“Don’t ever feel bad for making a decision about your own life that upsets other people. You are not responsible for their happiness. You’re responsible for your own happiness. Anyone who wants you to live in misery for their happiness should not be in your life anyway.”
– Isaiah Hankel
It’s not your job to make others happy and it’s not their job to make you happy. Your happiness is your job and their happiness is their job. You can find happiness on your own, through the power of your focus and so can they. Whenever you feel ready, you can choose to focus on topics which give you pain in a way which makes it easier for you to feel relief and so can others. This is true freedom.
