What is Personal Happiness

Personal Happiness is derived from an accumulated range of positive emotions such as joy, interests, and pride. It is the relationship with satisfaction, pleasure, and appreciation of the current situation and accomplishments. It is wrong to state that an individual is a happy person since this assumes that she or he is naturally happy or positive emotions occur more frequently than negative emotions.

Experience of Personal Happiness

More frequently, positive emotions are perceived at same levels by individuals while negative emotions could be experienced and processed differently by others. The experience of negative emotions depends on the processing process of the individual. Thus, negative emotions can be expressed as an opportunity to start a developmental process in order to learn, or it can be experienced as a setback which will probably occur again.

The question is when these negative emotions occur and how this can be controlled to transform its negativity into positivity. This process depends on the level of acceptance of the individual. People are driven by goals and expectations, but when the accomplishments do not meet the expectation, acceptance is a critical factor in the level of happiness. As human beings, we have the ability to control our emotions, and for this reason, we can decide when we are satisfied.

The main question is how to control our emotions, and how individuals can be happier. How can opportunities be identified from negative emotions? These are the question that should be considered to live happier and share happiness with others.
