section 4

In my previous post, I talked about my definition of love along
with Plato’s and Aristotle’s views.
  But
what about what makes a person happy? William James says, “Happiness is created
as a result of our being active participants in the game of life.” He has also
said, “ Believe that life is worth living, and your very belief will help
create the fact.” Happiness is having frequent positive emotions and like
William James said, believe that life is worth living. I know I will not be
happy constantly but knowing that having self love like I talked about in the
previous post makes me happy. Also being close with my family and friends
brings happiness in knowing that I’m not alone in whatever I do. Doing events
with my sorority sisters, going on cruises, and working at the animal shelter
are things that makes me happy because they are things I like doing. Happiness
isn’t something that you just have; it is what you make it. You can choose
whether to be happy or not. Happiness can also come from doing things that you
are dedicated to and making connections that mean something to you. In the end,
happiness is up to you and what you make it. Its something you have control
over, if you aren’t happy then you can change it. You can change the environment
you’re in or the people you are around.
