Instead happiness comes from a positive mentality, where a person appreciates their blessings and strives to overcome their challenges. The true thinkers, like Lincoln, realize that only they hold the power over their happiness. These wise few, who internally accept their life and decide to be content with their situation, will remain merry despite poverty, familial strife, or any other obstacle. In contrast, those who rely on things to bring them pleasure will be dissatisfied, no matter how fortunate they may appear.
Those who do see the child are more often overcome with anger and despair when seeing this poor child. Even though they realize that the child’s suffering is wrong they also acknowledge that this treatment is necessary for everyone to be happy in their daily lives. Although they care for the child they still do what is right for the majority and act unselfishly by not making changes. It would be selfish to act upon one 's feeling of care for this child. Risking the happiness of everyone else only for the chance of happiness for one would be absurd.
Even Though it might not be for everyone it has a very special place in my heart. The plaza holds my most memorable memories because I have laughed, cried and even made myself look ridiculous.

Nevertheless, in philanthropy, even though it did not give me the confidence and arrogance to conquer to world like tennis did, felt overall more pleasurable than tennis. I realized that by serving others, I not only pleasured my own heart, but also the hearts of those I served. I saw their lives become better, which makes my life happier. I am able to improve my self-esteem, and looking forward to the next
Miss Sarah Griffiths explains how those who have faced a hardship are much happier in the long run. There’s nothing like experiencing the worst to help one appreciate the little things in life. This being said, the question still remains; how can one become happy? The first step is differentiating between feeling happy and being happy. Again, happiness can be a feeling, and also an emotional state.
This was a question that was put before me recently and I thought it an interesting one. For many people the answer is it 's easier to be unhappy, because unhappiness, struggle and complaint are their default beliefs and behaviors. For others, happiness seems to come easily. We all know those people who seem just naturally happy, no matter what. They bounce back from setbacks and keep going along their merry way.

It is human nature to strive for happiness and do things that you enjoy doing. John Mill says, “those only are happy (I thought) who have their minds fixed on some object other than their own happiness” which I don’t agree with, I know personally in my own life there are lots of things that make me happy that don’t even involve other people or their happiness. I feel that most people agree that they want to be happy and strive to find that happiness, whether it is the perfect partner or a good job, everyday. In A Crisis in my Mental History, John Stuart Mill says,” The only chance is to treat, not happiness, but some end external to it, as the purpose of
Perfectionism has proved to cause depression as were most people think of it as a saving grace and it leads to a happy life. Ann W. Smith proves this to us “We live in a culture that values perfection, and that leads us to believe that doing things perfectly leads to happiness and success” (Smith).

It is beautifully written and enjoyable for someone who doesn’t like non-fiction writing very much. Tocqueville really wants people when they read this to understand the US in like no other place, where there are no limits and everyone is as free as they want to be.

Some people do not live for gratification, they simply exist and are seen as a burden to existence. Others thrive on emotional gratification, the feeling after you do something inspiring for another.
