It’s something that you, consciously, make an effort to be. One can make you feel comfortable, pleased, delighted, content etc. But being happy is being in a state of acceptance with oneself – acceptance and acknowledgment of one’s own self – good, bad, flaws, strengths – the total you. When you accept yourself with everything that you have within you,…
