Elif Zeynep OzekiciEnglish 1 1/24/2017 Views on happy life “The Letter from Birmingham Jail” by Martin Luther King and “The Psychology of Subjective Well-Being” by Ed Diener both has different opinions and ways for describing defining and measuring happiness to lead a healthy or good life. Moreover there are some differences in what these authors say about gaining happiness that might eventually lead to living a good life. Thus it is more than clear that happiness is the sole and ultimate way to leading a good life and both assert that a person can get happiness when he or she has immense satisfaction in life. However the things that help to gain this satisfaction and lead to happiness are different according to what these authors have found out through their studies and methods. According to King where the world is just there is happiness. Justice makes people feel involved the presence of negative and positive emotions in people (both men and women). An achievement of an absence of conflicting emotions such as anger and fear is this way. The authors deem satisfaction an important factor to lead a real life which is why the specific aspects have been outlined from all aspects cultural and social too. Satisfaction is the best way to get happiness. Happiness is what matters a lot for the well-being of human. It is of great importance to be happy and people should restore happiness to those without peace. Environment and personality significantly affect peoples’ state. Positive or negative views that people have of their lives are significant regarding happiness. Works Cited Cedars S.R.
