They say happiness is stage of your mind. If you decide to remain happy for ever no body can make u unhappy. They also say unfulfilled expactations lead to unhappiness, so if you want to be happy do not expact anything from anybody. They also say if you are contented yuo will be happy. We know all tesethings we try to practice it, but till we become unhappy at times. Shall we discuss how we can stay happy for ever? What is that which makes us stay happy for ever? Your opinion please friends.

I struggled with this issue for much of my life. My thought was when I'm able to buy the house that I always dreamed of, I'll be happy. I got the house and found that there was still something lacking. I finally realized that happiness doesn't come with things. It comes from being at peace with yourself and being comfortable in your own skin. How do I stay happy? I appreciate the things that I already have. Every morning, I write a list of everything that I am grateful for. In my gratitude journal, I also keep a list of what I call "firsts." I document the first time that I've seen or done something this year. Sometimes it's something really exciting but more often than not it's something that just brings me joy like seeing the first bud for the year on my rosebush or looking out my front window and getting lost in the beauty of the flowers in my flower beds. A couple of years ago, I thought long and hard about what things in my life I was really passionate about. I discovered that there were 4 key things that I loved to do. Every day, I make sure to incorporate each of those four passions into my life. When you're happy, you project it and I've found that you attract more happiness into your life.

Sorry, Common Man, I can't agree that we should seek to be happy forever. Then again, maybe my version of things is being happy. You see, I'm glad for the bad times because they make me appreciate the good times that much more! We can stay happy by viewing whatever comes our way as part of life and accepting it for what it is, no matter what.

For me to happy is being contented with what I presently have & being able to fulfill my full responsibility to my kid give him good & comfortable life. Degree holder & have a promising future. Being able to eat 5 times a day with 3 complete meals. Most especially always ther for each other at times of trouble.

Hi, To be happy forever, one needs to first understand what makes one to be unhappy... To know what makes one unhappy, one needs to put oneself in others shoes in everyday life... Once one understands what makes others unhappy, one needs to practice things which makes one happy... When done and realized continuously, it leads one to be happy forever ;)
