A good life actually build from good relationships. Having a good relationship means we are connected to the people surrounding in the best quality of act and manner. Sometimes, fame, wealth & overachievement cannot give one's happiness, but good relationships will. This is because humans just like magnet, attracting each other, stick on one another & living together forever.

Robert Waldinger says that the key to happiness lies in the relationships that we have in our lives. In my opinion, the first good relationship that we must first establish is the relationship between man and God that is Allah, the Most Merciful and Loving. Then every other relationships will simply fall into place.

It is nature of every peraon to seek happiness, either through materials or spiritual. While it is undeniable that having good relationship with people around us give us a happy life, ws also should remember that nobody will live forever. People come and go. But, as a Muslim, what kind of happiness could be greater than that of someone who humbles himself to God, worship Him, strives for His pleasure? In conclusion, happiness is not only depend on how good we are with people, but also with our own Creator.

A good life is a life full with happiness and love which can be achieved through good relationship. Islam taught us to have good relationships with three elements; the God, human being, and the world. Just observe these things according to the predetermined manner, a good life we can have.

Dear madam,
I agree with Roberts Waldinger's 75 years research findings that the quality of relationships makes us healthy. Once, a cancer patient was predicted to die soon had been survived 7 years later with a child from his marriage. Although we are not lifelong but our affections make a good life

That's is what i think and want to share with you, Anis Hamizah

Have a good life! Easier said than done. How many of us are really into it? Different people may have their own understanding of having a good life. Some might focusing on wealth, career, health, or family. As time passes by, they would realize that life is not about material needs only. That is the conclusion of 75 years study shared by Mr Robert in his talk. We are not the only human in this world. We have family, friends and neighbours. By having a good and close relationship with them will make us happy and blessed in future.

A good life is a fulfilled life. A fulfilled life is a life surrounded by those you love, who loves you in return. These people accepts you regardless of who you are. Living live to its fullest is meaningful enough with them. That is my definition of a good life.
