It is difficult to be happy when you don't have food for the day or a place to sleep away from the cold. Living a safe and secure life may have something to do with the subject. We all more or less have our own concept of where to find happiness.
A pill or drug that make us float away from things that make our lives miserable may make us feel happy. Happiness, or well being, thus seem to have completely opposite aspects. The irresponsible getting away from it all, and another by having control over our lives and our health, with support, safety and security from our loved ones. Happiness and well being is never the absence of illness, the illusion of love or the lack of scary elements or events in our environment.
Although almost totally innate, real well being has to do with the real thing. Knowing who we are, having a purpose in life and being certain that we are getting wherever we want to go, regardless of age. The famous psychologist Martin Seligman describes it as having a 1) pleasant, 2) engaged or 3) a meaningful life. Amazingly, even by just deciding to improve those aspects, we improve our lives. By concentrating on things we like and are good at doing. Life can be greatly improved by not brooding over things out of reach, or on the ailments of a mistreated body.
A fanatic music fan may suffer from that which his $50000 music equipment doesn't have instead of enjoying the fantastic music it can reproduce. In the futil hope of getting help and support, we sometimes talk hours on end about how bad we feel about something we cannot change. About illnesses we have, have had or fear having in the future. Sorry, happiness and wellbeing is not out there to be found if you get more money than you need, a fancier car or a more beautiful wife or husband. It is in you and in that which you know. A good start is improving health. Something can always be done.
