What is it actually? Can it be defined as one particular thing in our lives? I think not. It varies from person to person, from moments of fortunate events to the well-being of one. According to Wikipedia.com, "pleasure or joy is the emotional state of being happy. The definition of happiness is one of the greatest philosophical quandaries. Proposed definitions include freedom from want and distress, consciousness of the good order of things, assurance of one's place in the universe or society, inner peace, and so forth..." In the upcoming paragraphs, I will be defining this conundrum we refer to as happiness.

Happiness is the acceptation of one into society. This is shown in our western society on a daily and frequent basis. People only buy a certain type of clothes to feel accepted in our society. The clothes is not superior in any way over other things within our society, it's just something everyone can relate to.

For example, in our current society males wear shirts which look like skirts on them and walk with a limp was if they have osteoporosis. It's just things like that, that we do to try to fit in with everyone else. If we fit in, we are considered to be happy.
