Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato believed that if people pursue a virtuous life, they will be truly happy. Professor Seligman, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, has further broken down the concept of authentic happiness. He says that genuine happiness is a combination of a pleasurable life, a life with passion and a meaningful life.
A pleasurable life is the feeling of having positive emotions such as happiness, gratitude, peace, desire, hope, pride, fun, inspiration, awe, and love, and a life with passion also focuses on immersion, passion, fascination, and healing, but a meaningful life is serving It contains something higher than itself.
So, people can achieve genuine happiness by seeking these three types of life.
