You can choose to be happy, but that doesn't make it so. Everyone WANTS to be happy...that's a big "no duh!" We all Strive to be happy...but that isn't always the end result. There are these things called LIFE and CIRCUMSTANCE...these two things greatly affect how much or little happiness you will experience...or whether you will experience happiness at all.

It is oversimplifying things to say "we can choose to be happy." The person that thought this up obviously has not experienced all the worst things that life has to offer. Try living in poverty in Bangladesh, while being beaten by your parents, then your spouse...then losing your children to malnourishment and disease.

I am not normally negative, but this article really takes oversimplifying things to a whole new level!

True contentment comes from the knowledge of your own self-worth. This "knowledge" is woven into the fabric of our souls by our Creator. Life happens....chaos, illness, poverty, addictions, etc and we lose ourselves in negativity, self, ego..To tap into our joy, we must look
to our divinity. We were Created for love, by love, and because of love. This love will flourish when you recognize your divinity, your goodness, your raison d' être. Look for the good in everyone and everything and you will see a sense of happiness.

This time I find myself agreeing with Jane B.We'd all be happy and rich if choice were all it took.

Happiness is an inside job and a choice you can always make in deciding to change your outlook on life. Otherwise you may be a candidate for medication and treatment.
