We are sad because we want to be more beautiful, we are sad because we don't find our soul mate, we are sad because we don't have a job or if we have it, we don't like it. Then we look around and see people who are sick, people who have lost a loved one, in different parts of the world we are fighting senseless wars. In our life we can't have everything. But we can learn to live well with the things we already have. We are too strict with ourselves. We judge ourselves by our physical appearance, for the goals not yet attained. We are here now. Each of us can improve the world, with little things. If we help others .... we forget our sadness, and perhaps the things we desire in the heart, will arrive in the meantime.

In my opinion the only thing that makes the one always happy is faith. Faith that makes him beleive whatsoever happens to him comes after the god well and it is for the purpose of giving the person what is better for him. As Allah (god) only knows what is better for people.

Our prophet Mohamed says "عَجَبًا لأمرِ المؤمنِ إِنَّ أمْرَه كُلَّهُ لهُ خَيرٌ وليسَ ذلكَ لأحَدٍ إلا للمُؤْمنِ إِنْ أصَابتهُ سَرَّاءُ شَكَرَ فكانتْ خَيرًا لهُ وإنْ أصَابتهُ ضَرَّاءُ صَبرَ فكانتْ خَيرًا لهُ"
That means "How wonderful is what the faithful one has, all what happens to him becomes good for him and that only for faithfuls, if he gets nice thing he thanks his god and that is good for him, and if he gets bad thing he is to be patient about it and that is also good for him"

I agree with Emanuela. What I understand from her post is that one needs to learn to be content and find happiness in what we are and what we have. We can keep trying for improvement/more. But feeling sad for not having X or Y thing is not wise.

She is also saying that if we try to help others then that will give us happiness and joy. So if we are in a position to help anyone, we should do it. That will also make us realise how much we have that others do not have.

What Emanuela introduced is linked with the sense of our life. A famous psychoanalyst(Viktor Frankl) said that we have to let  ourself go so that we able to help other people and find a sense of life.

The sense of emptiness or lack of something can be fight in this way.

Focus on being and not on appearances

It is always better to learn the skills of multiplying happiness, however, it may differ from person to person.
