Happiness is the tendency of a being to have its appetites and intentions fulfilled.
I would not call this happiness. What you describe is satisfaction. For example, lets say that you are hungry, and you fulfill that appetite by eating. You have satisfied the appetite hunger. But this is only a short lived phenomenon that is fleeting. Happiness is more stable and does not waver with appetite changes.
Happiness can come even if you're intentions arent fullfilled dont you think? Happiness is a state I believe. Becouse sadness never leaves until you're happy, and once you're not. You're just sad again.
Can you be dissatisfied and still be happy?
Dont get me wrong, But most (religious) people force themselfs to be happy, thats really inappropriate but it works, right? And it does make you happy. Sometimes...
I think that happiness is a state when you just forget everything that's bad, when you forget your misserable life, but still my parents always fought it.
I mean, for example;
When you're at your "friends" house and you have this feeling of love and "happiness" (whatever that is).
It always ends by the time you have to leave or go home, doesnt it? Instead you're filled with hate or frustration.
So, my parents tell me that instead of letting the sadness be you're normal state, you let the happiness be that... But that just clings wrong with me.
If agony and hate is what comes over you when you realise how chained you are to duty, family and relatives (for example: You wished that you could spend the rest of your life with you're friend becouse you felt so much happier there) Then how can you ever just switch the sadness for happiness? Its the same as taking anti-depressive pills, isnt it?
You make an illusion that you're life is good, but when you find out why you take em' you get more depressed.
What do you think? Happiness is something unreal to me, since it only takes you over for a period of time and then leaves.
I have a feeling that people at this site doesn't attack you for you're horrible grammar, but please give me some critic if its about wrong spellings or these (Doesn(')t, Hasn(')t or You(')re) small commas or what it is. I just want to get used to spelling and normal writing rules.
Sorry to be cynical... :brickwall:
Happiness is chemicals in the brain, released when humans do something that used to increase the chance of survival in the early times of man.
Eat, reproduce, be with your "tribe".
What exactly do you mean by be with your "tribe", anyway? Do you mean family?
