Hi there Wulin! Each of us has her or his own perspective of what happiness really is. Others say that more often than not, we become happy and we value more the things that we don't have or that will be hard for us to attain. Something that is not readily available to us. For me, happiness is feeling contented and learning to accept that there are just things that are not meant for us. Happiness is what I feel now since my family is complete, safe and healthy. We have financial problems but that's minute compared to what we have. I hope that it will stay this way forever. I am realistic though and I know that that's just not possible that's why what I hope for is that no matter what difficulties we will be able to encounter, we will be able to get through it together as a family.

With regard the topic, different people have different opinions.Gernernal speaking,most people will be happy when somethings in their mind is going well.For example,if someone is very poor,suddenly he becomes rich or can get a chance to be rich,at this moment,he will feel very happy.So, in my opinion, happy will strike people when the things that they expect happen or occur.Tags

yes,i totally agree with you. sometime,we want to have a better life,so we try to find a high-paid job.but when got the job,we will notice that we are not happy at all,because there are too much stress,that made us can't breath. maybe,we will think that it is not necessary for us to sustain such a stress.but we will doubt our abilities in such a case.so usually,happy will strike people.

Happiness is sort of subjective I think. As you said many people feel that to be rich, beautiful, and/or healthy means happiness, and maybe for them it is. However I feel true happiness depends on our view of ourselves (not physically), what we accomplish, our capacity to give as well as receive, and finally how we treat others. But ultimately, the key is to know what would make you happy. Trust me it isn't as easy as it sounds. Many people go through life thinking one thing made them happy only to find out later, that it didn't make them happy at all, wasting a lot valuable of time.

thanks for your reply! i think it will be very very very sad when these ones who go through life thinking about one thing made them happy,but later they fell it didn't make them happy at all. so,we must prevent this kind of thing,and live a happy,meaningful life.
