You have the right to the pursuit of happiness, but there is no automatic right to happiness itself. Not everyone’s pursuit is a success.

I have found happiness as an unsought-for byproduct of helping others, so maybe that is the best advice I can give you: try to do good in the World, and try to leave every situation a little better for your presence there.

Otherwise you might have to settle for comfortable!
