Happiness is the ultimate currency

“Struggles and hardships and challenges are a necessary component of an emotionally rich life; there are no easy shortcuts to happiness” (Ben-Shahar 2007, p.89).

“Depriving ourselves of the permission to experience any or all of these emotions [sadness, anxiety, joy, happiness] makes us underprivileged in the ultimate currency” (Ben-Shahar 2007, p. 91).
