if they say being happy is a choice, how can we choose to be happy when everything in our life says otherwise?

u can deal to be or not to be HAPPY. Its ur choice. Its not happiness when u r not feeling good at something. And when u want to be happy but evrything says otherwise, may be its a cue to be a little selfish. We need to be a little selfish, sometimes.

Of course it depends what has made you sad in the first place, but you can look at any situation as good or bad... Same as you can look at a person and only see their good or bad points. It all comes down to attitude and whether you are an optimistic type of person or negative person... If you look hard enough, even the sadest of feeling can have agood point to them, but it is often hard to see it that way till after the sadness has passed. As an example, when my dad was alive, he was a negative type of person, he was hard on us kids and everyone hated him... yes they were hard times and you would think you couldnt find happiness in times like that... But then when you really understood how he was raised, and the things he went through, and realised thats all he knew, then you accepted life for what it was. He has passed now, and I look back and think that even though it was hard, i would not have swapped those times for anything because they have taught me to be the person i am today... So always look for the good in any situation and try not to dwell on the negative... And remeber that even in hard times, if you smile, you will encourage others to as well... I hope this helps

RaiRaiRae we can find happoiness even when life is turning our own life upside down. for one thing if you face adversity growling and angry you will not get any where.but if you keep cheerful when life's bad you have more of a chance of getting out of your problems because your brain is freer to think of solutions to your problems.I know because my son lost his job, we were evictred and were homeless b ut we kept up our courage and worked throu gh it all and solved many problems. so now we are happyh as we want to be.
