People say, “I’d be so happy if x happens” or “I would be devastated if y happened”. Actually we are very bad predicting both how you will feel and for how long (affective forecasting). People think winning the lottery will make them very happy for a long time. In fact people revert quickly to being just as happy as they were before but with more money and possessions. You might predict that losing your job would be devastating but bad experiences just like good ones do not make you lastingly happy or unhappy. Work on being happy now.
