Excellent article about Happiness. I liked reading your analysis on this subject.
I believe, that different people have different ways to be happy.
That reminds me of a quote, ‘It’s so simple to be happy, but it’s so difficult to be simple.’
Thank you for sharing this wonderful read.
I enjoyed your article about happiness, Pamela. It's true different people find different reasons to be happy. I especially found it fascinating to learn which countries of the world are the happiest. Thank you for the awesome share.
Thank you, Chitrangada, for sharing Pamela's post.
Thanks for sharing this hub about happiness. Chitrangada.
Hi Pamela, What a great topic for today; my sister and I were just talking about why some of her friends do not seem happy. I am a positive person who smiles at people while grocery shopping and speaks to anyone who wants to talk, especially women. I do not smile so much at men because I get into trouble here in the backwoods of Florida.
I mostly agree with Mr. Lincoln, my favorite president, and a little bit with Mark Twain. I love life, and yes, it is very difficult at times. However, I live by my words, "Rise Above It." Life is too short to let the negative side of it become a silent partner.
Thanks for writing this, and I will be silent now.
Your Hub friend,
Pamela is right in saying that people with insufficient income for enough food and adequate housing are probably not happy. People in this situation may be able to forget about their problems for a little while, which is good for their mental health, but the awareness of the problem returns. Not everyone can find a solution for these problems, at least in the short term.
Chitrangada, I just saw this post this morning, so thank you for posting my article. I like your quote, and it is so true. I am glad you like the article. I appreciate all your comments, as always.
Rosina, I'm glad you enjoyed reading the article. I think you are both right about people finding different reasons to be happy. I wonder what makes the facts make up the happiest countries.Thank you for your thoughtful comments.
Bobbi, I'm glad you enjoyed the article. It sounds like you are usually a happy person, and the behaviors you described are just like me. I smile and talk to people in the grocery stores too. Where are you in FL? I like in Jacksonville. Thank you for all your comments.
Linda, I agree with your comments. If you don't have enough to eat, or maybe you can't feed your children, then you are not goin to be happy much of the time. I appreciate your comments.
An interesting read; thanks for sharing.
Coming from Europe I probably have a slightly different perspective on happiness than the average American e.g. from my experience Europeans tend to worry less about money and have a more balanced life/work relationship!
In the EU & UK by law every employee has to have six weeks paid leave per year; and in Britain, by law, every employee has a legal right to request ‘flexible working’; so we get plenty of leisure time in Europe to spend with our family and friends – and I think that goes a long way towards achieving happiness.
Yeah, to a point, poor people without enough food and lack of adequate housing may not be particularly happy; although I am middle class, my parents were not - I grew up in a slum, but we were happy. And although I am middle class, many of our close friends are poor, but in many ways they are happier than many people with money.
Yes, sure, not having enough money to pay all your bills, food, heating, housing etc. is stressful, but people I know who are in that situation enjoy life just as much as people with money; they make the best of the situation – attitude of mind. Although I guess, with the welfare system we have in the UK most poor people are not going to starve or end up homeless – which makes stress less stressful!
Excellent article by Pamela. Australia just scraped in. Thank you for sharing, Chitrangada.
Great writing Pamela.
It's hard to believe that people cannot find happiness.
I do understand that when we are striving to make ends meet...it can be difficult, but hopefully one can find a glimmer of happiness to get them by for another day.
Covid certainly challenged us all.
We realized alot of things that made us happy were out of reach...like my favorite restaurant.
Thanks Chitrangada for sharing Pamela's article with us. The feeling of happiness is different for each person, yet, there are some commonalities. The worldwide pandemic has certainly affected people for all kinds of reasons. What I found most interesting was the list of countries where their residents appear to be most happy. Wishing everyone reading this an abundance of true happiness!
