Why You Should Invest in the “Right” Relationships to Experience More Happiness

Should Invest Right Relationships Experience Happiness

You can nurture your existing relationships by spending quality time with others. This may include activities you both enjoy. Ask yourself:

“What hobbies do my friends enjoy?”

“What interests does this person have?”

To eliminate any doubt, you can always ask the other person.

By engaging in events that they enjoy (hopefully you do too), you will further develop those relationships.

Closing Thoughts

My time is my most valuable asset. That’s because once I spend it, I will never get it back. Hence, I choose wisely what I do with my time and whom I spend my time with. No matter what I do, there’s always an opportunity cost associated with it.

The same goes for relationships. Instead of spending time with one person, I could be investing it in someone else. That’s why I only strengthen my relationships with those I like and trust.

As for romantic relationships, I would rather be by myself than to be with the wrong person, no matter how scary and lonely it may be. Deep down, I know what I want (and deserve). I will not settle for anything less. I’ve learned that not everyone will like me. But those who do, they love me! Everyone in my social circle has helped shape me into who I am today.

Ask yourself:

  • “Am I spending enough time with those who are most important to me?”
  • “Am I surrounding myself with people who are lifting me up?”
  • “Am I settling in my relationships?”

Stop focusing on those who don’t add value to you. Instead, concentrate on people who do. Others who truly like you will stay in your life.

It takes two whole people to make any relationship work. Both parties must contribute by investing time and effort. There’s no forcing it. If it doesn’t work out, it’s just a matter of compatibility. There’s no right or wrong. However, the people who genuinely care about you will dedicate time and energy.

Their actions always speak louder than their words. Believe in what they do, not what they say.

The truth is this:

You already have uplifting relationships worth investing.

Take a closer look at your current circle of influence. Those connections range from your parents to your former colleagues.

Invest in right relationships now, and watch your life explode with more happiness.
