Happiness depends on person to person. What makes my wife happy doesn't necessarily make me happy. Yes money can buy you happiness. Purpose is more of a stress depending on context. Satisfaction comes and goes. Your Harvard lecture is full of shit man.
Now you can understand why many people believe in God even if you find it foolish.Which is why I never understood why people want to retire. I will never fully retire cause not only would I be bored, but yes I would have no purpose!
I do not think having a faith is foolish if that helps you in life, however I have a problem with religious people that don't understand having faith is just a belief, not factual in any way, shape, or form.Now you can understand why many people believe in God even if you find it foolish.
I actually hate when people try to "prove" God exists.I do not think having a faith is foolish if that helps you in life, however I have a problem with religious people that don't understand having faith is just a belief, not factual in any way, shape, or form.
Right, I am not an atheist cause I cannot prove there is no god, just like nobody can prove there is a god (sorry the book proves nothing), and we call that being agnostic.I actually hate when people try to "prove" God exists.
They don't understand that's why people view them as delusional. Like when you try to say the world is young and animals didn't evolve.
I agree.Which is why I never understood why people want to retire. I will never fully retire cause not only would I be bored, but yes I would have no purpose!
I disagree.Funny! One strives to make everyone else happy only to find themselves empty.
It’s a good point, what if they leave this world and your stuck trying to redefine your own happiness or plotting your own death.I hope all of your happiness is not dependent on other people.
A lot of times medical issues come because one slowed down.Happiness is having a purpose. Kids, wife, gf, gym, work, friends. Material items help but true happiness comes from within. Something many people lack these day do to the stressor of trying to make ends meet.
I don't know if I could ever fully retire. I don't want to slow down to much as I age. That's when most people die. When they sit at home and have no function. It's different if you have medical reasons of course.
Couldn't agree more. I might grumble a bit and make up a few curse words while I am working on a project, but when it's done and the wife and little's are smiling and laughing the sweat and headaches was all worth it 10 fold.Im happy when my wife and kids are happy. 😎
I told my wife that as soon as I can financially put in 1500 hrs a year and take a lay off the rest of it I am gna try and not for any reason other than I'll be about 60 hoping and want to have that extra time with my wife and kids to make up for time spent working 60+ hours a week .I agree.
From what I’ve experienced of the retired elderly community…. These people have no more purpose. And they aren’t thrilled about it. The ones who had no children or whose children don’t come visit literally want to die.
My grandfather at 79 years old worked everyday and looked like he was mid 50’s. Forced to retired (again) and went downhill from there. The last decade of his life was the opposite of what that man had been his entire life.
If I am forced to retire I will seek out something to do, hopefully.
Happiness isn’t being in a good mood or enjoying anything persay but I would argue happiness is purpose and reason and what that brings to you and your dearest loved ones. That’s where you’ll find satisfaction and fulfillment in your lives.
