World around me is changed by action I take, one at a time, not by the number of opinions I have.
World inside me is changed by the choices I make.
Whether I want to be happy now, is a choice I can make. It does not require any authorization or approval from any one. No one need to appreciate me to be happy.
But on the flip side, if I define my happiness by the approvals, accolades and likes, I consciously make a choice to be unhappy. If I pursue them, my unconscious mind also become a spoiled kid.
The choice is up to us, every single minute.
