When we are very attached to a person, any of that person’s actions may at times make us happy, while at other times they might make us sad. The possibility of our feeling pain is far greater than that of experiencing happiness. After the relationship between two people breaks apart, and to the extent that they then become like strangers to each other, such attachment disappears and they are brought back to a state of peacefulness. On the other hand, there are many other things that we never seem to care about, and it is those very things that would probably bring us more happiness.
