Therefore, when you wake up early morning, wake up with a big smile on face and saying that you are the happiest person on this planet. However, there are times come when we really feel sad and this is because of many things that go around us. The best way to deal with this feeling and to bring happiness back to life is by sharing what you are feeling.

The empathy you receive from the person makes you feel better and you will again start smiling.
