Still Looking for Happiness in Life
December 27, 2016 8:52pm CST
Why there are people who seemed not to be contented with what they have in Life? Why can't they find happiness even if they seem complete in almost everything they want? She has gone to many places in US. Had an extravagant vacation in Canada, Las Vegas, New Jersey, New York, Washington, Pennsylvania, Los Angeles and spent Christmas in Maryland but still saying that she is not happy with her life? She works in Australia and earns dollars. A very big amount compared to what she earns here in the Philippines, but still not happy? My goodness !!! What kind of happiness she is looking for?

First of all who is she? Happiness is state of mind. If one does not want to remain happy or in other words if one cannot tune his/her mind that she is happy, come what may she cannot be happy. Travelling to various places, earning huge amount and have a comfortable life has nothing to do with one's state of mind. A poor man, who could hardly manage two times meal may be more happy than a millionaire because poor man lives for a day and he does not worry about tomorrow.

@magallon - OH! She is your elder sister who does not feel happy even after trips abroad and wealth in her hands. Whatever you have suggested her seems alright and she should listen to your advice carefully. Next time, tell her to count her blessings in life, instead of cribbing.
If a person is basically unhappy he or she seeks luxuries or other ego boosting means to balance offset that. If you are basically a happy person, you create happiness around you and in the lives of others because your mind is free from silly clutter and you can think about what will make you and others happier. The attitude, however, needs to be cultivated from childhood.

Happiness and contentment is never to be linked with money. Pursuit of happiness has been a long time preoccupation of Man. It is like the carrot dangling before the donkey. It seems within reach and yet unreachable. To be happy for no reason is the real trick.
