Do you know of anyone who is always happy? Ask everyone you know if they know anyone who says they're always happy. If someone says they are, get them to talk in this thread!! I think most people don't think anyone is always happy. I also think most people take comfort in this because they can say, "everyone has their ups and downs," when they're sad. In some ways this is comforting. But I would rather know that it's possible to be happy all the time. I sometimes feel like I have a default emotion or long term emotion. When I'm not doing anything, not still feeling a way about something that just happened, I'll feel an emotion that is somewhere between anxious and tired. But I used to feel happy in this between emotions state. I wouldn't say very happy, but happy. I think that this is the best you can do. All you need to do now is avoid the short term sadness and you'll never be sad. It's very hard to avoid all the short term sadness tho, because you don't have control over most of the world. I think that to move your default emotion around you need to have a long stretch or powerful short term emotion. I'm not only talking about events, but your state of mind. Anything that invokes emotion. What do you guys think about a default emotion or always being happy?
