"Happy vs Happiness"?

I talked a friend today, she mentioned about a manger we both had wife. friend is an artist, so is that manager's wife. The manager's wife did a drawing that was in a frame shop. friend seen the drawing. It was done in black and white and very dark drawing. Everyone notice there was Dragons and people with very sad faces in the drawing. knowing the manager's wife, she is a very sad woman.

Poor thing, she' in very bad health, now on a medical retirement. She married a man, that married her for what she have. She's in her mid 60s and he's 48. So I can understand, why she's not happy! Happy in a temporary thing. Something good happen and you feel good, then it fades away. Short term, then after that, you might go back feel the was you was feeling before.

Now, happiness might be a longer term thing. You win the lottery, and you create happiness! Well the is gone. But! If a person that has cancer, and then they cancer free. They might do the things they always wanted do. Then they can say, they found happiness. I also talked another friend today. He and his wife is miserable, but they stay together, for their lifestyle together. Both incomes create a great lifestyle.

They happy to live this lifestyle but unhappy . I told him, for them to find happiness they might get a divorce! Maybe I'm not a good friend for saying that? But neither of them can't find happiness. being happy is a temporary thing, while happiness is more long term.

Was I wrong in what I said friend? In your opinion, what the difference between being "Happy vs Happiness'? I love your opinion on this subject!

I am one not to stay in a relationship if miserable and unhappy..Life is too short not to be happy and content..

One can never have enough JOY in their life...

A saying from Dr Phil I love is, “I’d rather be single and alone than miserable with you”. Staying constricts your chance of finding better. But, fear of the unknown can hold us back. There are worse things in life than dying alone.
Like wasting our few years unhappy.
I don’t think you advised wrongly.

I think happiness is knowing yourself and being content.

I know it's hard to find happiness is a bad marriage. Gladys Knight did a song in the 70s. Called "Neither one of us". I told a friend to listen they lyrics, for he and his wife is miserable!

So sad that they are so unhappy my friend. And it's good that you told them from the heart how you felt. Happiness is what I choose, and I hope you enjoying your retirement and having some new Happiness in your life..

Just your average every day run of the mill nana here!!!
