Are you satisfied with your life? Nobody is happy all of the time, but some people are definitely more fulfilled than others. Studies on what makes people happy reveal that it doesn't have much to do with material goods or high achievement, it seems to whittle down to your outlook on life , and the quality of your relationship with the people around you. What do you think? Are you happy with your life and which thing make you happy

Hi rohmasiddiqui! ^^ that is really deep question you got.. ^^ Most of the time, i feel satisfied with my life, but there are times when i feel not satisfied and regret what i have done or said. On that moments, i need to push myself to the limit so i can be a better person. To be happy, to feel happy is truly starts from the inside. It's in you yourself. Being happy is not about having all things perfectly as we wish. Being happy is a decision we make to look beyond the imperfections. Cause there is nothing perfect in this world. We just need to do our best, and let God takes the rest. :) And, yes, i am happy with my life. A lot of things, little things, that can make me happy and thanks God for that. I am happy because i still alive till now, i can eat those delicious foods, i can breathe, i can enjoy my life with my families and friends, i have works to do, i have money to spend, i have enough clothes to wear, clean water to drink..and so on..the list can be very long you know.. :D Have a happy day! ^^

Hi rohmasiddiqui, Yes! Happiness is within yourself. If you find fulfillment in life with the best family around I find happiness in it. Material things are needed but having contentment in what I have is just fine as long as I have my happy family. Cheers and happy mylotting! :)

I believe in this and try and tell it to others too and that is it is not what how much one has but what one makes of what one has is the route to true happiness. Having said that yes, I am truly happy. For me my glass is always half full. Nice topic indeed.

Hmm... maybe it is a combination of all those. Because for some people, level of personal achievement and the possessions they have, affect their outlook and maybe even the quality of relationship with others. As for me, well... overall it's ok. =) But life is full of ups and downs as they say. =P So I'm happy with some parts of my life sometimes, and sometimes not.

No I am not happy with my life..money and fame I want this two things in my life then I will be the happiest person.. but the truth is money n fame these two things are useless without good relationships.. if u don't have people around to be happy with your success then everything seems useless... so I think with money n fame relationships are of equal importance.. I am happy from relation point of view.. but from money point of view not satisfied.. I want both the things in my life good relationships and money as well...

I am happy with my life. I live in a bungalow that is ideal for my family. I have three lovely children: my 16 year old son, my 4 year old disabled son and my soon to be 2 year old daughter. I have got two dogs that I adore. We live just 4 miles from the sea in a peaceful area. My hobbies are important to me and the top one of these is traveling to different countries. I like reading books, writing, listening to music, walking, cycling, going on days out and having weekends away. My mom and my sister live close to me so do many of my friends.

hi rohmasidiqui yes and no I am here safe from being homeless but I miss the middle class life in our apartment compared to the stifling have every thing done for you retirement center life. but since my son has to have a full time job instead of the onlym the part time job he has and we must amass a large amt of money to get back into an apartment again for now I stay here in this tiresome retirement center and he is in gov.sponsored housing with three other men. he comes to see me every week and he does work his part time job. the economy is still in the toilet and we are just hoping one day soon he will once again have a good full time job so we can move into an aprtment again. hope is eternal for us. for now yes we must stay happy each dayh and keep our heads. look forward and stay optimistic. the jobless rate is still much t oo high in southern California and living is horribly expensive too.

I agree that people are not happy all the time, of course, because life is not really all about happiness because there are many circumstances, like hardships, sacrifices, distress, misery and agony in the life of a person that he/she should undergone and must surpass unto it to experience great happiness--and this is the real happiness on what I am referring too. Actually there were many reasons, that people become happy, most of the time because of material and luxurious things that they acquired, sometimes of people they are with and so many things under the sun. But do you know what, this is not really that happiness that someone is looking for, that someone life cannot fulfill or satisfy his/her life. Happiness is in our inside, we can feel it if we are contented and satisfied, which means that he/she don't have anything to ask for another.
