Do you know why it's so hard to be happy? it's because we refuse to let go of the things that makes us sad. what do you think? you think it's right?

Its difficult to be happy for human as we never become satisfy what we have ... we always want more and more in life.

Its not hard to be happy most of the time. Even when your sad you can put a brave face on.If you mop around being miserable and unhappy then i think you will eventually turn into someone who no body wants to be around as you will bring them down

I agree, a smile even when you really don't feel like it, sometimes will lift your spirits, and bring a smile to others....no one likes to be around someone you is down all the time, or complains about everything and everyone.

You're right doreentduran. Maybe because that things that make us sad are valuable to us. And letting go would be very hard. A friend once sent a txt message to me saying "strive to be happy, it is not just a feeling,it's a choice".

You might be right. I have trouble letting go of the past. It effects everything I do and say. I keep trying though. I just can't figure out a way how.

It isn't so hard to be happy. Always look at the brighter side of things. Be optimistic.Don't dwell on life's imperfections. Happiness is a choice,so if you want to be happy,BE HAPPY.

Yes, this is true. When somethings happens, like hurt feelings, we allow bitterness to set in our heart. Not a first, at first we are hurt, that hurt builds. Then we get offened, offense against others builds into bitterness, and we refuse to forgive. Unforgiveness in our hearts is something God says is wrong. Forgiveness isn't always an easy thing to give but if we want peace inside, we must. This doesn't mean we have to have coffee with those who have hurt us, but it release their hold on us...so we can move on an be happy regardless of what they are doing, or saying....
