In the short story, “Gooseberries,” by Anton Chekhov we explore a story told by Ivan Ivanovitch and the way he conveys happiness is not typically the way a majority of people would view it. He would convey it as no point in pursuing and feeling happiness. He explains that to obtain happiness someone must be unhappy and carry the burden of it. It relates to ways one should live because one should always be aware of unhappiness coming their way while being happy. It is always short-lived and temporary. I agree with this because it allows people to not be vulnerable to these moments and isn’t as rough when the unhappiness moments come through.
