True happiness comes from within. It's a state of being centred, balanced, and not thrown by external events, people and circumstances. It is the ability to withstand the storm and see what the greater picture is within that.
The reason why we, as humans, have such difficulty with tough situations is because we have a conscious mind that remembers every thing that caused us pain, stress or trauma, and so we carry the story around with us for the rest of our lives.
