How would you define happiness?
Happiness to me is the result of accomplishing my goals and objectives. So when I complete a task, no matter how small, I often reward myself with a brief moment of reflection to take in the feeling of happiness.
- objective (n): mục tiêu
- to accomplish something: hoàn thành gì đó
- take in (v + adv): chiêm nghiệm
What kinds of things make people in your country happy?
Just like people anywhere else, a roof over their heads, food on their tables are the things that make people happy and feel secure in Vietnam. If they are parents, seeing their children succeed in school and lives also help them to be happy.
- secure (adj): an toàn (cảm giác)
Do you think money can make people happy?
Well, let me put it this way. Money itself doesn’t bring joy. But, it’s an important tool for many essential things without which we may be desperate such as food, water, housing and clothing. I’d say that money doesn’t guarantee happiness but it can help us to satisfy our essential needs, which are the foundation of happiness.
- desperate (adj): tuyệt vọng
- guarantee (v): đảm bảo
- essential (adj): thiết yếu
Why do some people say happiness never lasts long?
I agree with them because happiness, as I said, is the very last result of the whole process of achieving something. Once you’ve done that, it’s your natural response to be back in the game again, and try to achieve more goals. The feeling of happiness doesn’t last long but it makes you more motivated and I think that’s a good thing.
- be back in the game: trở lại cuộc chơi, tiếp tục trải qua thử thách
