Happiness, as the saying has it, is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them. In other words, people can never be happy if they focus on their difficulties and challenges. Simple as the remark may sound, it conveys a thought-provoking notion that happiness is a state of mind not an absence of problems.
First and foremost, it is well known that in order to be strong individual, one needs obstacles to develop one’s strength, just like butterflies which struggle to be free of their cocoon in order for their wings to become strong enouth to fly.
Furthermore, just because people have a disadvantaged childhood, it does not mean they cannot be successful. Steve Jobs is a case in point. He was abandoned by his biological parents and dropped out of university but still managed to change the world.
To conclude, as the saying goes “You cannot run away from your problems. There is not a place far enouth away.”Consequently, it is advisable for everyone to have a positive attitude toward their problems if they really want to be happy.
The Way to Happiness
When it comes to the topic of “happiness”, the opinions of people usually distinguish from each other, which gives 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 pursuing 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 outweighs 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.
