        The unhappiest people are those who have never known peace within.
        Children are born with peace within them and a joy of life but adults can bombard these.
        We must recognize, respect and protect a child's natural sense of peace and joy.

    I would tend to think that comedians are often more unhappy than not due to their use of people's personal experience in their public showings.  I know a lot of comedians are really good at what they do; but, it seems to be that for someone to poke fun at someone else's misfortunes makes the person doing the "poking" seem insecure himself/herself.  I'm just saying; but, I also understand that that is not the case all the time.

        Atheists do not believe in any God and are unhappy because others will not believe in what the atheists are trying to force upon everyone else.
        They are also unhappy because they say that they have no religion but the truth is that they do. The problem eats at them inside because cannot explain it.

            I apologize. Since I am not one myself then perhaps I should have said 'some' or 'a few' because atheist or non-atheist we are all not the same in our ways.

        The only humans who try to force their religion on you are Muslims. With them, it's either submit or die. Christians know that God gave us all free will, so it's up to each of us to either accept or reject Christianity. We never try to 'force' anyone. That's a claim atheists always employ, but it's simply not true.

    Oldest children are the UNHAPPIEST, because they were dethroned by successive siblings, had to give UP their childhoods & adolescence in order to be adults before they were ready, and many had to be second parents instead of enjoying their childhoods.  They also had to ALWAYS put other's needs before THEIRS.  They had to postpone, even forgo their goals in order to be of service to their parents and siblings.

      That may be true in some cases ,but there are different levels of poverty
      Like there is in being wealthy. Some people are rich, some people are filthy rich.
      But I try to keep in mind the words of King Solomon .who was more then rich or filthy rich.
      Reference Bible Ec 2:11 And I, even I, turned toward all the works of mine that my hands had done and toward the hard work that I had worked hard to accomplish, and, look! everything was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing of advantage under the sun. 
      Ec 2:8. I accumulated silver and gold for myself, the treasures of kings and of provinces. I gathered male and female singers for myself, as well as what brings great pleasure to the sons of men—a woman, yes, many women. 9 So I grew great and surpassed anyone prior to me in Jerusalem. And my wisdom remained with me.
      Reference Bible Ec 2:10 And anything that my eyes asked for I did not keep away from them. I did not hold back my heart from any sort of rejoicing, for my heart was joyful because of all my hard work, and this came to be my portion from all my hard work. 
      Reference Bible Ec 2:11 And I, even I, turned toward all the works of mine that my hands had done and toward the hard work that I had worked hard to accomplish, and, look! everything was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing of advantage under the sun.

    I'm not a big fan of lumping people into any category of any kind, and then making assumptions about them.  Enjoy the game, though (and I don't mean to come across as self-righteous). l It's just that - game or not, and interesting (and maybe even "enlightening") as it may be to see the kind of things people think about any group/category of people; I think there's also something to be said for not just skipping this game and finding a thread I like better, and instead not remaining "quiet" about what it is I don't really like about it.

    On the other hand (and in fairness to this "game"), there is also something to be said for bringing out into the open the kind of automatic assumptions or reasoning that people use when they assume one or another thing about any group/category of people.

    Sorry.  Ignore me.  I've got "issues" with this in my personal life, either because I belong to one category or another, belong to too many categories, or just throw people off in general.

        Reference Bible 1Ti 6:17 Give orders to those who are rich in the present system of things not to be high-minded, and to rest their hope, not on uncertain riches, but on God, who furnishes us all things richly for our enjoyment; 


        Mr 10:23 After looking around, Jesus said to his disciples: “How difficult it will be for those with money to enter into the Kingdom of God!”

        Mt 13:22 As for the one sown among the thorns, this is the one hearing the word, but the anxiety of this system of things and the deceptive power of riches choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. 

        Reference Bible Mt 19:24 Again I say to YOU, It is easier for a camel to get through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to get into the kingdom of God.” 

        That was the case then and it still is.

    Poor people find happiness in little things. You do not miss what you never had.
    Since there is a superlative on happy. I guess that 1 will do...
    No sense trying to slick a point across by adding people who forget who they are/where they came from; attempting to fit in with others who seem better than self. Much better.

                  Those who worked hard and ended with nothing are acting imprudently.  They DIDN'T prepare for their future educationally and socioeconomically.  Being poor is a MINDSET which translates into being poor socioeconomically.  THINK please!   If one wants to advance and succeed socioeconomically, one CAN and WILL.  My parents DID IT, they were born impoverished, not just poor, and advanced into the middle class through education, strategizing, and working SMART, not hard.  I was taught that in order to succeed, to have a PLAN and implement a POSITIVE plan of action!

                  My parents inculcated in me the IMPORTANCE of doing things constructively educationally and socioeconomically!  You have got a lot to learn; I knew this at 11 YEARS OF AGE!   My late father was a Black Caribbean while my mother was from the south.  She grew up in a segregated south and STILL SUCCEEDED, there is NO excuse for people in America to be POOR.  Oh, puhleeze, stop with the victimology mindset and psychology.  I'M DONE, discussing this with you is an utter exercise in futility!

But it is very unkind to to remind them that they are. The doctor does his Job by helping and encouraging. You are taking a hammer and hitting your patients in the head as example.

      This response does make me rethink the question.  I cannot disagree that people who endured abuses might have a true struggle with happiness, compared to the person that didn't suffer any abuse.  On the other hand however, some of THOSE people that have been through the most, strive to rise so far above, that they seem to appreciate the goodness in life, and all the richness it offers!  They can appreciate and find happiness in the smallest of things sometimes, that someone that grew up with a silver spoon in their mouth, might not ever even consider or encounter!  Some of the most unlikely people, can be downright miserable!

      The person that has been through severe abuse, might just find the joy in super simple things, and even find healing in them.  Just wanting to look at all sides of the coin.  The more well to do person that has always had it all, may have a way more COMFORTABLE life, but comfortableness doesn't equate to happy.  We just often think it does I think.  Its like a "that grass over there is so much greener" syndrome, sometimes.

    Those that choose views that they want to be good ones, when they are not good ones.  This is evidenced in their trying to defend them, or having to twist  or lie about them.  Also, they go after others views they oppose, mainly using arguments that turn out to be ad hom or strawmen.  I have observed this for at least a full decade and a half now.
