The Happy Trap
Sudie Crouch
“Are you happy?” is a question that is often used to gauge where someone is in life. The various states of the person’s bank account, weight, or relationship status determines the answer. Sometimes, we even lie a little and say we are, even when we know we aren’t. When we have kids, we say all we want is for them to be happy. But happy is such a subjective term. What made me happy when I was 6 is totally different than what makes me happy at 46.
