There are activities for everyone out there, no matter who you are to make you happy; you just have to get out and find them. Lastly, I believe the last key to happiness if to look at everything in the most possible way. If you look at everything negative then you will never be truly happy and you won’t have very many people who wants to be around a Debby Downer. Being happy is a choice, as Abraham Lincoln said,” Most folks are happy as they make up their mind to be” you have every right to be happy, its just up to you to make it
What Happiness Is In the essay “What Happiness Is,” Eduardo Porter states that happiness is a slippery concept. He believes that happiness doesn’t have a specific definition, it means different things to each person. In the essay happiness is broken down into 3 parts: satisfaction, positive feelings, and the absence of negative feelings.

Most people agree that stereotypes are wrong, but are still guilty of doing it. Stereotyping is also kinda like lying. Everyone does it even if they don’t mean to, it’s just a flaw that is going to take some work to get under control in order to stop it. Stereotypes can help you stay clear of certain people, but that does limit you and who you know.
Just be Yourself Ashly Hinnenkamp “ Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.” – unknown. This quote is a good example of how not to worry about what other people think and say about you. Stephanie Pellegrin as an adult tells her younger self that it doesn’t matter if you fit in because it all works out in the long run. I feel like this quote relates to the story because it’s talking about fitting in and not caring what people think or say about you. In ‘Just be Yourself’ the author explains that you never know what the future holds, that it’s okay to be an outsider, and finding out who you really are.

Living a life of happiness comes from doing things that you have a passion for. If you live without guidance from your passions, it is very hard to be content. In “The Great Gatsby” written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, a lot of individuals are hindered from true joy because they live for things that they aren’t passionate about. Finding satisfaction in life has to come from doing things that you’re passionate about, not things that only give you temporary happiness. The wealth and worldly possessions of an individual can make life fun but it can only be short lived if they aren’t happy about how they’re living.

True this might be painful but the guilt we feel, it’s a good thing. We must allow ourselves to feel the pain, the guilt, the shame; the day that hurting another person as a result of our own mistakes doesn’t bother us is the day we’ve got real problems. So what does happen after we make the inevitable mistakes we do? For all our justifications of making mistakes because we’re human, where we differ is with the choices we make after we falter. There’re some who feel so ashamed by the hurt they’ve caused others that they fall into the never-ending cycle of self-loathing and guilt that they’re doomed to repeat them.
How do you know what truly makes you happy and what can you do to get to that level of content? This is a question majority of society sits and ponders on. Happiness is very subjective.
