  • Jul 3 2013: Edwin, I appreciate and value your response. I asked, "are you a happy person and so what brings you happiness" and yes I said my happiness come from with. However, this is my truth.

    For me, if I allow outside factors to determine my happiness, then my happiness is short live and with short burst of emotions. For me, I prefer to experience prolonged, continuous flow of happiness, which for me comes from my connection to my true self.

    I believe I am a realist also, I may look at happiness differently than you, which I accept.
