I’m pretty happy, but I know people who are downright miserable. It’s just always bugged me to know that while we’ve all had really gross stuff happen to us in our lives, some people behave as though their trials and tribulations are the worst.
Happy mostly, sad sometimes, I get. Continuously dissatisfied and unhappy, I don’t. So what’s the deal? Why do their problems seem so much heavier for them to bear than for other people with the same challenges who regain their happiness more quickly?
It hurts to see unhappy people I care about suffering, so I embarked on a quest around the Web to learn if there was something that might be of help to them. I expected to find out that perhaps unhappy people do have greater disappointments and tragedies than I or other people I know have had.
I was surprised to find out I was wrong. What I found out, surprisingly, it’s not what happens to them in their lives that makes them chronically unhappy. It’s because of the habits that unhappy people keep that happy people don’t keep.
