A lot of people†will tell you that happiness is a choice.†But if that were so, wouldn’t the same†also†be true of other positive emotions?
If you’ve fallen out of love with your partner and are considering leaving them, couldn’t you just choose to love that person again?
If you discover you’ve chosen the wrong major in college and find it really boring, couldn’t you just choose to be fascinated by it and stick with it?
I think most of us would agree that this is†not realistic. So why would happiness be a choice?
