does happiness in love = happiness in life?
Posted 10/7/15
What do you think?

I think yes.

Here's a little anecdote, it may sound like it came from a romcom, but it's totally true.
So my boss acts super nice on some days... this correlates with his date going well. When the dates didn't go well (the woman says things like, "Can we just be friends"), he becomes really grumpy and cranky in the workplace.

This is at least my observations.

of course (if the happiness is real) I think that love is not an acievement though but I think it can indeed bring real happiness. I think it's strange how people can be so self aware

how people (such as your boss) can be so concerned with himself and take his bad mood out on others even when it's nobody else's problem

No, but it certainly helps you get through the hard times.

I didn't mean it like that.

I think it was just one of those things where when you're in a bad mood, you're more likely to lose your patience etc. Like not having enough sleep can make someone not seem their usual self sort of thing.

Yes and no. On the one hand, if you are happy in love - then inherently there will be more joy in your life. You will have that level of happiness right off the bat. On the other hand, happiness in love does not mean there will be no troubles or challenges in life. There will still be struggles every couple will go through. Doing so together makes it more of a team effort and can be easier, but doesn't mean it will be a cakewalk. My Mrs and I have been married for over 8 years now - our marriage is solid & happy, but our life isn't always happy & roses. Sleepness nights due to cranky babies happen; irritations from work happen; daily irritations due to problems with our house happen; etc.

So...yes and no.

Love can get through anything!

it's knowing that you're not your mistakes. knowing that expectations don't do you many favors. so, it depends on your overall disposition and you can pretty much apply those same things/qualities that make you happily in love, happy in life.

tbh.. i'm not replying seriously and just saying what's pleasing to hear lol. frankly, when you're shitty to others, 9/10 times it doesn't really come back to bite you in the ass especially if you have nothing to lose. so, having no close relations/attachments can also mean you're consequently pretty happy in life.

Thanks. Just trying to be real

Life is real, messy, and imperfect. So is marriage. As an older married dude with 4 kids, I should know

I can't answer to this , I have never been in love

I assume you mean in a relationship with another, if that's the case to an extent, since it will add to your overall happiness. Also on the inverse loving yourself would also do that. However I don't think one can always be happy unless you force it upon yourself and even then I would describe that as a pseudo-happiness.
