I found a week ago a video on youtube that a guy explained that most of the people aren't happy but the problem wasn't about something exterior like need of money, food, love. They basically just felt unhappy because they weren't aware and some people even suicide because of that feeling of unhappiness when they actually are happy. What touched me more about that video is that after thinking about it i felt way better and alot happier because i started thinking "I have money, I have love, I have a good place to live" so became aware in that moment and i think more people need to know this because it's something so simple and it ruins so many lives, it destroys familys so people think about this and tell me what you think and sorry for my bad english in some sentence :)

Wow, I am glad that you find your enlightenment from this youtube video. Indeed, some people just won't realize how lucky they are, while they are keep on complaining. For myself, I might be one of the lucky person too, and I just don't know how to appreciate it, and I still feel that I don't have anything at all. Not even one true love from a female companion.

I think to make yourself happy we need to find the pursuit of happiness in our lives, Happiness doesn't last forever it has obvious reason of sadness, problems and distractions in our life. But in order to be happy we should know the value of our life. It happens at times we hate living in this world but such things are parcels of live and we need to accept it happily. As you have mentioned in the discussion that you are happy with what you are, it is at this stage we realize that when things approach to people they know the real value. Have you ever noticed such things before the answer to that would be obviously no. A few days back I watched a movie known as THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS its a great real life story and iam sure that anyone who watches the movie will be in tears towards the end. The movie has many aspects that are motivational and in that movie the main actor explains show how happiness can be found in life. So concluding on the topic I guess the reason for being happy and they don't know is the realization of their worthiness in life.

I think that a lot of people re unhappy not because of the things that they don't have, they are unhappy because they feel as if they have failed in some way. It is more of a self-esteem issue than anything else. These people have a hard time being happy with the simple things in life because they are always struggling in life; whether it be financially, romantically, or just general everyday struggling. They see other people who seem to have it all, and they long to be in their shoes, yet they have no idea what sort of problems those other people have, and they don't know what to do to get there themselves. The truth of it is that if these people would just sit back and look at what they do have, and see that there are other people that are wors off them they are, they really would feel better and be happier.

Yes, you are right. People didn't know how to make themselves happy. People have loosen their sense of happiness. Unhappiness ruins ourselves, what they got haven't enough for them. They are greedy and never satisfied with their achievement. Thank You.

That is very interesting I think about this from time to time. I think a lot of peoples happiness has to do with what they are exposed to. Some people are unhappy because they dont have what the next person has. If someone was in the forest and used to being there and got a nice hot meal they would be happy. But it might not be the same value to someone in the city so they wont be as happy because of their perspective on things thats what they get all the time. I think its best to appreciate what you have and dont focus too much on others.

Your english ain't bad at all. I totally agree with you.Most people concentrate on what they don't have and think about what they don't have most of the time instead of seeing all of the things that they have and appreciate all of the good little things that happen to them everyday. I try to appreciate everything I have and feel happy every single day. Happy Mylotting! :)
