WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE CHRONICALLY UNHAPPY?


Some people are continually miserable but is it always outside factors such as loss and misfortune which are to blame or are there other deep seated reasons? Do your research and discover the reasons why some people are chronically unhappy; also make note of the solutions. When your research is complete, write an essay on the topic.
