What does the concept happiness mean?
Is happiness depending on good health, a lot of material stuff or Money, maybe to love or be loved?
By my point of view happiness is acceptance .when you accept the thinks as they are your mind relaxes and will focus on other things without any pressure and there is real happiness.Mind without pressure and without fear of sorrow's is equals to happiness.

It's human nature to always have a (desire) for something you don't have. It gives us a reason to get out of bed or have something to look forward to. We replace one goal with another.
Some people are happy if they have healthy loving relationships with friends, family, spouses or "significant others".

Being (content) is far more common.

Truth be told there is always something horrific or some atrocities going on around the globe. "Ignorance is bliss".
