Happiness is an abstract concept for which there is no universal measuring stick. That’s why it’s hard to say if a person is happy or not. Fleeting moments of positive emotions that come from one-time events like enjoying a movie or meeting up with old friends make us happy. But how long do these feelings last?
A happy person is defined as one who has a general sense of well-being and contentment that comes from the knowledge that one’s life is worthwhile and meaningful. Good relationships and achievement of goals give our lives a sense of purpose and we have a positive state of mind.
