"Happy People Make People Happy -- But You Can't MAKE Someone Happy."
Posted Oct 25 2010 6:09am
For the past few weeks, I've been thinking and writing a lot about how people of pronounced positivity and people of pronounced negativity affect each other. (a/k/a Tiggers vs. Eeyores .) These two groups often annoy and drain each other (and themselves) in their efforts to make conversions to their own ways of thinking.
I summed up the present line of argument in this way
Happy people make people happy -- but you can't make someone happy.
What do you think?
And now...no more on this topic for a while.
On another note -- thanks so much for all the kind words of congratulations about the Kristin Davis/NBC/Kristin Newman television deal ! I appreciate that so much.
