My musings on ‘Yes, I Stand by My Words, “Happiness Equals Love—Full Stop”’

Just read George’s Yes, I Stand by My Words, “Happiness Equals Love—Full Stop”. Agreed! I’ve always found myself being most Happy with my loved ones. Looking at the past International Happiness Day actions, I’ve realised many of the actions are with the people we love.

What does Happiness and love got to do with each other?  The interesting measures of cohesive home-life, overall soundness, coping style and object relations were all strongly related.  The winners in life were reportedly having the warmest childhoods, best overall soundness, the most mature coping styles and the best object relationships, consequently leading to more fulfilling lives – the good life.  This translates into higher incomes, higher occupational prestige, longevity, better health, and good relationships, among other things.

Love conquers all things; let us too surrender to Love. – Virgil
