I would go further - happiness is not despite sorrow or hurt, but as much because of it. You cannot have white without their existing black - so you cannot have happiness in a world unless its opposite can also exist.Interestingly, it often seems that people in some of the most deprived areas of the world can display the greatest happiness, and it is often we in the world who seem to have most that seem to find the least happiness.
That's probably because we're all spoilt complacent riff-raff who forget to realise how lucky we really are !
i find if I'm happy and smiling then i can make everyone else around me happy which then makes me Happy so we all end up being happy.Its good to be happy.

Personally, sometimes I find it very difficult to be happy when I see so many people suffering and unhappy. I see that does no good, but its difficult to control.
I am sure there is suffering in this world on such a scale that the people receiving it have never experienced joy !!...and I am sure there are people who have never experienced true sorrow and live in eternal joy !
