Happiness is someone else's misery?
    I see it on blogs, memes, and social network status updates. All this "my life is about me" and "I only care about my happiness". That's fine, really, I'm fine with that. But I notice a new level of self-centeredness far too often with people who subscribe to that philosophy. One that ensures happiness even if it means someone else gets sad or hurt. That's just plain WRONG in my book. Seek your happiness but not at the expense of others. Mutual respect, yeah?
