The philosopher Alain de Botton and author of “The author of The Architecture of Happiness” says:
“Happiness is normally seen as the outcome of success in certain areas: in love, work, friendships, your environment and the feeling that your society is moving in roughly the right direction.
But if we drill beneath that, what is it about love that is supposed to be so happiness-inducing? I think it’s partly about being understood, for the things that you feel the need to be understood, and that is quite tricky to understand.
Someone might say to you: I love you’, and you might ask, What for?’ So you want to be loved for the things about you that you think are most significant, important and perhaps slightly unrecognised. And similarly there’s a mutual pleasure in doing that for somebody else.”
