    Life is better, but happiness is less.
    That's my life.

    I never feel so heavy pressure in my life till now. Sometime I really think I am not living for myself, but for many. ...

    What about yours?

      I feel my life is but a routine, I get up go to work, eat, sleep and then repeat. The weekend is the same as the one before and by Sunday night my venetian blinds look like prison bars.

      People always say oh thank yourself lucky you could be living in squalor in a poor country. But have you ever noticed how some poor deprived communities actually are happier than us because they look out for each other.

      We now live in a selfish society and even the extended family no longer support each other anymore. As for living for myself, oh I wish !

      Happier than before what?

      Personally, my life is a bit more of a struggle these days, but I can honestly say that I am truly and genuinely happy; perhaps for the first time.

    As you haven't been specific, I shall interpret your question as I please ...

    ... and I'm just going to make a coffee, then have lunch. Afterwards, I shall return and inform you of whether I feel happier - or not big_smile

    I used to live my life for only me until I had children, now I live for them and do as much as I can for them.  I still try to do thing for me such as perform and do shows, but most of my life has been changed so that I think about them first.  In doing that, it has made me a happier person.

      Yes, love makes us happy. I also love my families and my friends.

      What if there are just friends and families around us? And we don't need worry about foods, houses, cars, ... smile
      I am going to create a new Hub on this.

      I'm glad, I'm not that happy at the moment, but recent events explain that. I don't hate you for it, because I've been there, I know it's possible, and that's all I need! All I can say, is enjoy it!

    I would say in some ways I am happier - although the upheavals in my life for the last six months or more are enough to make grown men faint. Unemployment, bill collectors, repo'd car, daughter moved back in, and other relationship strains with my other half- they have all taken a toll. But through each, I remind myself that God(or your own personal diety!) never gives us more than we can handle.

    For each crisis, that we have gone through individually and as a family unit, we've all learned and grown from the experiences. I wouldn't trade them for anything, for without adversity, happiness is taken too much for granted.

    Personally, I am MUCH happier now that I was in the recent past. Granted, I was noticeably unhappy for a long time, but I finally got tired of it, got out of a bad relationship, and made way for better things to come along.

    As far as people being in a situation that once made them very happy but no longer does, I think the main cause could actually be boredom. When you're starting off in life there are so many things you want to achieve, goals to work for, found the man/woman who is "just perfect", etc. After years of working, you get that house you always wanted, the promotion at work, and so on and so forth. Once everything is perfect, what challenges are left? Finding new challenges can greatly enhance satisfaction -- if there are no immediate challenges to overcome in your life, consider donating some time. I have found an amazing level of fulfillment working at the animal shelter as well as making quilts for the local homeless shelter. Wherever you are, something needs help, and it has the very nice effect of improving your own mood as well as helping someone else.
