I had fun reading your post and the one from your friend. "Happy" is such a subjective term that it is almost impossible to define. I am not sure there really is anything as "happiness", I guess I am more of a Schopenhauer- ite. But, I am interested in your arguement that everyone is good at something and just needs to find that thing...hummm.... where do you get the idea that everyone is good at something? I'm just curious, I am reminded of Mozart and Solieri, didn't Solieri say he was the "patron saint of mediocrity" to imply that none of us are really good at anything, unless we are Mozart, and just to accept it?
It might be a fun exercise in the group for each of us to come in with our own definition of "happiness" or "love" or "self" and see where we agree or disagree. We would need tight facilitation. Do you remember a very old tv show called "Meeting of Minds" with Steve Allen? One day, we could each be a philosopher and discuss from that point of view.
Anyway, see you at the next meeting,
