Are you happy?
Are you happy?


Happiness is an elusive feeling, but it can be found when we are living the way that makes us happy. We all want to feel happy, but it's a matter of identifying what makes you happy. If you don't know what makes you happy, take time to figure that out before moving on to other things in your life. The goal isn’t just being happier, but also taking action and doing things that make you happy every day—even if they're small things.

What are our expectations?

Are you happy?

The answer to this question depends on who you ask. If it's yourself, then "sure" or "I guess" might be your response. But if it's someone else asking—maybe a friend or colleague—you might hesitate before answering honestly. Because what seems like a simple question is actually very complicated: What do they mean by happy? Is there such thing as happiness? And if so, why is it so elusive? The truth is that happiness exists within the context of our expectations and those of society at large.

When psychologists talk about people's expectations, they aren't referring simply to what we want but rather how we think things should turn out based on past experiences and cultural narratives about success (or failure). When these expectations are met (or exceeded), we feel good; when they aren't met (or exceeded), we feel bad—and this feeling will affect both your behavior and your emotional well-being over time.

How could you ever be satisfied with what you have?

It's easy to get caught up in what we don't have. The grass is always greener on the other side, and you can't miss what you never had.

But this is where I say that we need to be happy with what we have, because if you're not happy with it, then why would anyone else be? We are all human beings trying to live our best lives. Why not try your best at doing just that?

Contentment and happiness go hand-in-hand.

Happiness is a state of mind, not a destination. That’s what I believe; that is the essence of my life philosophy.

As you may know, I am a very happy person. I have my ups and downs like everyone else but overall, I am happy with life and how it has turned out for me. However, it wasn’t always this way!

I used to think happiness was something you could achieve if only you had enough money or enough time or enough good things happening in your life."

Is it everyone else's fault that you are unhappy, or could some things change?

Is it everyone else's fault that you are unhappy, or could some things change?

If the answer is the latter, consider these questions:

  • How do I act? Am I pleasant and kind to others? Or am I quick to anger and easily annoyed?

  • What are my expectations of myself and others? Am I always doing more than my fair share of work (even though it's not necessary)? Do I expect perfect behavior from those around me (and then get upset when they don't live up to my expectations)?

  • How do my thoughts affect my attitude about life in general and other people in particular. Have I allowed myself to think negative thoughts about other people without questioning their validity - even when these thoughts might not be true at all?

Are all of your relationships healthy?

The relationships you have with those around you are crucial to your happiness. Your friends, family, and significant others provide an outlet for conversation, fun activities, support and encouragement. On the other hand, they can also be a source of stress and pain if they are toxic in any way.

The people who surround you on a day-to-day basis can affect how happy or unhappy you feel on any given day. If there is conflict between these individuals (or those who hold some sort of power over them), it may be affecting how well everyone performs at work or school as well as their overall moods when spending time together outside of those places where they interact regularly

If a key relationship ends, is that the end of happiness for you?

So what if you lose the people around you? You don't need them to be happy. You can be happy without them, and you can also be happy in their presence. If a key relationship ends, is that the end of your happiness? No. Maybe it will take some time to feel comfortable with yourself again (and maybe even longer than expected), but there is no reason why being single has to make you unhappy forever.

You could find that being alone gives you more time for self-reflection, introspection and maybe even self-improvement—which might lead to personal growth and greater happiness later on down the line anyway! It's worth noting here that even if someone does come along later on down the line who loves spending time with us just as much as we love spending time with them: we still need some quiet alone time once in awhile too... so let's not forget about those times either :)

Are you ready to get out of your comfort zone or live life within the boundaries that hold you back from happiness.

The first step to getting out of your comfort zone is taking that first step. I know it’s scary, but you can do it. You have to stop being afraid of failing or what others will think about you if they see who you really are. I know we all like to be liked and accepted by others, but sometimes it’s better for us as individuals if we don’t conform and fit into the mold of what everyone else thinks we should be like.

We need more people willing to show their true selves without fear or embarrassment for who they truly are inside, so go ahead and take that leap! You won't regret it!

Realize what makes you happy and what doesn’t, and then do the things that make you happy.

Realize what makes you happy and what doesn’t, and then do the things that make you happy.

Start by making a list of what makes you happy, and then make a list of things that don’t make you happy. Then cross out the ones in the second list that can be eliminated from your life, or at least minimized. Do this until there are no more items left in either list—then keep doing it!

Stop waiting for happiness! Do not postpone your happiness for some future date because life is short, unpredictable and uncertain.

What happens when you put off happiness? Nothing good. Studies show that the more we delay our happiness, the longer it takes to achieve and the more painful it becomes. We often put off happiness because we want to be certain of achieving it before we act; however, this can lead to unhealthy behaviors like compulsive thinking and feeling guilty about your past decisions. It's important to remember that no one is perfect; everyone makes mistakes! If you've made a mistake in your life but have tried everything in your power to fix it, then don't beat yourself up over it! Instead, learn from the experience so that you won't repeat past mistakes again later on down the road.

Happiness comes from taking action and doing things that make us happy and doing them often.

Happiness is a choice. It’s not something that happens spontaneously, but rather it is something we create through our own actions. Happiness isn’t some faraway place where you have to go and live; it’s right here in your life, waiting for you to recognize it and take action!

Happiness is an important part of being healthy, as well as having a positive outlook on life. The more you focus on being happy, the easier it will be for this state of mind to occur naturally under all circumstances. While there are certain things that can make us happy (such as having friends or family), the most important factor contributing towards our joyfulness is ourselves - our attitudes towards life and all its challenges can help us achieve what we desire most out of existence: peace of mind!


If you have a hard time finding happiness in life, then it may be time to take a look at what is holding you back. It could be that your expectations are too high or unrealistic or that you aren’t taking action towards achieving those goals. Happiness comes from taking action and doing things that make us happy and doing them often.
