Requirements for happiness

Happiness is probably keeping what you already have, not having what you want. This shows that happiness and sadness are only separated by attitude. However, apart from Buddhists, hardly anyone can consistently follow this principle.

In my opinion, happiness has a few fundamental requirements. Firstly, happiness is related to money. Claiming that money is not a requirement for happiness is foolish. If you have no way to buy food, clothing, accommodation and other such daily necessities, you definitely won’t be able to have peace of mind. Money is important in this way.

Other requirements come from your relationships with other people. As human beings are social animals, friendship is an essential part of life. When you encounter difficulties, friends can help you deal with them. Even if you’re really going through hard times, a good friend can improve your spirits. So friendship is also a requirement for happiness.
