    What kind of choices do you think women make to be unhappy Eve?

    I know I'm happy, but there are a few things that I know would make me even happier.

    Because each person controls their own happiness. You can't and shouldn't depend on another person or circumstance to make you happy. Only you can make you happy. And only you can decide you're going to be unhappy. It's a choice.

    You (not specifically you, but people in general) can be happy with little, be content with a little, be miserable with a little. Too many times we think we need this or that or whatever to make us happy when the truth is, if we got that, we'd want something else to make us happy.

    I hear ya, and would love to discuss this more, but right now the thing that's going to make me REALLY happy is my head on my pillow, my eyes closed, and dreaming of_______!

    Because women have taken on the role of working woman in addition to still being the main taker-carer of the household. Too much stress not enough time. Just a guess.

    I work full-time and have 2 kids, and I"m a single mom, but I'd say I'm happier than 90% of the people I work with. I don't know why. Maybe, because I"m living the life that I CHOSE, and I like it.
