The Way to Happiness
When it comes to the topic of “happiness”, the opinions of people usually distinguish from each other, which give rise to the heated discussion among the public concerning the way to achieve happiness. As the saying goes, “Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them.” I personally agree that the ability to cope with complications in life is the right path of pursing happiness.
However, how could we deal with daily troubles or even struggles could generate serious concerns. From my perspective, to begin with individuals, optimism could perform an essential character. According to a survey conducted in certain institution in China, the percent of people with optimistic attitudes far out weighs the opposite in the aspects of overcoming dilemmas, thus having better opportunity to achieve the sense of happiness.
In addition, in terms of the society, certain institutions in China should launch relevant campaigns to strengthen the emphasis putting on the resolving of a problem, not the way trying to avoid it or even to neglect it. In spite of the fact that this may be a long run, these methods of coping with problems could definitely contribute to happiness in our consistent efforts.
