What is Happiness? Can it Be Defined?

 

Happiness is one of the most commonly used words.

If I win a lottery, I become happy. As I spend all the money, I become unhappy again. When you call me a good person, I feel happy, and when you curse me, I feel very miserable.  Outside forces and events sometimes can control our emotions.

Let us find out what is not happiness. Low self-esteem, feelings of despondency, sadness, guilt, helplessness, frustration, low interest, uncertainty, and all such negative emotions are not happy emotions. They rather make us unhappy. Now let us talk of what is happiness? Feeling good, cheerful outlook, positive thoughts, winning attitudes, satisfied living, enjoyment, and all such emotions that make us feel good are happy feelings

Is happiness the same for all of us? not at all each one of us has his/her own happiness.

Some of us are happy when we get a large amount of money, some when they can do a lot of creative work, some when they can make others feel good and so on. All of us have a unique set of values and desires. We ourselves many times do not know about them. It becomes difficult therefore to know how to keep others happy and this ignorance causes most of the interpersonal problems. But these differences in our emotional reactions make us human beings; otherwise, we are no different than animals.
