Love and happiness go hand in hand. We need to feel loved and secure in order to be happy. We also need to love back or the balance is disturbed. Researchers showed that it is the quality, not the quantity of our relations that brings us on the path to happiness. Also married people tend to be happier than single ones. Happiness does not depend on our nationality, sex, age or possessions. Happiness is love related. True acts of love can lead to lasting happiness in our lives.
For many people establishing good and loving relations with others might be a problem. Though there are lots of books and magazine articles that pretend to sell you love and friendship recipes, the truth is that happiness has no universal recipe. Some tips might work for some people, some for others, some in one situation but not in another. Also, it is always good to remember that in a relationship implies two people. There just isn't such a thing as a one person relationship. Though happiness comes from within sometimes our happiness seems to depend on other people's love and acceptance. One thing to keep in mind is that it is most likely that being loved by somebody does have as much to do with you as it has to do with the other person. Finding our own happiness sources has to do only with our own person.
