@sleepysaint Tbh. Happiness is a strange state of emotion. Anybody could theoretically be happy no matter what they're enduring, including the scenario of not having a single penny. Because happiness is defined by how grateful you are for what you have; how accepting you are of your circumstances regardless of whether they're conventionally pleasant or not. An example, a man has always desired to own a certain car. Someone gifts it to them. They get sheerly happy because of how grateful they are for receiving this car and how content they are now. Now let's imagine someone's brain being wired in a way that they feel the same amount of gratefulness for everything they already possess in their life, cherishing everything they have so closely, without the need of there being some stimulus to make them happy like being gifted a brand new car. They already deem everything as a gift.
Theoretically speaking though...just theoretical. Human beings are rarely like this and most often always wish and yearn for things beyond their reach because it gives them a sense of purpose.
