now dig this-
a person's happiness is related to the happiness of their friends, their friends' friends, and their friends' friends' friends—that is, to people well beyond their social horizon. we found that happy people tend to be located in the center of their social networks and to be located in large clusters of other happy people. and we found that each additional happy friend increases a person's probability of being happy by about 9%.
- social networks and happiness, by nicholas a. christakis & james h. fowler
their studies generally say that it’s better to surround yourself with happy people.
happy people make you happier. so, if social networking sites only make you feel insecure, scared, threatened or miserable, then you should definitely quit. well, you can also opt to prune out the unhappy and depressing people around you. block them like crazy so they will not bother you anymore.
and oh, speaking of happiness, to provide myself some amount of happiness in the future, i put up a wishlist blog to list all of the things that i would like to receive as gifts on my birthdays to come. well, sending them on my birthday is optional. drop by the site anytime and spread the love.
you can click the wishlist tab on the upper right of this page just below the changing header images.
click the donate button on the right part of this page whenever you feel generous. cash, money order, checks, and actual goods are very much welcome and appreciated.
thank you in advance. \m/
