what causes happiness?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Novenotes : One Thread

I think that being in love with someone can cause the most happiness, but that fades. I think that overall, self love causes the most happiness in a person. If you depend on someone for your happiness, it probably won't work, b/c things always happen. If this were true, then what about people who've been married for fifty years? I don't know. I think that being involved and confident and preoccupied also causes happiness.

Giving it to others.

the cause of happiness is being surrounded by the ones you dearly love and being able to do the things in life that you love doing. Examples: camping,hunting,boating,fishing,tennis,baseball,football :)

when i feel that i've fulfilled all my goals it feels great, and when mine and my boyfriend's relationship is going the way we both want it to go, when i'm with my friends and we're having a good time the way we used to, when i go to the theatre, and when i play video games with my sister because she's really happy then.
