Toxic relationships must also be eliminated as well as work that is not satisfying. or rewarding. These three areas, addictions, social relationships and work are where we spend a good part of our waking hours. It is only be assessing these areas that we can decide what makes us happy. This entails a thorough search within us in regards to how we can achieve happiness. For many of us it requires us to think back to our childhood in order for us to rediscover what makes us happy.
Life is a journey. May your life be as rewarding to you as it has been for the author of this book.
