Happiness for ourselves is very much dependent upon the happiness of others. We need to respect and pay attention to the well-being of others if we want to have happiness ourselves. If we don’t think about this, but only want to have parties and go to movies, then our minds are very sensitive. One small change in the environment and we’re unhappy; another small change and then we’re happy again. Your mind becomes very unstable.
