The second objection is that there are no substantive theories that completely define what it means to be satisfied, therefore, no logical examination of the importance of satisfaction to one’s happiness (Haybron,2011). The third objection speaks to the complex nature of the life of satisfaction. This theory is completely based on how important satisfaction is to the life of any one individual. It, therefore, was not an objective approach either. The emotional state is another theory that was especially relatable.
It can be gain by doing achievement an individual accomplish through their life and show some joy into their self. In cases where happiness can be passed on to another person in the same area to have that pleasant feeling that may be there. Certain material items can be their happiness if an individual really wants them to make them happy. It could that their pride is blinding them form what true happiness is and sometimes that they do not realize. Other negative emotions can happen when there is a certain point where there is no hope and do not seem to move on from if it’s really bad or difficult.
A Columnist for the New York Times, and a Commentator for the PBS News Hour David Brooks, persuasively reminds us in his essay What Suffering Does, our primary goal as humans is to maximize happiness. Individuals who encounter suffering explore beneath the course of life and discover that that are not exactly what they envisioned themselves to be (567). However, it comes down to the individual as to how they deal with it. While some wallow in the misery and use it as a crutch. Others move past it and expand their lives to pursue their passion, which is a sympathy tool towards happiness.
Just as there are no specific goals that will guarantee you happiness. When reading this blog, you will not find the essential keys on hot to be happy or the easy steps to be happy because I don’t promise you that.

The practice of selfishness is in itself the inability to practice self-love; and therefore the incapacity to love. Selfishness is in essence the mere opposite of self-love. | One can only love another inasmuch as one loves oneself, otherwise one is never loving freely.

This discovery explains that “nothing in your own life plans or aspirations and accomplishments will alter a built in, hardwired capacity for contentment,” (Kingwell). Genetics determines a person’s ability to obtain certain levels of happiness despite their search for happiness. Although genetics are a limiting factor towards one’s contentment, even the geneticists do not have a definition of happiness. In the conclusion, Kingwell asserts that philosophical thinkers have some truth in their thinking that questioning the definition will lead to unhappiness and he also believes that the geneticists are only looking at the facts instead of introspectively “raising the deeper question of what they, or we, mean by happiness,” (Kingwell). This type of thinking, the kind that limits the human understanding of happiness, is the hurdle /limiting factor/ that puts a damper on finding the true definition.
That is true, but nothing can change the bad things that happen, that’s all put in God’s hands; I can assure you that looking at things in the best way possible will greatly help your situations and put you on a better road to peace and happiness. Heartless people may also argue that helping others achieve their happiness does not to help them.
