“It’s so hard to make teenagers happy. Every teen is different.”
“It’s so hard to know what women want. Every woman is different.”
Okay, stop. Just, please, stop. Yes, we’re all uniquely and wonderfully different. But if you have trouble making whomever happy (or rather facilitate their happiness, as only you can make yourself happy), well, maybe the problem is you.
Maybe the bar is just super low. But you know what makes teenagers happy? Listening to them. Making them feel like you respect them. Not always giving them everything they want, but allowing them to feel like they have a voice. Uh, you know, listening to them. Making time for them. Not screaming at them and hitting them.
You know, the basic stuff.
And, oh, women? We want the same things, funnily enough. And, men…and…well…you get the idea, I hope.
