Came back from playing basketball he told me he was very upset. I dont know the reason, neither could he give me any reason, it is just a feeling. He said that he did not have goals/target in his life (actually neither do i have) he said he had had bad luck all these years. I was just listening to him and trying to make him happy. I did not know he could also feel upset. To me he seems to be always happy. All of us want to be happy all the time but being happy is not an easy thing!

Dear friend, I feel as long as human wants remains and until those wants are satisfied happiness in that individual reflects on that want which is not yet fulfilled as that individual wished. May be it always things goes according to one's wish happiness may be much in that person. But if one have to know happiness he should had tasted the other side sadness. I feel it is not possible for a normal person to be happy always. Anyhow have a happy day....

Sometimes, it hard to be happy. If you'll look at it in a brighter side, it's not really hard. As long as you'll just be contented of what you have. :) Happy mylotting popular girl! :)

When you are looking for happy, sure you hard to get happy. Happy is no need to find. Just do what you want , do something you are interest. Set the goals and target sure is very important, you must try your best to achieve them , but don't too mind or expect about the result. Important thing is you are do your best. And you must have positive thinking, one situation you can see by several directional. Say "bad luck all these years", this is one example of negative thinking, negative thinking is always kill our happiness.

We all feel sad at some point in our life but its a matter of how fast we get over things and how we think about things. As days go by the feeling of sadness goes eventually. But if we can make are our mind and move on in less time we can be happy longer.If you think about the things we have been upset about you will realize none of them are bothering us anymore or as much as it did at the time. Being happy or sad is in our mind so if we control our mind we can control our happiness. It is ok to feel sad for a moment and then move on with your life

Hi there Popular Girl! You're right. It's not easy to be happy. With lots of things happening around us, we feel that we can just reach out and find happiness with all of the possibilities around us but usually, our hands come back empty bringing disappointments and frustrations in our lives. I think the best thing to do is to just be there for him whenever he needs you and somehow, things will work themselves out. You just got to let time work and expose him to real happiness; love, friendship and hope.

I believe that happiness is not what you find in a thing, but its what you find in yourself and with GOD; what we crave for is not something we can find here on earth, it is something spiritual; therefore we will never be truly happy, we might find content for a little while, regardless if its something we just bought or experienced, it will never last, and we crave for something more, bigger and better, so again, i believe true happiness resides in yourself, your relationships and just being content with who we are and what we have, and what we don't have.

Yep being happy isn't an easy thing. We always look around for reasons to be happy but it's sad that we don't always find a reason to even smile. I have this goal in my life but it seems to be really far away. I have no idea when I'll be reaching it or even how I will. Anyway I promise on working hard for a better future. I hope I reach the goals I desire. I will give it my all.

It's hard-wired in all of us to desire to know our purpose in life. It's a major factor for people to keep going despite going through tough times. Everyone goes through tough times in varying degrees: hardship is inescapable this side of Heaven. Your friend does not have "bad luck." He is just living Real Life. How about reading any of these: Bruce Wilkinson's The Dream Giver, as well as Prayer of Jabez Kerry and Chris Shook's One Month to Live And as for understanding the purpose of hardship, these books will help: The Upside of Adversity by Os Hillman Secrets of the Vine by Bruce Wilkinson Good luck to you and your friend! Hope he finds his purpose soon. :)

When God blessed human beings with all his blessings, he hid one of his blessings, which is called "peace".....because he was afraid that if humans will have peace of mind and heart, then they will not remember God, who gave them all these blessings....and he was right....we men are so selfish, that we forget those who do good for us. And since human beings are not blessed with peace , they are always unhappy in one way or other, and that forces them to bow before God and say some prayers from time to time.......so dear friend, it is not easy to be happy, because, you just cannot be completely happy as that will take you far from God, which is not good in a way....so lets by happy that we are not completely happy as that makes us dearer to God.

"Happiness is not an easy thing, it's very hard to find new and impossible to find elsewhere." So when we are looking for the happy, should not go beyond ourselves. It's something that comes from within and can not be given, only conditional. We are so demanding with ourselves, so selfish and seeking more that that small portion of happiness that is found in us anonymity. Should accept the simplicity of things and not constantly try to compare ourselves to others. The only fact that we are unique should make us happy. There are so many things that may make us happy but we would have to select those that our happiness in a good condition, which give it a boost. Acceptance of self is also important. Everything in life is built, as well as happiness. We find in ourselves but we need to build continuu.fiindca is so fragile, you must protect continuously. Each individual, we worked for it and we will work differently for each that are different.
