can only think of one thing to add: If Maggie had the good manners to thank you for being so helpful it would be a step in the right direction. Since that doesn't seem to be the case she's probably pushing it uphill.

Lol! Did you see the student trying to construct a sentence came to comments for a "thanks?" Turns out his/her mom sat down and came up with the same answer. I was so glad to see a parent help with homework!

Remove all the bad thoughts that come in mind. Instead of disliking someone, give them a chance and have a nice conversation. In a nutshell. I'm saying to be a smooth and social person. Make me, a person, love talking to you.

Pursue things that produce laughter in your life. A good diet and exercise also provide good health
Pursue strengthening your relationships with family and friends
Mostly take the time to know yourself and find things you are passionate about
Good luck

Surround yourself with positive people. They are contagious, their influence will be bound to rub off and on to you.

stop caring about what people think about you, be yourself and don't care about being judge.

Start with others. Surround yourself with positivism, and then spread your new found positivism to those who need in. Remember being a good person has nothing to do with perfection. I believe everyone has good in them. You just have to let it show.

Start doing things that makes you happy first of all, things that can make a impovement in your life.
Like working on something in your home or outside like working out or improve yourself.
You know when you have something to do then your worries and thoughts are less or you dont have time to think about them.
And when you find something you like to work on or do, then keep on doing it.
For thats something you can enjoy, and thats what it is all about.

First and foremost, you must be happy with yourself as a person! Set the bar for your moral conduct, treat others with dignity and respect, be compassionate, realize that life is not just about you, but also those that you come in contact with. Each day, be happy for what you have and do not feel sorry for yourself , use the past as a guide for the future, but do not try to re- live it ! Each day try to do some small act of kindness for another, you'll be pleased with how good you will feel about yourself ! Have a great day:)!

The Bible shows us the best possible way to be happy. Matthew 5:3: "Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need, since the Kingdom of the heavens belongs to them."

When you are conscious of your spiritual need, everything else will fall into place because that's the happiest you will become.
