    Everyone always says to do what will make you

    happy. But I don't really know how to be happy. I guess to understand why I'm not happy I would first need to understand happiness. Obviously I get the denotation of the word happiness, but what is it. I struggle with understand what exactly causes happiness. And why is it so...
