The most honest answer I can give is to hope for the strength to change the things u are unhappy with and also the strength to accept the things you cant. In my opinion, you really can't enjoy anything if your unhappy about everything, so you just have to learn to do with what you've got and make the best you can of it.

We don't all discover our happiness or unhappiness in the same ways. What may be a pleasure for one may be a chore for another. Even if we seem to be unhappy, there are still ways for us to enjoy life. It is the effort we put into our happiness that will show to others.

Life is life, things happen. As long as you breathe you are alive. You will encounter problems, face issues, assume responsibilities. You will have fun, love people and give and receive happiness. There is always balance. It's how you react to everything that you are in charge of. Deal with the issues problems and responsibilities as best you can being thankful for your ability to do so. Open your heart, give of yourself and have a ready smile always and your life will be blessed. It's all about your attitude. Choose to be worried and unhappy all the time and you will be. Choose to be happy and work hard and you will reap the rewards. The choice is yours.

When you aren't happy with every aspect of our lives, I don't think that it is really possible to enjoy our life. That said, I've had periods during my life where there were a lot of things that I wasn't happy about, I would look at those things and when I identified the things that made me the most unhappy, I would take the opportunities that I had to change what I was unhappy about in my life. I believe that is the reason that I am able to enjoy my life today.

There is no room of happiness for people like that, friend. Because he/she never appreciate things which give he/him an idea to be happy

I like Shay2789's answer. Yet, you seem to be describing me.. I've gotten old and not too successful at anything. Now, it's too late for me to get a good job where I live because of my age and race. Yet, I plug away at being successful in my writing career. And the thing that makes me happy now is when I see a baby smiling. They always smile and laugh at me and that makes me happy. But most of the time, even though I am unhappy, I still work hard to make something of myself.

If your life is always unhappy the only way you can be happy is complain! I see this in other people! Alot of people I work with are like this! Most of their unhappy life is their making! They refuse to do something good about don't for whatever reason! Then I know people who put a false front that they are happy while you know they have unhappy lifes! If you want to be happy,make the happiness yourself! Most of the time other people can't do it for you!

Happiness is what we all strive for I think. For some, happiness might be a house with a nice yard, 2.3 kids, a job, family, etc. But as life goes on, these things might not be enough. Some people need a greater purpose than others to be happy. Some people might need things that would make others unhappy in order to feel happy. Many of the things I enjoy, other people find boring and likewise the things other people find interesting I find boring. For me, being in a quiet place where I can relax makes me happy. Even in my sad state of health, I am content, if not happy.

Hello there! There's gonna be more to life than minding an issues of fallen apart. But still, we need to face all hardships in our life which makes us a strong and a better person. Problems are always around. We'll never know when they will strike us. We should be ready and prepare ourselves for the big wave because no person in this earth are experiencing only happiness. People usually forget the most important person in our life which is "JESUS". PRAYER is the most powerful thing in this world. He never fails anyone who asks for his help. Just leave all your burdens to GOD and everything will follow :) LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST. GOD BLESS!

If unhappiness is accompanying you in this walk of life, time to evaluate yourself and find out what is that problem that keeps bugging you which makes life a misery. Happiness is the art of living, the purpose of our existence. It is the true index of the quality of life. Without it, life is dry and meaningless. With happiness, life immediately becomes fulfilling. Happy people keep themselves happy because they know the little ways to appreciate themselves and to see the humour and magic in each moment. Think about it and start living a happy and fruitful life. Remember we only walk once in this life journey.

Hi, Life is ups and downs..sometimes, it can fill with sadness,but sometimes it can fill with happiness. I do believe in fate,some people may look happy,but they don't have a good family and life,they still feel miserable. But there are some people who looks unhappy in certain way,but they always have a good family in their sides. Everyone will have their own difficulties in life and that is when they have to think the way out to get out from these difficulties. For me, when I am unhappy,my face will show it and my smile will also know out that my heart is not in happy mode.

I think I can not enjoy life with all the pains, misfortune and all. I am reminded of this whenever I feel pain during my migraine attack. As if I wanted my life to end because you cannot really enjoy a minute of your life if you always suffer from pain. But of course only God can make it happen.

two things that might help 1. Spend time with people you love 2. Get some sort of hobby that you can do to forget about the problem Yes we all want to be happy all the time but most of as are sad one day!

Live as we know it! Problems are always there either we want it or not. Even if we feel unhappy about it,the problem still there maybe laughing at us. But then no matter how hard we try to fight, sometimes it never end. Happiness is just a state of mind i guess. When you think everything wrong just stop fighting and relax. There are thousands way to enjoy life. after all everything will be fine in the end. Aren't we all have the same phase of life, born-living-die. No plans that are going to guarantee our happiness.

Hi wildfan, from my point of view, try to see things differently, act differently and think openly. Being open minded is the best policy, someone may think it is easier said than done. What in a hurry? Try to change from a smaller scale and see the results. It cost you $0 to try and it will change your life. Don't trust me, trust yourself that you can live a happy and better life forever! I don't motivate others BUT reasoning! I don't sell emotion BUT common sense! I don't talk rooster (original word disallowed) and bull story BUT empirical! I'm not god BUT a normal person like you! Am I selling something here? Someone please tell me... Always be happy!

at one point during our lifetime we get to face unhappy times but we can focus on our other blessings because life must go on.

I have lot of problems in my life. first thing i don't think about them all of the time. to be frank I enjoy my life in our bed. Our children are still small. 11 and 8 years. when my hubby is off my children come to our bed. they spring and jump on us. we play jokes on each other. Our children talk about their school activities and friends. As our children are still small they make us happy by their talks. Yes very happy moments. enjoyment with no money.

As we say face is the index of mind. mind is what does all the thing and i never agree to the fact if someone is poor ....they wont be happy....if you can keep a strong mind then you can see the light at the end of the tunnel....

One has to hope for better in the future, life is short and we must try and make the most of it and what we have, not always easy but we must think positive, and at least try and be happy and be grateful for what we are given in life.
