Step 3.  Learn to be genuinely happy for the good things that happen to and for others. There’s a verse in the Bible (Romans 12:15) that directs believers to “mourn with those that mourn, rejoice with those that rejoice”. I’ve received calls into the night from friends and family members that announce “he asked me to marry him, and I said YES!”, “i asked her to marry me, and she said YES!”, “we’re having a BABY!”, “I got the job!” and “we wanted you to be the first to know…”. Do I look forward to the day that I can be the one calling others with my big news? YES, but until that day comes (and even afterwards), I’ll be a cheerleader to everyone I meet. You’re happiness for others is a seed that will return a harvest to you in your time of need.

I'm so happy for you, I can't stop cheering!
