    You can go in as depth as you want. Make a list or type a paragraph or only give a few words. I don't care, just tell me what makes you happy.


    And as a bonus. Describe what happiness is? Or maybe this is the same question, I don't know.




    Serious answers only.

    Mainly animals make me happy nowadays, seeing them or playing with them. Simple things like talking to people I like are nice as well, something to keep the mind off of negativity and the likes.

    I also have a deep-seated selfish desire for a stable life and a family, not sure why it's something I crave so much maybe due to the poor conditions with my own family growing up, but regardless it's something that would bring immense happiness to me one day.

    There's probably other things that give some resemblance of happiness though most are just things that make the mind wander enough to think it's happy when in actuality it isn't.

    Now what is happiness, well the definitions are well known, to me happiness comes with a sense of stability, when your desires are fulfilled enough and you're surrounded by one or more individuals who are there with you through thick and thin. When there's so much positivity in your day to day that the negative emotions or negative impacts that happen throughout life cannot crumble you, cannot cause your world to come crashing down and cannot bring you down to their/its level of negativity.

    people

    and very few of them

    there are countless things in life that give me some degree of pleasure but i've concluded through experience that i only feel something close to true happiness when spending time with those special few ppl that make the magic happen <3

    Being in a group of close friends makes me happy. As I've gotten older, I've gotten better at disguising my shyness, but I still don't enjoy the process of getting to know people. So being with people who you love and all have a lot of shared memories with together-well yeah it's great.

    I love solitude when travelling. One of my happiest vacations was when I went to Rome by myself and got to do whatever I wanted for five days. I'm a huge Ancient Rome nerd, so actually getting to explore it by myself was wtf levels of happiness for me. But in general, I like to travel alone. I don't really eat on vacation, and I like to walk everywhere and learn about the history of where I am. At the risk of sounding like a special snowflake lmao, I'd say that most of my friends have the opposite style of travelling; they prefer to try a ton of new restaurants and see a museum or two (okay to be fair to them, their problem is mostly that I eat too little on vacation). I also journal when I travel, so I find it's always a time of introspection and finding inner peace for me.

    I'd describe my base temperament as fairly easygoing and happy in the first place anyway, so it doesn't take much for me to be happy. And I have a reallllly solid network of friends/a great support system. I find happiness in calmness, stability, and predictability...I want to do exciting things and learn about the world, but I want to do it on my terms. I like having a warm bed to come home to and friends to text when something's wrong. From there I feel comfortable doing less predictable things.

    Working on an art project late into the night while listening to a history audiobook. Cuddling my cats. That moment when you're at a good restaurant and your meal arrives. A beautiful, sunny day. Binge-watching a show I'm really excited about. Laughing at something hilarious with loved ones.

    The moment of utter pure laughter, with the people you love and care for that each of you are as weird as the other and you realize how much you care for these people how much you love them when you hear their laughter and when you realize they won't judge you, criticize you or hate on you for your laughter.

    My fiance. Good food, great shows, good music and just a beautiful sunny day makes me happy. Also when new make up arrives from online shop.

    Going to the gym and checking new results makes me happy too.

    Oh and ice cream. I love ice cream

    especially ice cream with brownie

    Real answer.

    Seeing people happy, makes me happy. But I don't believe that people should be happy for too long. Eventually my happiness for them, will turn to annoyance. So once I feel that somebody has been riding their happy train, too long, it makes me happy when something comes along and knocks them down a peg.

    Revenge makes me happy.

    Cutting off shitty drivers.

    Creating drama.

    Telling shitty jokes to servers, and watch them have to fake laugh.

    Music

    Ordering something online, and then waiting for it, bring me more happiness than actually getting it.

    And in the great words of RugerRell..."styling on people" also makes me happy.

    anime and manga. tv shows. adventures and nice landscapes.

    but if i had to choose ONE thing that would truly make me happy, it'd be money. I don't need alot, just enough to live in a decent house and provide for kids while i can do what i want. I guess 3mil would be enough for me to not work (I'd try to make smart investments and live a humble life, buying cheap clothes/food). This way I can spend the majority of my life doing the things i like as described above.

    Family, friends, sports, playing guitar/piano, driving, traveling, sex, gfx, video games, masterpiece animu and mangos, my job, animals, when the world is in peace (even for few hours only)..

    Aside from that it's nostalgia. I love listening to ost's to remember the awesoem times of my childhood.
