The Hollow Man

“What if my happiness lies in another’s happiness?” On being asked this question I was taken aback for a second.
If your happiness is only someone else being happy, then what exactly is your own desire: their desires?
What is a person if not a reflection of his desires* and his life if not a strive towards them?
And if his desires are not his own, how is his strive his? How is his life his? How is he his?
*Every person has their own ideology, characteristics, preferences, thoughts. These, coupled with happiness form one’s desires, one’s wants. Doesn’t that make man a reflection of his own desires?
