paralyzed they made have felt a sense of sadness at first when things they could do before the accident they are now unable to achieve. Things like talking, walking, or eating they were unable to perform. Over time with the use of physical therapy these people begin to manage and adjust in their new life. Soon these people forget about what they were able to do in the past and focus on the future and look forward to improvement. Their happiness has gone back to what it originally was. Both of these people went back to their “normal” level of happiness whether it was an extremely favorable event or something unfavorable. Happiness is found throughout our life in different ways, your view on what makes you happy may not be found to make someone else happy. Through internal factors we find a sense of peacefulness and feeling content. External factors at times will give a sense of being extremely happy, and while this does not always last it is still considered happiness. How we take both of these factors determines what we allow in our life and how we decide to proceed with things day to day. Happiness therefore is found from both internal and external factors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
