It is true to say that you cannot be happy unless you make a choice to strive for happiness on a daily basis because happiness is something we learn. It is unfortunate that some people base their happiness on material possession like money, which according to (“Wellbeing,” 2017) money can bring happiness but only to a point. However, they also state that it is not about the money in one’s bank account, but one’s personal relationships that bring happiness. One has to strive and create healthy relationships with other people for them to experience happiness.
