What is happiness for you ? I can hardly define it even . I haven't feel it anymore for the longest time. I am always sad. Not my intention to be sad , who wants to be sad always ? None ! , but i don't know seems sadness comes from within. Sadness does not leave. Sometimes i am telling myself like i am the epitome of sadness. Share me your definition of happiness friends !

I think happiness for me is the contentment of what I have...Yes...I am happy...happy and gay because I am contented of what I have and what I can offer to my family...

Good day to you Angelpink, To be honest with you, before, I can define happiness in its simplest word as "to be with my family." As I am feeling that kind of emotion whenever I am with my family. But due to the situation that happened for the past months, I cannot say that phrase anymore. Thus, being my family now does not indicate that I am still feeling happy. Because, they push me to be away from them. Until such time that I have chosen to leave out from our home last month.

Yes , yes Aira situation in life made us forgot to define what is happiness . We are into so much that nothing we can see and feel but all poignant thing . We can not even remember as to when did we last giggle or even smile ! This is a reality to some , it is so difficult to be in this world , killing ! Hope coming days would be a little bit sunnier and a smiling one for you and me !

Actually , no one loves to live in a poignant world ! All of us wants to have a colorful , gay life but sometimes time doesn't permit.So hard to cross the sea when the tide is high , but sometimes we have no choice but have to. Sometimes we have no choice but to be okay no in the sad world. It's okay , all will pass friend , life is touch and go !

Happiness is a short feeling, I am/feel happy if I can say I am/feel satisfied. It's not the same but the feeling of being satisfied with what I have, reached, am, the day is going etc is way more important to me as that short moment of happiness.

Yes i agree there is but a different happiness if one is satisfied and contented in life. Sad to say i am not. That is why i am forever poignant !

Happiness is everywhere, sometimes we just missed to recognised it. Being alive, healthy and able to spend time with our love ones is actually happiness which many people do not have. I try to make sure I say 'Thank you' for all the blessings I received everyday. Today I have toothache (that is sad), my second sister look for the mimosa plant and grind it for me to put it on. I felt happy that my sister cares for me. The love she showed make me felt better. Looking at my son doing his project makes me happy too Happiness is energy, therefore be happy and more happiness will come

Sometimes because we are busy with our struggles , we no longer notice the essence of things around us and worst thing we forgot to be grateful for it because we are busy finding those things that can make us happy. We forget that we don't need to look for those things out , yes all we have to do is to be sensitive , to feel what is around. Beautiful Evening !

Very true , the best thing in this life is to be free. One could never be happy if she is in that cage , life is beautiful if we can fly soar high .

Happiness is a choice. My happiness is just being with my family and able to survive the day to day living. Please share why you are sad always. Maybe you need someone to listen and advice you on something? I hope you will have this attitude that see things in a brighter side. I am also in a sad state now but I do just think of happy thoughts. It is hard we can do it!

Yes i agree it is a choice ! That is why sometimes you have no choice but to be sad, that's the only option available , no other tune left for you so have to sing with that tune. Yes , family could be the sole reason why we need to live and continue the battle . I felt your concern , so glad to hear from you Bluespy. Good Evening !

Happiness is when you are hungry, you have money to buy food to eat for poor people. Happiness is when you get home, your family have cooked meals for you, and you can eat your meal soon without going to the restaurant. Happiness is when you fall ill, someone in your family remind you of taking medicine. Happiness is when you did your work well, and you hear the praise from others... Anyway, happiness is all around us. It may be small, but it's happiness. I believe everyone has experienced happiness. Nice weekend!

That is very true , happiness comes from very very small things sometimes even it comes from nonsense , silly things but sometimes ,people can hardly spare you this thing. It looks like it would cost them that much if they will spare this thing to you. Actually we don't need abundance inorder to be happy , often those little things makes wonder and magic.

I think happiness can be achieve if we do not have high expectation. We should be grateful even if we were blessed with even small gesture. I felt happy when my son fried egg for me. However, due to financial constraint since I am retired now, happiness is overshadowed by limitations. But, I have make my choice to live happily everyday, focus on happiness and live life to the fullest. I believe more blessings from God will come to those who are grateful and give thanks to Him. Al the best

Maybe , maybe you are right , this expectation kills our happiness since sometimes it's the causes of all our heartaches and pain. Human as we are , can't be prevented that we expect a little that we give though we verbally say , no i am not expecting but deep inside our heart shouts differently. That is why we must be sensitive to others. Why hinder other people of the little things that make them happy , aren't you happy you made one soul smile today ? Glad to see you being the first here. Have a great weekend !

Happiness. I myself do not know, what is happiness, what is the meaning of happiness, such as whether people are happy? Happy is a taste that tastes it, if deemed felt like a taste that tastes have never felt, It is rather difficult to be understood. may be a simple, happy is unspeakable. Happy is a highway that can not be described with words.
