Happiness

"I have learned to seek my happiness by limiting my desires rather than attempting to satisfy them." - John Stuart Mills

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me happiness was the key to life. When I was at school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote "happy". They told me I didn't understand the assignment, I told them they didn't understand life." - John Lennon

"Happiness is a direction not a place." - Sidney J. Harris

Material things and luxuries are not what make you happy. What makes you happy is giving up those luxuries and material things for the good of others and knowing that you do not need them.
What makes you happy inside is not just doing the job but doing the job right. Until you have sweaty palms and your brain aches you are not doing the job right.

Happiness is an emotion,not a direction. It is opposite to sadness. Satisfaction of a "job well done", is not happiness; it is contentment. Not quite the same thing.

Then you aren't a happy person. Everything you say on my forums is negative. You just have a problem

To be fair some people do get happiness from their job or social stature. You can't say what makes another person happy, they need to discover it for themselves.

There are two types of people, one is more emotionally fulfilled by friends and family, the other by popularity and material things. The second has the most fleeting happiness, but both groups feel the same depths of joy, just from different sources.

Personally, while I save money like a hoarder, I've always found my happiness in the company I keep and things money can't buy. [But I do want my own house one day and to travel hence the crazy savings] You just have to hope that at some point people discover what makes them happy. Everyone's different, be who you are, do what you love, and forget the rest.

Actually, I am a very happy person. I am always cheerful, I try not to worry needlessly. Perhaps I am more "content" rather than always happy. I have had some sadness in my life; but I very soon got over it!

Thewitch that quote by John stuart Mills or whatever is the only thing you wrote that makes deep sense. Nakoshema im sorry but unfortunately i disagree with you, i have found happiness in both minimising friends and distancing family and disconnecting myself from the material.i guess then there are 3 types of 'happy people' already...
