The most successful people in life recognize this:

"The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you." ~Neil DeGrasse Tyson

It is nice to see there are others on the same page.

I too have realized that I make/generate my own (attitute toward the rest of the world around me) happiness in life [or the opposite]
It is not what the world/life is doing to me, but how I see/feel it from my own perspective...

Sticks and stones are rare and words only hurt if you take them that way (as hurtful).
