The US Declaration of Independence says we have the right to pursue happiness. However, I don't think we should pursue happiness. We have to choose it. In order to do that, we may have to not take ourselves so seriously and not take everything as a personal affront.
Once we are willing to let go of grudges, resentments, and judgments, we may find that happiness is right there waiting for us to claim it.
Abraham Lincoln said: "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be." So rather than choosing to be upset and angry, we can choose to be at peace and happy.
