Rasha Kanakriya

How do you get the feeling of happiness and contentment?

Happiness at work is not impossible. How do we achieve it?

What does it mean to be happy?

Place, material aspects and relationships are sometimes set to a large extent as a standard for happiness, although we can make it ourselves, but a small percentage believe that happiness and optimism are from within the soul.

“A person’s lack of knowledge drives himself to seek happiness and obtain it from those around him.” With these words, Faten justified the reason for her search for years for someone who would make her enjoy a happy life, as she did. not realizing that she could achieve it on her own.

Faten went on a long journey to find the causes of joy, and she believed that it depended on the presence of a person, and when she found this person, she was eager not to lose him but the wind waved the opposite of what she wished for because of the many differences between them.

Faten described this period as full of concessions on her part, as well as a feeling of fear of losing that would cause her to lose the “key to her happiness”. The state of fear she went through when she thought he would disappear from her life made her believe that darkness and sadness would cloud her life forever.

Faten needed time to get out of this “dark” situation, as she described it, and fortunately for her, she had friends who supported her and explained to her how things were going around her, and the greatest honor was to her girlfriend, who told her, “Happiness does not depend on anyone … It is rather from within the individual and he is Who makes it for himself.

Her discovery of the true meaning of happiness changed her outlook on life and left her living in a state of comfort and tranquility, knowing that her happiness belonged to her and her hand.

Psychologist Dr. Ali Al-Ghaz shows that there are things in the human psyche that are latent and “static” and when stirred or provoked, it is important to have a motive for them, and many people, simply because of their absence. . of this motive, a lack of a sense of happiness.

Al-Ghazwa goes on to say that the feeling of happiness is a relative matter and differs according to the situations and influences that occur in the person, as he can feel the peak of happiness and joy if the external influence greatly affects him, the greater the consequences. of this influence multiplies and the circle of happiness expands.

The invasion explains that the person who connects his happiness with a person has few social relationships, becomes dependent and is closely related to this person.

And he goes on, so he has to change this idea and erase it from his life, as he has to give him advice and guidance that “life does not depend on one person.”

He points out that the realization of happiness is not a permanent matter, and most human happiness is short-lived and temporary. He explained that each person has goals, priorities and ambitions for which he works to achieve, and this can be by assisting someone who gives him joy more than anything, as things are relative and differ from person to person.

He points out that when a person reaches the stage of self-satisfaction, he achieves psychological stability and complete satisfaction with his life, and thinks positively.

According to a study entitled “The Pursuit of Happiness: Empirical Answers to Philosophical Questions” published in the International Journal of Psychology, “APS”, happiness is more than just having a good day in a good mood, but ‘ a state of feelings of well-being and contentment accompanied by a deep sense of meaning and contentment.

And 90% of those feelings depend on our genes and the way we see things. The level of life satisfaction is usually linked to positive emotions based on past, present and expected future experiences. The past can affect life satisfaction in the future by how it is expected and viewed in his mind.

For example, if you have experienced trauma in the past, you may think that your future will not be satisfactory because you are imagining the worst events based on your past experience.

Al-Ghazwa emphasizes that positive thinking is essential for happiness, thereby achieving solutions to many of the problems it may go through, and thus leading to a sense of happiness.

The invasion underscores the need to stay away from negative people; As a person, the positive people around him need to deal with, and read books that develop positive thinking as well as apply it, even if it is simple, so that he becomes familiar with this change and begins to become familiar with the feeling of success and happiness, though simple.

Al-Ghazwa points out that the power of happiness and contentment is related to the measure of the strength of a person’s faith in God, his trust in Him and his satisfaction with all that is divided in him.

The raid notes that there are many quotes that are harsh and appear to be negative, but the person who reads them carefully and understands their truth can give him an incentive, motive and load his positive energy into him to do the opposite. .

On the psychological level, the invasion shows that a person’s sense of happiness makes him see himself as successful, increases his respect for himself and others for him, increases his self-confidence, his thinking becomes more positive, and he sees himself full of energy. and try to pass it on to others.

He points out that man has many keys to happiness in his hand, the first of which is the “satisfaction” that is in him, since it is the first and last key, and note that satisfaction makes you attract happiness to yourself, and it does not conflict with the person who works and strives for himself, and continues to strive to achieve what joy dictates within him.
