Can someone who's alone in life be happy?

I am always seeing people live a very distinct life from the others... I see that someone chooses to be alone... chooses to take care of their nephews or nieces instead of having their own child... what do you think about them? Technically they are alone.. no family of their own, no children of their own... and no husband to grow old with... What do you say? Will they be happy having a life like this? Do you think they still think of what has happened to their life and why they chose not to have their own family? I wonder... If they sometimes feel that they could be happier, at least if they did not choose to be alone in their life...? What do you think?

I absolutely think you can be alone and happy. I know people who are extremely depressed and they jump from relationship to relationship to fill a certain void that they do not know how to fill themselves...Which is very unhealthy. However, some people can be on their own, independent, and still be happy when they surround themselves with family and their own hobbies. If someone cannot be happy alone, then they are not ready to be in a relationship.

I think we are all a product of our own choices. It is very possible for someone to be happy with their live's choices. Actually, a lot of times we tend to think that people who do anything different than the status quo isn't happy, but that is not true!

Hi chiyosan, Yes, I think there are some people who can be happy living alone. Although I like solitude sometimes,being alone all the time would not be the life for me. I can only speak for myself and I guess only a person who enjoys living alone could really answer your question. Blessings.

I think they could be happy being alone.. I know I would not be happy if i had decided not to have kids. I love my kids.. But I understand that there are people who don't want to or can't have kids and they are happy.

Happiness is what you bring to your life. You can be alone and still be happy. Some people need the solitude more to enjoy their own happiness.

hmm in really there's no one can be happy if they're live alone,it's my thinking because for me if you dont have anyone to share or whatever you will be really painful because you must receieve all the thing that you dont want to alone,and do anything alone ,altough that you're really need someone help but if you're alone there's wont be a happier in there,in every situation there's must be a happy condition that can make you laugh at least,

the life is becoming more modern, people are trending independent in their life. they find happiness from activities in modern society. so, they choose the single life to do what they want.Will they be happy having a life like this. As for me, they won't be happy. sometimes the life is very simple, just clear things. after a hard work day, You come back home and the happiness is lived in the love and care of your family. the happiness is when you are ill, you are under your wife's/your husband's/ your children' care. family is as peace and safe landing for each of us.

i personally think NO but i heard from someone that it's possible. if the person prefers to be alone and is happy about it then probably YES. to be honest i havent seen one.

I think one person happy or not mainly depend on self feeling others may tell me how to get happy and what is happy, real happy or not only myself can realize, now I am learning to enjoy myself let myself get I really want, at the past time I think my happy can be reflect on others or friends, may be they think I am happy my inside not happy though, but in front of my friend I must try to show I am happy now. a lot of people may be not happy but try them best to make friends feel them happy, why to pretend?

I believe that someone can be happy in life even though he's alone as long as he feels contentment. I think that a person's happiness should not be dependent on another person or a thing, because he can never tell when that person or object of his happiness will be there for the rest of his life. What if it doesn't? Would that mean the end of his happiness, too?
