Man if only those starving kids getting married off to strangers and raped would choose to be happy. I wouldn't' have to deal with those really off putting charity adverts on tv.

I would say yes, every time.

There are people who have almost nothing material to their name and yet they choose happiness.

You can always choose how you react to things. Being sad or frustrated is also a choice.

Not exactly if you have like, inherent depression, I mean, not to say you can't overcome it, but it makes being happy difficult.

No. Anyone who says it's a choice is stupid.

I don't think happiness is a choice.

I know everything is on your mind but you would have to work really hard to feel happiness when someone dear to you dies or when your stuff was stolen, or when you lose your home or when your kids have nothing to eat etc. Being optimistic is not the same as being happy. When confronted with a problem, I try to be optimistic and not let it bother me but it doesn't make me feel happy, it's more like resignation.

For me, happiness is like love. You can't help who you fall in love with and you can't help when to feel happy. Different people, different strokes.

It's not something you decide. In order for you to be happy, certain conditions have to be met. One can be optimistic all they want, if the circumstances are bad, it won't make you happy.

haikinka has a point there.
