Japanese can not be happy.
Many Japanese people don’t know how to be happy.
What would the elements we feel happy?
” health, Friends, lovers,married, have children, have money, have house etc……”
They have got all these elements, but they are invisible to happy.
I wonder why？
That is because many Japanese do not understand what they want .
If even though they got everything in the world, they would still be shouting “I want to be happy! I am unhappy!”
I will express it with another example.
A colleague always eats sweets at work.
Her lunch is Cup Ramen or sweet bread.
She has not taken enough nutrition. So, her body is complaining that I want moreＩwant to eat more!
She must consume the necessary nutrients. But she does not know what the necessary nutrients are.
Do you think that Japanese are easy to handle who are patient, polite and not complaining?
Because Japanese are tightly disciplined from childhood they grow like that. That is not a good meaning.
Adults deny children emotions and sensations and correct children as convenient for adults.
So Japanese prioritize social discipline and organizational requirements rather than their emotions and feelings. As a result, the Japanese lose sight of their heart.
The Japanese will not know what they want.
So it is difficult for Japanese people to be happy.
This is why the suicide rate in Japan is high.
