An interesting question that will definitely receive a variety of answers, because people have different beliefs. For example, I believe in destiny, so does that mean I believe that I will get the happiness that I am destined to have..? I don’t believe so. The situations and circumstances which we are in, create our happiness, in essence,
“we are the creators of our own happiness.”
Depending on someone else to create your happiness and make you happy is limiting, unless you are genuinely happy within yourself first and foremost. Very much like,
“You have to learn to love yourself, before anyone else can love you.”
Just to play, devil’s advocate. What about those with mental health issues? Depressive Disorder. Bi Polar Disorder, to name but a few. They can’t be creating their unhappiness can they? After all, they’re ill, they have a chemical imbalance and require various forms of therapy.
You can’t help how you feel when you’re suffering with depression, for example. You’re not choosing to be unhappy. Suddenly, it’s like a dark cloud descending on you, totally surrounding you. Wrapping itself tightly around you. You don’t choose it. It chooses you. That long dark tunnel, but with the right help, you can start walking that tunnel and lifting the clouds. It takes time, but in doing so, you’re choosing happiness then; surely?
Suddenly, the answers don’t seem quite as simple as I thought they would be…. But life isn’t simple is it? That’s a whole different subject. One thing I do know, is that we deserve to be happy and I wish you all the happiness that you desire and more.
Take care…… S💕
