Everybody has his or her own definition of what happiness is, but no matter what your definition may be, you should be able to stay happy with or without other people. No matter the challenges, problems and horrible moments, you should keep in mind that at the end of the day only your happiness truly matters more than everything else.

Whether you are in a relationship, have a family or in general have a busy work schedule, you should still be able to create time to do what makes you happy in the midst of all the setbacks. Below are three ways to stay happy even when you are alone 

  1. Practice self-love: when you love something or someone, you always do everything possible to keep that thing or that person safe and happy. Loving yourself will help you stay happy because you will know deep within you that you do not need human validation in order to be happy.
  2. Find what motivates you: when you have your daily motivation and you make sure that you stick to it, it helps you overcome your fears and make yourself very happy since you will be fill with self-satisfaction.
  3. Do things you love: if you enjoy watching the stars at night, try no matter how busy you are to take time off once in a while to do just that. Stop thinking too much of what will happen if you are not there because life is very short and we have just one chance to live it so do the things that you like and stop worrying about everything and everybody but yourself.
