Last Friday, I attended an EPC class and we talked about whether money can buy happiness. As a human, we all have body, emotion and spirit. Happiness is kind of emotion or spirit for our life and the most precious thing to us. Without it, a man will feel that his misery fate has taken charge of him and the world is utterly dark and dreadful. The teacher asked us some questions about happy at first. We answered differently. My partner and I answered that happiness is a fate that we are glad to do many things and have confidence to do them well.

But how to be happy? Can money buy happiness? Obviously it can’t. In the class, we saw a sentence “Happiness is a state without any desires”. We discussed hearty about it and some of us agreed to it. They held that desires are power that can push us to keep working hard, so that we can have a better life, and then be happy. However,others did not think like that. They argued that desires come from comparison. When we do better than others and gain more than others, we just have a sense of satisfaction instead of happiness. Then, teacher asked us that if we have a lot of money, what we can do to gain happiness. Some students thought that giving money to poor people will make them happy. In the others’ opinions, using money to play together with friends and families will make them happy. In short, giving and sharing will bring happiness to us. Then, teacher showed us series of data of the happy career. These data show that barber, the happiest job, accounts for the largest proportion However, designer is the unhappiest one. The teacher said that human is a kind of social animal, so people will be happier to stay and talk with others especially in low pressure. In a word, helping others and communicating with others will make us happy.

In my opinion, Being happy is easy, because we have no reasons to be unhappy. When we meet some troubles in lives, we just try our best to overcome them without any hesitation. When I am sad, I would have a comfortable sleep. After a good sleep, I will feel much better. So I think being happy is easy for me.
