If you'll be given just one thing that you needed in your life and will makes you happy, what would it be? Anything that you always dream to have and will makes your life complete.

"contentment" that is the thing I ever wanted. Why? simply because I want to feel happiness and love.

Yeah that's correct, but just wonder over your past contentment, unless you have it, it remains as a wish but once after acquiring it, it moves to the next higher need in the hierarchy of need cycle. Human is a wanting being! ~cheerio~

I think lovelysassygirl is right contentment. Contentment of what you have. Commitment to your love ones & kids.

Yeah but your contentment never ends, every time you finish the current one, you get another one to fulfill. ~cheerio~

I would like to have an infinite capacity of taking pain because both 'peace' and 'contentment' is influenced by external events if not driven by meditation and spirituality.

see in this world of finite resources, nothing is there what you get of the value of infinite, but still a good argumentative style. A better thing which really acts as a major solution is a very good social relationship, someone being your reason to live, a relation with highest level of mutual understanding, with no absolute fights and a long healthy relationship! ~cheerio~

Whatever you stated is the by-product of my aforesaid statements.For argument,JESUS has an infinite capacity of taking pain,which means He could forgive anybody and there comes the highest level of understanding with no fights.There is always a reason to live for everybody,and probably it's(which you have mentioned by 'someone') the same for everybody including you.

I agree with you yousjannat, being able to bear the pain, being hopeful and having faith will makes us able to live our life with peace and happiness. To gain faith we need to believe in supernatural thing and that's GOd. Having faith in Jesus Christ will gives us strength and courage to keep on living and moving and loving our life. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Perfectly, Human is a wanting being, its needs never actually get fulfilled. One after another it keeps on coming, according to the great philosopher Maslow who in his Need Hierarchy Theory has explained every thing. What I also believe, is that a healthy social relationship can really help us in a major way and Love is just the perfect one. ~cheerio~

Yeah, love is still the best and definitely will makes our life complete. We can have love though by loving others and not just waiting for love to comes into our life, even not romantic love. Anyway, wish you will have them all one day. Thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Well I have no idea, because still I have not become a parent, but yeah I can guess it from my parents feelings. You are very good to have such superb feelings, one thing I want to advice you (even if I am younger than you), whenever your children asks you something, especially stressing you (possibly a possible one) never immediately turn it down, rather take some time to discuss it with sweetness and understanding way and try to make them understand the practicality of the thing. Sorry for going off topic, but I wanted to tell you this because I have suffered a lot for my parents not being understanding( I am not saying against them, but is trying to relate my past) for you to be better! ~cheerio~

Yeah, every parents ultimate dream and happiness is to see their children happy and successful in their chosen career. That's what my parents often told us especially my mom, way back then, and my siblings and I did try our best to finish our studies and yeah with God's help and my parents love we are living in a quite comfortable way and we're happy and grateful for my parents love and support and of course Jesus Christ love and mercy. ANyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Continuous peace of mind,it should be continuous! But it never is, uh... why? See what does peace mean, its a relative term, it relates to noise made by us, we call silence(which is again a relative term) because there is noise and disturbance. So peace of mind will only happen if and only if there is some amount of noise/disturbance. The energy in the universe is constant, there is no question of positive energy without a negative energy associated with it. So what I think is that, we should engage ourselves in doing whatever we enjoy! Simple but give it a serious thought, who knows you might be enlightened. ~cheerio~

Yeah, we all want peace of mind, because when there is peace there is happiness. A friend of mine told me a story of man who he met while traveling abroad. A man who is 70 years old, full of life, goodness, simplicity and love. He ask what's he's secret for having a joyful life and he said, "Don't let anything or anyone destroy your peace. Keep your peace. If you get angry, you lose your peace. If you worry you lose your peace and if you get upset, you've been set up." We can have peace as long we hold for it, as long as we keep and we can have it forever while we live in this troubled world, it's not impossible. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Hey careguarden! That is a really difficult question! I am not really sure what I would want beside my health! I guess, at this point I would want to work things out with my boyfriend and have decide to love me and stay by my side, but that really isn't what he wants to do! I would like it to be, but even though we are trying to work things out, I'm not really sure we can! But, that would be what I would want besides my good health!
