Things don't make you happy. Decision makes you happy, then you attract things. Not the other way around.
Some of the happiest people on this planet are those that live in cultures that value relationships above possessions. It is our constant striving tp have more and better ourselves that makes us so unhappy.
When you say everything we want to be happy are you talking about material things only ,eg property, cars, money, etc because no of course its not enough, the only way to be truly happy is to be content within yourself, knowing that everyday you have tried your best in every thing youve done, weather its for yourself or others, And last thing at night being able to sleep with a clear mind. And lucky you if you have the material things thrown in too!
It's a subject of much debate. . .
If you're diagnosed with true clinical depression, then it's possible you could have everything you ever wanted, yet you're still unhappy. The reason why I'm hesitant to mention the word depression is that it's the most over diagnosed illness around. It's often handed out to poor people who have real reasons for being unhappy.
When we don't have all the things we want, we are sure that if we did, we would be happy. But truthfully happiness has to come from a place within--things might soothe that empty place for a short time--but in the long run "things" just can't make you happy.
no, happiness, to some extent, is the mental feeling, even you have all the things you want at the present time, you still cannot be happy mentally.
Personally I believe that only immaterial things in life brings true happiness , if you have that then I would say it is
The richest most famous people in the world have professed to be utterly miserable. No darlin, having everything we want will not make you happy.
What makes happiness is loving God, loving others, and having what you need and having gratitude for it.
Our wants are usually driven by our ego, and those wants, once gotten, will only lead to more wants. If you want to be happy, strive for what you need.
I agree with Lee Millan about relationships being valued in the happiest cultures.
If you can figure out what you need, and get thoses needs met/satisfied, you will have very few wants.
