I'm content... Which is not the same as "happy", but is not "unhappy" either.

I am happy.  This is why:  My adulthood is so much better than my childhood.  I live in a democracy where my rights are enshrined and I have had opportunity before having education.  I am safe.  There is no violence or threat of violence in my life.  All my primary relationships are in good condition.  I have a garden, cats, and books.  My House Boy of three decades still suits me.  I have what I need and want for only simple things.  When I was a kid, I had no idea that this could be my life.

That's what is important, as long as you find a reason to be happy & be hopeful & strong for the future & pleasant by the present, your life would be great &you have the chance to make it greater. if you can't fly, run, if you can't run, then walk, if you can't walk,crawl, but whatever you do, you need to keep moving forward.

I'm happy & i try to stay happy even with problems. Cause anger/sadness  bring negativeness & negativeness leads us to failure. But happiness activate very useful hormones in our body, makes us cheering, bring positiveness & positiveness leads us to solutions to make the problem done & also to realize the manner of the problem & how it created to makes us understand it!

Happy comes from the word hap meaning good luck or fortune.  So for me it is a "no." I prefer content, but in a world controlled by the government, church, big pharma and the federal reserve it is, unless you are an elite, very difficult to maintain a state of being content or good fortune, because you are constantly trying to balance the books, everything we do is an interaction with "the system" which squeezes you. Within all that I can enjoy the company of loved ones, wildlife and the green earth about us, but life is very difficult with so many laws (statutes), corruptness and controlled by money. Much of life is made of an imprisonment of suffering and stress related illness, waiting for the next bill to plop on the doormat, and programmed by the media. I yearn for the days when we lived on the land freely without such fears.  I was in the supermarket the other day and a sign on the shelf said "24hr CCTV, for your own safety" and it sent shivers up my spine. There is no where you can go without being watched by Big Brother and they tell you it is for "your" safety. Are we not meant to be more "civilised" now than we were 10,000 years ago? Or are we still the untamed savages, the mob?

Why wouldn't I be happy. I'm living in a menage a trois with Mrs Didge and my laptop. And, of course, doggy makes four.

What more could a man want?

And a teacher I'd have given an arm and a leg for when I was at school. :=)

For the most part, yes. I have roof over my head, food in my cupboard and friends and family that I love and love me in return. There are challenges at times that stress me out, but someone or something will usually remind me not to sweat them because they aren't going to last forever.

I don't get it, why would someone be happy. Life is not as complexed as the Universe intended. In fact it is based upon a binary law of do or die. There's no happiness, there's no sadness. These are only momentary chemical releases in your brain. The sooner you realise what the meaning of life is(eat, drink, survive, reproduce) the easier it will be to accept every so-called "emotion" you are about to experience.

Lol, joking, I just finished work and it's Friday, of course I'm happy!
