I do believe that happiness is a state of mind. I also believe that our level of happiness is influenced by those around us as well. If we are surrounded by pessimists, they may make such an annoying comment such as, " There is nothing happy about."
I find it difficult to be happy unless I have someone in my love life. Without someone there, the rest of my life seems like a pointless waste of time, I have no motivation to do anything (e.g. studying, exercise etc) and I often feel worthless. No matter what I do, I can't seem to shake that mindset for more than a few weeks before it hits me again. :-/
But I should be able to find some satisfaction and happiness in other areas of my life, even if I don't have anyone to love right at that moment. But it seems love is essential for happiness in every other area of my life, not just emotionally.
sometimes the hard way is the easy way if one can look ahead a bit further
Isn't that the truth. Happiness is about the easiest thing to accomplish.
if everyone was happy all the time,by using the simple solutions given,there would be no pain in the world. this would be unnatural,as it is just as natural to feel depression or pain or sadness as it is to experience happiness. I think some people are born with hearts of gold,some are just broken.
life is not always butterflies and rainbows,but the choices we make can help us deal with what is going on in our lives. IMO
