Oh hey there! Yup, you guessed it again! It's almost time for another LIVE Getting Real!

This coming Wednesday we'll be chatting about what is that thing called happiness? How do you find it? Can you buy it?

 

Is it okay to not be happy? Is it okay not to want to be happy? (yes!)

 

Anyway, maybe I should leave SOME questions for the night Smiley Tongue

 

So yes, we'd love it if you came to join us on Wednesday- it should be an interesting chat! I'm keen to hear all of your perspectives and hopefully learn something new (I'm always learning new things from these chats Smiley Happy)

 

As always, make sure you check out those guidelines, and remember to contact support if at all you feel distressed or need to chat to someone about things that come up in this conversation.

 

Looking forward to seeing you there! Smiley Very Happy

@Macaria and @Lilly07 this could be something good for you to check out either on the night  (2nd of December at 7.30) or when you can, since from your posts it seems you have been struggling with happiness you may find it to helpful or comforting

Re: Live GR: What is happiness? 2nd of December, 7:30pm AEST

Here's a fun fact about happiness I read online today:

'The origin of the word "happiness" is from the Middle English "hap" which has to do with chance and possibility. As in "happenstance" or per-haps. So hap-iness was originally about the feeling of good fortune/getting lucky; the chance that something could or could not occur, and then it goes your way. Happiness is that specific feeling when something that could have gone horribly wrong goes amazing well.'

Cool! Ah maybe in a bit I won’t make it for 7

Re: Live GR: What is happiness? 2nd of December, 7:30pm AEST

I love your intro post @Lost_Space_Explorer5! So true about what you said, 'is it okay to not be happy'. 100%! I don't know why, but I've been thinking a lot lately how it's frustrating that happiness is seen as the 'default' emotion, and that anything else other than happy is bad. Totally not true, we have other feelings for a reason and they need to and deserve to be felt! 

Can't wait for the chats tonight! 

Re: Live GR: What is happiness? 2nd of December, 7:30pm AEST
