What Makes Me Happy

What makes me happy?

We all want to know how to be happy, don’t we? People are always trying to find something that would make them happy. Given the fact that no two people are alike, pursuits of happiness are very different from each other because each person perceives happiness in his or her own way. Certainly, everyone has something that makes him or her happy. Personally, there are three main things that make me happy at this point: family, love, and true friends.

First of all, my family makes me feel happy. My family is a safe harbor where I can be myself. It is not necessary for me to explain myself to my family because only they truly know who I am. I can be sure that even if someone lies to me or hurts me, my family will support me. What is more, caring about my family also makes me happy. For instance, when I buy a toy for my brother, it makes him happy; or when I give flowers to my mother, she kisses me tenderly. When I see my family healthy and smiling, my heart is filled with joy. In addition, I am happy when I loved by my family, and when they care about me. Quite often, no one can love you as much as your family. Only they will think and worry about you every second.

Love also makes me happy. This beautiful feeling is really hard to describe and explain. Personally, I do not know what love is, however, I can surely say that love is a wonderful feeling that I will always want to experience and share with others. Moreover, love helps us to discover a lot of new things. Recently, when I was in love with a girl, I discovered some new and good qualities that she ...

The Neglected One

“Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent”, Carl Gustavjung. The author of Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller would agree completely with Carl Gustavjung’s quote. Happy, Willy’s youngest son is never given the proper attention he needs. He is often neglected by Willy who shows attention to Biff considerably more. Willy never properly teaches Happy good morale values. Arthur Miller demonstrates the effect of the neglect on Happy as he characterizes him as a womanizer and a liar as he seeks the

    “Happiness” How do you judge if some one is happy, or has lived a happy life? Well some might say that this is judged by money, other would argue it is success, others may judge it on quality of life. The question is when do you judge a persons happiness, that day, that week, that month? According to the words of Solon all of these questions seem to have an answer. Solon was an Athenian who went off to learn as much as he could in the ten years that he had before he had to go back to Greece to see how his law system held up in Athens. On his journey across the ancient lands he came acro

    Compare And Contrast Two Love Poems

    The first poem I am going to study is "Remember" by Christina Rossetti. This is a Petrarchan sonnet, which means there are two quatrains then a sestet. The lines in the sestet look like they are all over the place with the rhymes but this because this style of sonnet was first written in Italian, and they had a lot more words which rhymed in their language. As this is a sonnet it has fourteen lines each with ten syllables. In this poem Rossetti is talking to her husband and asking that he remembers as she is about to die, but then she says she would rather he is happy and tells him that it
