True happiness wants us to embrace what is good
Happiness tells us that we believe something is good. Someone or something fills a need and reaffirms what is good within us. Happiness is an embracing emotion. Happiness motivates us to move forward to hold on to an experience.

Glee is the expression of happiness. Even glee, though, can be a form of emotional hijacking. Having a slice of terrific apple pie that our grandma made for us can make us happy. Eating the whole pie at one time is going to make us sick. The voice of moderation needs to interfere with unbridled glee.
