Q & A

Q:I do not consider myself grumpy, although some of my friends do. I do know I am not happy, but I do not even understand happiness. My parents certainly were not happy. I am an only child (an older brother died during childbirth) so I do not know if my siblings would have been happy or not. If I had a Tesla to drive, then I might be happy.... (Answer...)

Q: I fail to understand a comment you made when you said, “No one forces you to exhibit dysfunctional behaviors.” Then where do they come from? (Answer...)

Q: I have worked hard to own a good home and car. I have invested a lot of time and energy in my partner and two kids. I know some important and some famous individuals. My life seems sort of worthless, however, and I struggle to be happy. You seem very happy. What do you do? (Answer...)

Q. Because of the pandemic, we are limited to only one present each this holiday season and I am already depressed about that. What do I tell my kids? (Answer...)

Q: Could you give me a list of suggestions of things to do to help me raise my level of happiness? My doctor said I would likelier be happier and healthier if I “quit thinking about what you don’t have and start concentrating on what you do have.” That irritated the heck out of me, but I can see he might have a point. (Answer...)

Q: I read somewhere that happiness was linked with health and longevity. I cannot believe that. Or perhaps I do not want to believe that. Please tell me they are joking. (Answer...)

Q: I had a brutal and dysfunctional upbringing—below poverty line much of the time. Consequently, making money is of paramount importance and work trumps everything else. I love my kids want them to have everything I did not have, including a good-sized trust fund. Some of my friends have mentioned the kids “are spoiled” and that I am doing them no favors providing them with the level of almost whatever they want. Regretfully, I got livid and said some very unkind things. Tell me I am going down the right path here. I do love my kids. (Answer...)
