1734 Words 7 Pages
Happiness, expressed in an everyday sense, is a mental or a psychological state of being sound and well defined by positive energy or joy. One may feel happy in a different manner, and due to a different reason than another. For example, one may be happy to win a million dollar lottery, whereas another may be happy to just to be alive. It is subjective when it comes to interpreting happiness as it differs with every individual. As a matter of fact, happiness compels an individual to embrace their passion and do what they truly believe in. However, sometimes while on the path of pursuing happiness, one may be forced to compromise and go against what he or she wants or believes in. This idea of compromising happiness has been depicted by Tim O’Brien in the short story On the Rainy River.
