Perhaps most of unhappiness comes from life’s uncertainties. If we have a sense of control by way of designing our lives based on the architecture we get for ourselves will give us sense of happiness by having had determined and identified certain points in life that seem important. The key is consistency. When you feel like running away from the reality that you are faced with, you realize that life becomes that escape at all times. We then condition ourselves to react or reflex to all of life’s circumstances in a fight-or-flight mode. This is definitely something I’m working on; like you said Sensei, life’s circumstances are not the defining factor of a person’s worth. These circumstances are simply opportunities to change the outcomes of life.
I am a third year undergraduate student, majoring in psychology; with the aim to enter graduate school to work towards a PhD in social psychology directly after my BA. This is truly my passion. I plan to delve into the field of positive psychology and to contribute to humanity by the way of research on topics such as happiness. By the golden standard of empirical research we can make a difference in the way we approach, and perceive, happiness.
