Living in a great nation (or having money) may not make you happy. In his book, Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari does a better job of providing data points to support this, than I can. (See Chapter One, sub-section, The Right to Happiness.)
What living in a great nation does, is to give you peace, opportunities and disposable income (especially if you have access to free healthcare, free education and credit). Those things remove the barriers to pursuing the things that can in fact, make you happy – progress, relationships etc.
You probably already know what makes you happy. What you need, is to focus on gaining the space and attaining the courage to pursue it.
And, if you’re one of those people who find happiness in things that are rare and out of your control, then you might live with unimaginable sorrow, until providence smiles on you.Living in a great nation (or having money) may not make you happy.
