Hello friends !! Everyone has different definition for happiness.For me happiness means to live life and to enjoy each moment with whatever you got.And yes i also believe that laugh out loud is a small step towards self happiness. Till now i as talking about being happy.So now lets talk about making others happy.I don't think making others laugh means they are happy.Laughter can be faked easily for many reasons.For making others happy we need to know many things about them like what are their likes and dislikes,how is the mood,there wishes and so on. Do you think cracking jokes and act like a joker make other people happy easily..I don't think so.... So lets take a minute to think that which one is more difficult to achieve Be Happy or Make Happy...I am sure your whole day will easily pass thinking like mine. But still i am without any conclusion..for me both are equally difficult.... Lets see..what you people have got.. So all the best and Happy thinking guyzz and galzz! Happy Mylotting :)

Hi bond, its sort of of making me think that being happy is making others happy at well....Have you not told something not necessary a joke but said something that was just to to funny and people laughed so hard and hearty that tears came to their eyes. How can one not feel good from that.... Making other happy really makes me so happy...My heart is so light when I know I have brought laughter to another...Normally one can tell if a laugh is real or not..Actually making myself happy give me great pleasure....

Hello Friend! Yes i agree that making people laughing hard is also a way to make others happy...But sometimes it is temporary happiness which lasts for few moments. But its really good to hear that you make people laugh so much that they cry.. Very good my friend...keep doing the good work... All the best in life ..Be happy and Make happy :)

Being happy yourself is a difficult concept to grasp. Some people albeit may have their low expectations, others on the other hand may have an invisible line that inevitably reaches to space and beyond. Personally I think making other people happy makes me happy. I guess it's just a plus on myself, but I'd rather not be the person who remains isolationist by reaching the most amount of money but realize he or she is still unhappy.

Yes bro ! I am just like u ! Better to happy ! I like to make others happy but they think i am stupid or physio ! he he ...Find ur happiness and life a good life pleasant to God. Make someone happy today! Smile. Help them carry something. Send a thank-you email. Call just to see how they’re doing. Pick them flowers. Cook them a nice meal. Tell a joke and laugh your butts off. Clean. Write a love letter to a loved one.Give them a cherished book. Bake cookies. Praise them publicly. Thank them for a job well done. Listen.Be there when they’re in need. Give a free hug. Spend time with them, having fun. Do errands or chores for them. Say I love you. Help them get ahead. Be proud of them. Babysit if they need it. House sit if they need it. Buy them movie tickets. Create a care package. Coffee. List the things you love about them. Secretly leave them thank you notes. Give a back rub when appropriate. Deliver a nice lunch to them when they’re having a rough day. Love them, completely. Be happy yourself.

The search for happiness should be a lifelong crusade for anyone and this would make this world a happy place to live in, lol! I am happy, and i always to try to day in and day out, no matter what i always try to find ways to put a smile on my face, either by looking at my children or just simply reminiscing of happy moments in my life. What really makes me happy is making a difference in someone's life, and that to me is a very satisfying, and the happiness is incomparable to anything. I guess making others happy would fall to that, and that would surely make me happy.

We should make enjoy happiness...don't lack one of them...Life is very short then we should be happy every day. It is easy for me to smile, i smile whole day even with a small things: i smile when seeing my cat play or any thing on the way that is funny or thinking of nice memories, etc...

when you make someone happy then i think that will make you happy. why else would you like to make someone happy if it won't make you happy? :) happiness is a choice, therefore one has to choose life's bright side even with all the adversities present. :) we only have one life so better make the most of it rather than complain.

Hello. I believe happiness is in the hands of the individual. I choose to be happy. I choose to do things that make me happy. No one can really make anyone happy all the time. Someone can do something for someone that brings them joy, and how ever long that joyfulness lasts is up to the individual experiencing it. Be happy, laugh, make someone else laugh it is all about bringing joy into our lives and the lives of others.

It is true we can’t make someone be happy but what we can do is do one small simple act of kindness. We have sometimes many opportunities in the course of a day to do so. This might seem odd to some but most people know the saying, “it is better to give than receive”. I always thought that was rather not logical. I mean, I thought it was a nice thing to do but logically it did not make sense that it would be better. I had to think, to ponder over it, to reason why it is better. Giving is good for the receiver as well as the one doing the giving. So both, be happy giving.

I think that happiness comes from within, therefore it is just not possible to make someone else happy. Happiness is a conscious choice one makes. One can decide to be happy or to be miserable, sad whatever. It's all up to us what we choose to do.
