    This post made me think and remember that my aunt here says: happiness is to really enjoy what you have earn it.
    I agree but I also think happiness is not only that but is a state of mind that gives you peace so you enjoy every moment of what you DO, because YOU are alive.

    What is really happiness for you?

    That's a tough one. I guess happiness to me is embracing what makes you... you. For years I tried to ascend to various levels. I kept trying to become a better this, and a better that, all because that was the thing to do. It wasn't until recently that I realized I'm happy with who I am and how I live my life. That's happiness to me.

    Happiness to me is when everything works how it should and when you get everything to work how you want it to.

    I'm not sure [​IMG]

    I guess being myself and fighting injustice be it big or small (what I personally consider injustice anyway)...I'm sure if I thought about it for a while I'd come up with something completely different but that sounds ok. I can't always be myself and it sucks. Gotta put up that professional front for work and act like the stable good boy with family.

    Happiness?
    I really don't know...I haven't been 'happy' since I don't know when.
    It seems as though I don't know what 'happy' is.

    For the most part in my life, I'm usually let down and lonely-feelin'.
    A lot of shit has happened in the past two years, and I'm hating my home life and school isn't too fun, because I just transfered and don't have many friends there...

    I guess you could say I'm happy sometimes, but for the most part I'm not.
    GBAtemp makes me happy though [​IMG] For some reason I love to get on and read gaming news and talk to folks.
    Also, making others happy makes me happy...

    My teacher said life is much better after you're a teenager, let's hope so...

    'Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.' Is what my grandma once said to me, it only occurred to me how much truth is actually spoken in this. From that day forward i think i have achieved some form of happiness for myself.

    happiness for me is when i'm neck-deep in my work and seeing myself coast through without a hassle. and even if things don't go the way i wanted them to, as long as i have my girlfriend by my side, i'm sure nothing will go wrong.

    and if she leaves me, that's where my DS comes to play. [​IMG]

    Happiness for me is when I can make other people happy.
    I try to make everyone close to me feel appreciated and great, and that makes me happy. Because I am someone who needs other people around me, and feels lonely very easily. To know there are people who love me, is the greatest feeling of all (and I'm not talking about being popular or anything)

    To me happiness is...hmm... Well the first thing that came into my mind:
    Being able to make a difference in things. You might think it's strange but... I dunno, I was miserable when I didn't have enough self esteem to believe in myself.

    I want to change the way people live their lives in the sense of being able to help them. I guess that when I die, I want to be remembered for being an honest and good person, so when I do things I try to make sure that "its the right thing to do" because I don't want to have any regret, if possible.

    I hope this made any sense XD

    Edit:
    I guess happiness also comes from the feeling you get when you know you've done the right thing to do, like a smile from someone you just listened to or a hug from someone you helped to pass their maths test. I think that having no regret in life is what makes it possible to be happy, but being loved by others is like the source of happiness.

    How does one manage to be annoying and silent at the same time? That's quite a feat. [​IMG]

    And erm, happiness is loving and being loved, combined with a minimum of stress in your life. For me anyway.

    happiness is when i hear that on ds there will be games that are to new for my pc , and i can play them on ds (like call of duty ), and happiness is when i wait for title like ninja gaiden. happiness is also when i wait for my pre ordered acekard rpg (only two weeks [​IMG] ). I felt very happy also, when i managed to take off one part of my ds, to check L button and its spring (althought i've never would dissasamble all ds, cose it's too hard, but dissasemblin a part of it makes me happy in a sick fanboy way [​IMG] ).

    Happiness is being synchronized enough with your co-pilot girlfriend so that you can do superjumps in SMG!
    Best co-op mode in any game, evar.
