Most of us know that we could find happiness in contentment. But what happens when we cannot seem to find that contentment? What would I do? What would you do?

As far as I am concerned happiness is not only contentment,but also spiritual peace. Personally i feel happy not only when I am loved but when I love and can help other people.So if I feel depressed, I start trying to finf people in need, not only material, but spiritual as well and making them happy is my best reward.So happiness is making others happy:)

thanks for responding Diana... You have a point there. In fact, I also believed that spiritual peace spells contentment because we find our happiness by giving/sharing it to other people. But if one cant find that peace from their core, they still probably cant find that happiness. People's contentment, I believe, may vary depending on what their interests are or what they want to do.

For me the way to happiness is only contentment and acceptance.With all that the life will be much easier and light.We can not be contented unless we didnt reach our goals or did not meet our expectances in life but there will be always acceptance in everything we do in life and we achieve in life.

Happiness is definitely contentment. If we can't find that contentment then we just go along searching for it, taking the steps to reach it. Happiness for me is not only being content, but knowing there are people that love me and that I love in return. Love is probably the definition of happiness. I am very unhappy when I feel alone.

Contentment is experienced only when u like to do what u want and when things go right and gets fulfilled. When u r not able to do what you want, and there is an obstacle,nothing is right and gets fulfilled. Analise ur obstacles and try to overcome it to get solved 50% .
