What do you think truue hapiness is and how do you achieve it.
I think many things can make you happy, but the true or pure one can only be achieved with yourself, not outside influences.
Other forms etc can be love, helping people etc. many things.

Happiness is a state of mind. What makes you happy can make someone else bitter.

I dont think there is a divide between the 'outside' and the 'inside'. I believe everything effects everything.
So eventhough happiness or any emotion is i guess a state of mind, we cannot shut ourselves off from what happens around us.

Is happiness contentment? Or is contentment closer to indifference?

when you experience it, you know it.
i don't think it is a state that you can achieve and maintain for a lifetime. perhaps it is contentment or "at peace with one self" that you are thinking of.

No One and No Thing can MAKE you happy. You either choose to be happy....or LET someone or something give you happiness, or you choose to allow lives negativities and problems to drag you down.

Happiness is a Choice....it's all about attitude.

But that's a risk we are all willing to take.

Yeah but there are certain situations where you can't be happy regardless of your attitude.

I have to disagree with that. No doubt there are situations which are seemingly impossible to allow a person happiness; but my experience is it ultimately boils down to you.

Happiness to me is havin everything you want. I'm a happy man but not as happy as I could be. I don't stress it tho cuz I ain't for settlin down right now. In a few more yrs I'll be focused on that. For now I can't really complain tho.
