Everybody deserves to live a happy life but this task sometimes seems to be impossible when we are burdened with the rocks life throws at us. Making ourselves happy and stress-free isn’t an easy job when the sun doesn’t shine on us. We always want someone to be there for us to make us feel comfortable, to make us love ourselves, to make the life worthy again.
Since we want others to bring joy in our life when we face hurdles, we should feel the same and try to become the reason for the smile on other’s faces. Though it sounds challenging to bring the smile for other people, but if you are on the right track, you will come to know that it is not at all challenging.

Anonymous Note of Appreciation
There are days when we all feel that we are not worthy of anything because we do not get appreciated for our efforts. It is typical human nature that when we don’t feel recognized for our efforts, we feel unworthy and that our efforts are compromised. When you know someone who is dealing with this issue, you can anonymously leave a note of appreciation now and then. You can either leave it on their work desk or maybe on the windshield of their car. Make sure you remember to change the handwritings and words for different notes so that they feel that they are being appreciated by different people and not that only one person in the world care enough about them to acknowledge their struggles. When they will start realizing that there are people out there who think that their efforts are not worthless, they will start to feel better and you will be the reason behind their joy.
Lend an Ear
There are many people out there who are living in a world of isolation. They don’t have friend or family or anyone to share their problems and feelings with. Giving them your time and lending them an ear might sound like a very small deed, but it will surely bring significant impacts on someone else’s life. Just take out some time and listen to their problems and stories, lift the burden off their chest, make them think that they are not alone, tell them they are cared for.
You can also try helping them if possible, and if you think that you will be able to manage to bring change for them or to solve their problems to some extent, just follow your instincts and go for it. When they are through this, you can bring a small curve of a smile on their face and the moment would be priceless because it will make you happy too.
