Choose to be happy even if others are unhappy

Feeling Happy (When Others are Unhappy) Doesn’t Make You a Bad Person

When someone is unhappy, it’s a human tendency to align your emotional state with theirs. And when a situation is challenging or upsetting, you’re taught to sync your emotions with those suffering.
