Question: Have you found true happiness!? !?
Have you realized at one point in your life that you were not happy and took steps to change it!? Did you truly find the happiness you knew you should have!? I'm 48, retired military, have a college degree but am not truly happy!. I feel I'm not working in a field I truly want, not living where I truly want, or not surrounded by things I truly want!. Am I only dreaming thinking happiness is out there!? Please, if you have been where I am and took measures to change your life around and found happiness, will you share it with me!? I'm not interested in hearing about happiness is found within, or that you met your soul mate, etc!.!.!.I would like to hear of stories where you took charge, made a career move, residential move, or whatever else!.!.!.thank youWww@QuestionHome@Com

I made a change in the way I looked at life!.

I found that True Happiness happens whenever we are not judging anything!.

Any time that you are not judging you are happy!.

The moment that you start judging, you find something to be unhappy about!.

You may not like this answer but It really is that simple!.

After 60 years of chasing my tail I finally realized that a career move, residential move or any other external nonsense that I could think of was not going to make a bit of difference!. If I could not be happy where i was, with the people I was with a change in geography was not going to make any difference!.

At some point we all are faced with this simple truth!. The amount of time that we avoid dealing with the roots of the problem will be the axact amount of time that we remaim confounded by it!.

Well maybe you're wants and expectations for life are too high!. We can't always get what we want, or we won't appreciate what we have!. If you have 1 best friend you spend more time with them, and are closer, but if you have 6 best friends some will be left out, and you won't be close to all of them!. Do you see my point!? Maybe you should try finding true happiness in optimism and appreciate everything you have!.
Hey, at least you have a college degree and a home! Think of the good side and stop focusing on the bad!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

yes but its a long boring story!. If something makes you unhappy, stop it!. Career!? What did you want to do when you were three years old!. Personally I wanted to be a farmer and boring as that is to me it is heaven!. I wasted years of my life doing what was expected rather than what was right!. I think our subconcsious mind knows what we should do and the only way we become happy is when we listen to it!. Don't waste your time!. Just act!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

No, I have not!. I've loved and lost!. I've had jobs previously that I liked but have lost through attrition or having been rifted; I have a daughter and grandson--who live far away and I rarely ever get to see!. So, no, I am not truly happy and don't ever expect to be!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It's pretty difficult to be happy when the country you have loved is being trashed and destroyed by left wing liberal perverts!.

Don H gave a quality answer!. However I find it too difficult to overlook what is happening to America!. My ancestors came over on the Mayflower, and my roots are in the freedom of this nation!. The present administration is worse than the enemy was in 1776!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I've found contentment in what I have rather than looking for happiness with things I cant haveWww@QuestionHome@Com
