  • Good philosopy, as long as people don't try to convince themselves they're happy when deep down they're not, because of some issue that needs to be addressed. Sometimes saying you're happy as you are, is a way of avoiding the need to tackle an issue.

    Feelings of unhappiness can be a valuable 'call to action' (to use Anthony Robbins phrase). It's how you respond to feelings of unhappiness that counts.
