Can our happiness benefit others covertly?

When we're glum, those around us feel it, and if they are inclined to glum, they quickly sink right into it.

When we're happy, our mood uplifts everyone close by. You know what it feels like to walk into a room where the energy is off, right?

"There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy. By being happy we sow anonymous benefits upon the world." Robert Louis Stevenson.

Okay that quote's probably a bit old, and I'm not owning it, it came directly from Sarah's essay for today. To be honest it sounds way too prescriptive for me and I've got red flags going off all over the place. That "duty" word scares me a bit, well, a lot.<
