I believe that happiness starts with others. By this I mean that in order for you to be happy you have to make others happy. I think that this is one of the most important things/beliefs to me because everyday i have such a hard to believing in myself but then that one person that comes along that i can tell needs my help and once i see a smile on their face my world is all good again until that time later.
