What do you want in life? Ratliff said he believes everyone, despite different ideas of the definition, want to be happy. But how do we find happiness?
"I've known some happy people in my life. I've had great moments of happiness myself. Some people are happy most of the time, but I doubt anyone is perfectly happy all of the time."
Ratliff said the answer to our happiness is, at the core, in our relationships.
If happiness comes from our relationships, why do we damage them?
"I propose when we do, it's because we forget happiness doesn't necessarily come from winning, wealth or prestige. Consider the relationships."
