  • I think its because we don't know how to be content.
    We are all told that more money is better, bigger house is better, hotter wife is better, bigger boat is better etc etc

    When we can't achieve these unrealistic thing we think we have failed in life.

  • ... because most people place their happiness in other peoples hands, instead of creating their own happiness. If you rely on other people to make you happy... then once they are gone , so is your happiness. Other people should just enrich your life, not be your entire life.

    Plus, to be happy you need to change what you are able to change , and accept what can't be changed.

    Being adaptable is paramount in order to be happy.

  • Lack of gratitude, and an inability to find joy in hard work and in serving others. So many people think only of themselves.

  • Because they don't learn to live for themselves/ no serious aim in life. Even if they have goal, they are too lazy to work for it.

    Another thing I noticed is that their life revolves around things that are either materialistic or things that shouldn't be the main center of their life.

    Running after the wrong things, and lack of knowledge makes one unhappy

  • I guess it's their own fault, people who are unhappy put themselves there or seem to stay there. We are all in control of our own lives, if you need to work hard to have happiness then do it, if you just lay back then don't expect happiness to be served to you on a silver platter.

  • Toxic societal & " media " brainwashing is one HUGE factor. If people thought more for themselves & attempted to see the POV of others & treated others as they themselves would like to be treated , what a massive difference that would make. Notice the " media " stirs up every division imaginable ( sex , race , age , social class , religion , you name it !! ) Also since the smartphone zombie apocalypse began , social skills have gone down the toilet !!

  • Because they've been indoctrinated by society and the system to think that happiness comes from material possessions and fleeting interpersonal relationships instead of finding it within themselves.

  • Dating is harder. Girls are super into low lifes, guys are into Instagram models. Guys can't get average girls becuse they want the world.

    So disconnected because of technology. Everyone is lonely.

    Everyone is broke, everything is so expensive... Gotta survive from what your parents have.

  • 1. Because narcissism, shallowness, and materialistic nature has taken over a lot of people today and everyone wants to compare themselves and strive for the celebrity golden life (aka Kim K. lifestyle). When they fail or see others having better lives than them they feel depressed.

    It's largely due to social media and people having a peek at other people's live.
