• yep I think it's your choice no one can give you happiness just you feel it when you find something that pleases you!;D
  • I think I agree. We can choose to be happy, we can choose to be sad. Being happy is far easier than being sad as we don't really have to think about it. Something, or some one, doing or passing a remark can make us laugh thus getting our happy beads into gear. When we are happy and something a little bit sad happens, we can sympathise but, not neccessarily unhappy. As I am now getting confused I will end on a happy note. Good luck to any who read this.
  • Happiness is a state of mind. I believe we can set our mind to 'happiness' as its default setting. Its our choice. Others choose other default settings for their minds. Thats their freedom!
  • I think that happiness is a choice we make. We can affect our attitude by the "self talk" we give to ourselves. +3 Rosie!
  • Agree with Suby. It is a state of mind, but outside sources are always attacking our peace of mind and there is where the problem lies. We must keep grounded in our faith to overcome these obstacles. +5
  • Happiness is not a choice, its to do with your surroundings,your outlook on life and others around you.
  • I think it is an absolute Rosie. Only you can make yourself happy by the choices *you* yourself make.
  • I think it is a choice but it can be difficult if you don't know that you do have a choice. It seems some people enjoy being miserable too though.
  • The same event happens to two diff people. One person gets depressed, the other doesn't. It's how we decide to deal with life....happiness is a choice.
  • I think that being happy is a choice we make, but being happy is easier said than done. Sometimes it's hard to be happy, and even it we're not, we should at least find something to be thankful for. Our circumstances can make it difficult to be happy, and sometimes it takes a lot to control your emotions, and some people have a harder time with it than others. So while I do think being happy is a choice, I fully understand those who don't think it is and have a hard time with it.
  • I think that happiness is a choice. We can all depress ourselves in a short while after thinking constant negative thoughts but what's the benefit with that?
  • to being happy is our choice.
  • It is our choice but not everyone truly knows that.
  • You can't control everything that happens in your life, but you can try to be positive and find something to be happy about every day, no matter what.
