the secret to happiness in my opinion is to do the things that make you happy, things you enjoy doing by yourself. doing things by yourself means, finding who you really are and you dont have to worry about letting yourself down. surround yourself with good positive people that you dont have to pretend around who arent negative because theyll just weigh you down. always try to find the brighter side of things, if there is know brighter side then realize thats a part of life then move on from it. pretty much, happiness isnt anything you can learn its a lifestyle and as we grow we learn from our past and we get a little closer to being happy... at least thats the way I think it goes lol.
