Did you ever complain about something you thought was going to be a great experience but then it turned out to be terribly disappointing?
If you happened to complain to my mother about such a thing, then she would probably tell you that you have no one to blame but yourself because everyone knows that you have to emotionally invest to get a joyous return. Or put another way, you get out of it what you put into it.
Which is also another way of saying that you can’t sit on your butt and wait for stuff to come to you; you need to make the effort and go out there and take a chance and make some stuff happen.
Maybe it won’t work the first time or the second time. But you have to keep trying!

Happiness is not something that’s ready made.
It comes from your own actions
