Great article. Through out of our life, we are pursuing for happiness. I like the researches' finding: "Those who are suffering can experience meaningfulness even if life, or the season, isn't necessarily happy. In fact, the study found when people make meaningful choices, they might actually be less happy such as when someone sacrifices time or money for a greater cause like rearing a child or caring for disabled parents. But the researchers found that people who reported feeling less happy didn't feel their lives were less meaningful."
