The pursuit of happiness is one of the basic elements of human existence. We all just want to be happy.
Every person does indeed deserve happiness, and what is more, happiness is contagious. The more happy people there are around, then even more people will find happiness.
We owe it ourselves to work on our own happiness and we owe it to society as well. Because our own happiness will help others, and inspire others to find happiness. If we are unhappy then we are likely making others unhappy as well (even if unintentionally), and it is extremely unlikely we are doing much to contribute to the happiness of others.
So why are so many people unhappy and what is the secret to happiness?
