There's no one else to judge better than ourselves as to whether we are happy with our own lives. Happiness is subjective and perhaps may not be fully quantified. But then, we can have our own sets of parameters such as relationship, financial security, achievements, career, family and the likes which we can use to gauge our personal happiness. So, given what you have right now, are you happy and satisfied with your life? What made you say so and what do you still need or crave for in life?

I'm not happy right now because I have so many problems to take care of. To all the parameters you've mentioned I have problems that belong to each of that. I truly feel miserable, I don't know how to solve my problems. I'm trying hard to solve each one step by step. I wish that one day will come when I'll experience true happiness. I'm sure with the help of the Lord that day will come.

Amen to that. looking at as a whole can indeed turn us miserable. but patching things up little by little will help alleviate your misery. the next thing you know, you are already out of the hole. good luck mizra.

I am very happy with my relationships in life, and i think that is the area that is modt important. I am not happy with some ofhter things though. I am very unhappy with all the health problems my family members, friends and I have been facing the last few years. I hope we have had enough of this for a while. I am not happy with our finances either right now. this is also due to the health issues. All in all though i am pretty content. There are people that are far far worse off than I am.

there's always happiness and sadness. like what they say, you will never appreciate being happy when you haven't experience being lonely. moving on is the key.

At the moment, im not happy- as i have been struggling with a lot of things lately specially with the consequences of my actions. But i try my best to leave it all to him- I keep on reminding myself that everything has a purpose and has a good reason for happening. I try to keep my hopes up and trust that the lord won't abandon me. Even if it's so difficult to trust because of all the problems that i'm going through. However, i know that i have things to be continually be grateful for, but at the moment, these things or events are just not enough to make me feel happy. =(

I'm happy with my life of course but I admit that I'm not contented. I'm not contented because my 3 siblings are not here yet...maybe soon and I'm still studying while working. Maybe if I'll be more stable...then I'll be very happy and contented. Life is tough but I love it.

one should continue to dream and not rest on his/her laurels. by having that itch, you will move forward with grace.

The last last couple of days, i appreciate the life i have . My 2 kids are with me. My parents and family are there for me all the time to support and comfort me when i am down.But deep in my heart, i crave something that i dont know what it is. Maybe because i still hate someone and no matter how i tried myself to forgive him, but still i cant. And it is my xhusband the father of my kids.

Overall, I am pretty happy with my life right now. I am caring for my husband who is terminally ill. Although I am sad about his illness, I am happy I am able to care for him at home and have him with me. I feel I have many blessings and have had a good life, so far. I have very few regrets about my past. Nice discussion. Thank you.

Once you accept that nothing in your life is done on chance and that everything has a meaning, then you will be happy.

There are some things that I know need improvement. But it is nothing that cannot be fixed or too worry to much about. I mean I am not sitting in the corner swaying back and forth contemplating killing myself. For example, I never completed my college education. However, I am doing my best to try and correct that now. Will I be satisfied then? I don't know. I hope so.

as far as relationship is concerned, yes, i am very much happy and contented with the things going on between my husband and i and i am truly blessed to have him and our daughter. financially wise, well, we have some sort of problems but as long as we are there to support each other, we can overcome any of that and have a happy ending after all.

Yes, I am happy. There are still things that I would like to do in life and some things that I would change, but for the most part, I am a happy person. I have a good husband, god extended family, am healthy and I have a fulfilling career. We also have the money we need for the necessities and a few extras. There are many people much less fortunate than I am and I always try to remember that when I get greedy !!
