Best Friends

This includes the experience of happiness or contentment for any period of time at any time in your life.  Of course being happy, at all happy---feeling good---comfortable with one's self and others---is something we all strive for in many ways and it is too often an elusive, but a wonderful human enterprise and experience.  But here, too---like love---if an adult's history is completely lacking in this experience, the prognosis is very serious.  Many experiences of contentment---and I don't mean resignation and feeling anesthetized or dead, I mean being happy, feeling good---are an indication of great security about one's self and much overall health.
