Kris I ain’t mad at you and I am not sure why anyone would be 🤨. It is safe to assume that anyone who would like to dispute your rationale on this is not in the best of emotional health, which is telling and is basically to your point.
For many the way happiness is defined is lost in the dominant framing of just what happiness looks and feels like. Specifically from my own male perspective, my emotional good health doesn’t have to look like the typical dime piece (trophy wife) hanging on my arm nor is it the house, the car, the career and the bank account. It resonates with having a an emotionally positive outlook that satiate emotional health, which ultimately ends up being an attractive attribute to have.
