This is not officially a part of Breakthrough Boot Camp, but you might find yourself dealing with this situation when you've made changes in your life for the better: sometimes being happy makes you unpopular.
It's insane that I even felt the need to write about this topic, but there are certain people in life that will try to make you feel bad about your happiness. They don't want you to be happy, and as a result, sometimes we're uncomfortable expressing just how happy we are. Do you know why?
Because happiness is a form of power: it's a power that the unhappy do not possess, and some of us are really uncomfortable wielding that power.
"How dare you. How dare you pursue your passions, and especially how dare you make money off them. How dare you feel good about yourself. How dare you make the right decisions for your life, and not have to wallow in your own self-misery."
My point is that I am a firm believer that generally, we create our own life. It's not that some people are "just lucky" - good things come to people who make them happen, and make smart decisions.
If you are happy with your life - if you have created amazing things; built a cozy home; birthed beautiful children; had incredible experiences; or just love what you do for a living - don't hide it. Don't apologize for it. Don't allow others to make themselves feel better by leaving you powerless.
Instead, just glow. Smile.
Radiate your happiness. It's okay to be happy.
