True happiness comes when we become givers not takers, when we give of ourselves to help others INCLUDING OUR WIVES. Linking happiness to fulfilling every life pleasure is more like bondage to self. The pleasure doesn't last. Take a vacation, for example. You have a great time exhausting yourself on vacation looking at museums, beaches, grave sites, etc. then when you get home it is just another memory. True happiness is spiritual happiness, knowing you've helped someone overcome depression, sadness, addiction, anxiety, etc., knowing you've made a difference in the world and in someone's life. Yes, happiness is limiting yourself (your ego) to help others. PERIOD.
