Depression, anxiety, anger, revengeful, envious, jealousy, all these are emotions that we are sole responsible of creating. Why do we want to have all these? You may say, we are only human...Yes, you may be right but you can have a happier life without it IF you want to. So we are all responsible for our own happiness...agree?

well yes i do agree with you... , THIS IS THE LAW OF GOD...these are all just because of ourself, Hapiness comes from God for our good deeds, and if we do bad we are respobnsible for the circumstances ourselves,

[b]God has given us Humans and jinns a free will to chose whatever we like... but every other creation of God like angels , planets , stars, animals , everything else hasn't got a choice to make... they have to follow the orders of God the will of God , they don't have any choice except obeying God, which makes us HUMANS the mist superior creation of God among the others.... thats the reason God ordered the angels to bow down in front of ADAM(PBUH).... now it is upto us we have to chose right,,,, or wrong...

In the beginning, God wants us to be happy on earth, given us freewill to do as we want within God's perfect plan. But as humans, we have our weaknesses. We wanted more and thus we choose our own way, committing things that aren't supposed to be in God's plan.

Yes, i do agree with you. its all in our attitude. We can wake up on a gloomy rainy day and say "dang rain, now i cant go outside for my daily walk or 'now i cant go play ball" or we can be positive and say. "Oh cool rain, Now i can stay inside and play games on my computer today" or "now i can bake cookies with my kids' You have to be positive and adopt a pollyanna attitude about life. I admit I have been quite negative lately but I do know how to pull myself out of it when I want too.

This is so true. Attitude is key. You have to learn it. I had to learn to be happy.

Couldn't agree more. Good positive attitude is something everyone should try to do. It is hard but somehow it can be managed.

Yes of course I am... All difficulties in life come and go and I just carefully manage the situation. Of course I preferred to be happy that's why i choose to ignore all the bad and negative situation I have. And if I can't ignore it I just solve it in the best that I can.

I think if we are all become less sensitive, we could eliminate those negative influence with ease.

Good for you underdogtoo! These negative emotions are nothing but rubbish. If you are happy, stay that way. It is not only good for our health and mental but also good nourishment for our souls.

AGREE yes that is true, we are responsible in our own happiness. whatever emotions we are feeling right now we are responsible with that. we have to learn to keep our selves happy and we need to learn to appreciate little things around us. when people are always craving or want to have more on what they have right now, if they are not contented then they are not happy.... it is easy to be happy, count your blessing and take a good look around you.

why do people are always not satisfied with what they have? They always want to have more or better than other and that make them stressful if they couldn't achieve what they want. This also could bring to doing negative things for example cheating or doing bad to other people. If only people could be more positive in their attitude, anything is possible.

The cause of human happiness or human sufferings has always been man himself.Emotions play a major part in our state of mind.If you are happy,everything in the world seems alright.Being in a difficult situation when all happiness goes away from you,one should not panic or lose heart.Happiness and sorrow are two sides of a single coin,one just need to flip the coin when he is sad.Though it is difficult to smile when you are sad,but being with friends,family members make feel surrounded and a feeling of security is there.Just try to get away from the thing that bothers you.
