Unsafe Containers- Feeling Happiness Overloaded

Which emotion(s) — joy, envy, rage, pity, or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?

Happiness is the hardest to contain for me, when I am happy I found myself overexcited, overenergized, and it’s bursting from all over my body. I feel like everybody should feel my happiness, I will smile to strangers (I don’t usually smile to strangers, I prefer having a flat-monotonous face while walking alone), I will greet everyone I know with their name, and my eyes would bulge out like a person with hyperthyroid.

Happiness is perhaps the best emotion human kind able to experience, there’s simply no subtitute for it, I wouldn’t trade one day happiness with one hundred buck, neither for three hundred buck, but. I would probably trade it for one thousand buck (being rational, eh?).

I know when I’m happy, the world look bright, positive energy around, and people seem nicer. And happiness itself is contagious, have you ever see someone laughing that you start to laugh as well without knowing why? Well, I had done it many times before. The same goes for happiness, cultivating happiness each day is important in keeping moral in high level, and gratitude is the easiest way to be happy.

Why should we be happy? Well, why we shouldn’t?
