Are indifferent people the happiest?

May 23, 2016 6:21am CST
So many times, I've caught myself crying my eyes out over others' problems or involved myself in my friends ' issues a little more than what was good for me. I sometimes wonder if people who don't care about things too much are in fact the happiest. Maybe there's some solace in staying so detached from everything.

We do not have to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders.

No by detachment I mean, even to ones own problems or problems of our very close loved ones.. I have had a moral dilemma in the recent past as to whether such levels of detachment would be called plain selfish. But i find that I'm happier that way

There is, I am often called aloof and indifferent and I am for a reason. First, I am able to only concentrate or focus on the issues I have in myself and family. Second, I can limit my "meddling" within close friends. As much as I can, I try not to bother myself with other stuff.. And yes, it contributes to my happiness
