The purpose of this essay is to pick apart Mill’s essay and to give my own personal opinion about happiness. Stuart believed that you could achieve happiness by helping others achieve happiness and by finding things that you enjoy in life. I believe the key to happiness is helping other people achieve their happiness, do things that you enjoy doing, and looking at things in the brightest way possible. I honestly believe that everyone wakes up in the morning wanting to be happy, I have never seen a person who wakes up saying, “ I want to have an absolutely miserable day today”. It is human nature to strive for happiness and do things that you enjoy to do.
“Can Society Function Without Respect?” To me I fully disagree that society can function without respect because respect is what holds society together. Especially with respect there is optimism which in my opinion is showing positivity, care, or respect to someone. I like to focus on being optimistic, and I would like to think of myself as an optimist by talking to people, making them laugh, or just helping out. Staying on the topic the whole world would not be able to function because there is not one person on earth that does not need or deserve a little respect. Even some people don’t deserve as much respect than others, everyone still shows optimism in many different ways, some just being their selves.
That is freedom. This is nothing else.” (Rand, 101) All along he knew his happiness came from being alone, yet it wasn’t till now he realized the great burden of constantly serving others. His great epiphany derived the question, “What is my life, if I am but to bow, to agree and obey?” (Rand, 97) At this point he realizes his curse of exising as inquisive is actually his “greatest virtue.” (Rand) The thought of existing for others becomes repelling and Equality instead makes his goal to fight for the freedom on man and for the welfare that comes from
There are simple things in life that we didn’t expect that will greatly affect our whole personality. Gender, social status, intelligence, performance, educational background, and integrity are some of the constituents that are used to judge and label our individuality. There are conjoint places around the world that we thought will be safe for us, will value and appreciate who we truly are, and a lot of us consider that to be the last place who will treat us punitively and unreasonably. Most of the times our sexuality overthrows us in a way that we are being restricted to the benefits that should be offered and experienced by everyone without any stress and difficulties in obtaining it. If we are going to examine our current situation with great depth and sincerity we will come down with a notion that will make us realize as to when an individual’s sexuality became a passport to be treated discriminatorily and differently.
Megan conclusion said that a person is not less free if they act out of love. She continues to say that even though you want to do everything to make your partner happy it does not mean that they control your decisions. Even though someone might be in love it doesn’t not mean everything they do is to make their partner happy, therefore just because someone is in love does not mean they lose some of their freedoms. I think that it was the best argument because it seemed to be the most applicable to most people's lives. Everyone has people they love and if they were controlled by those people there would be little to no free will in the world.
What is Happiness? Technically speaking, happiness is a state of well being and contentment and is also known as a pleasurable experience but no one is positive of the true meaning of happiness.”What is happiness? More words have been written about this great philosophical question than any other than perhaps any other…. Science can illuminate components of happiness and and investigate empirically what builds those components”(Seligman 1380). These components are states as pleasure, engagement, and meaning.
Lynard Skynard clearly believes you should be nothing more than yourself because you won't understand anything better than your own self. Than he continues to go on and say “ don't live o fast troubles will come and pass”. That really goes with what it's about to be a transcendentalist. Everyone has their own problems so of course things are going to go wrong but don't let that stop you from being you everything in the end will work itself out no no matter how hard it gets. Lynyrd just like many other transcendentalist believe the simple life is the best life you will be much happier than being
Gerardo Our generation will end up living the life that they all want to have a happy life and the one question that some of us are asking our self is what success means to us. The only thing that matter in these world to define us is our own memory’s which is an important thing is life. I do not know who wrote the quote but I like this quote because it explain me in a curtain way. `maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it ‘s about unbecoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.’’ Success to me is to have the dream job that you want to wake up for the rest of you’re living and a happy life but if you look at some of the rich people that is what success mean to them, but if you look at the way they got there some of the reasons are bad that become a positive instead of doing a bad thing in order to accomplish.
It is a fact that 100% of the world has at least one thing to be thankful for. Hard to believe, I know. The positive in life is always there you just have to learn how to look for it. It is important to be thankful and look for the positive in life so that you don’t become depressed. Most people take things for granted and do not focus on what they have but what they do not have.
Joy, glee, bliss, felicity, there are so many words to describe this one feeling we all search for, we know where we want to be but how do we know what roads to take to get to our destination. Happiness is in our daily lives, we believe that we are meant to be happy and need to stop at nothing to find it, the reason being it has been burned into our minds and is all around us. Anywhere from Happy holidays to Happy meals we are centered around this one idea yet we have such a hard time finding it. The declaration of independence states, “...with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the ‘pursuit’ of happiness” even our founding fathers knew that finding happiness isn’t easy so they promised us not happiness itself but the pursuit.
If we ask every person the entire world what they believe on the meaning of life is, we would receive several answers. Many would be differ from others, but most would say something about the effect of living happy and healthy life. Because we are all different from each others, our own description of our life concepts and happiness are bound to differ from the next person. Christopher McCandless perspectives about happiness are simple.
(Albom 103)¨ I agree with Morrie every emotion people go through doesn´t last and we have to learn how to detach so we can live our lives happy and how we want to. One time my parents were going through stuff which lead into them getting separated most of the time that would affect me. But then I got over it because life goes on and you have to enjoy the time you have with the people you love. By me doing this I realized I threw myself into different emotions that would benefit me and I changed my life. Another lesson that Morrie
