I think I am a happy person, because I have loving family, an interesting job and free time for myself. It is important to find some hobby. It makes people feel happier. Of course, there are economic problems in Ukraine, but still we need to be happy. Life is short.


I think that the cause of the unhappy of the Ukrainians affected by the lack of work and employment. May be the reason of unhappy people alone. It seems to me that in Ukraine has a lot of single people. People with their problems they forget about love. Just need to love and be happy. I am very happy, love me and I love and it gives me always a good and happy mood.


In my opinion people should cultivate the habit of noticing all the good things around us and to be grateful for everything. It will bring a lot of happiness and pleasure into our lives. Of course sometimes you need to make great efforts to think positively but it’s definitely worth it.
