Happiness, Above All Else? Really?

Most everyone would say what they want more than anything else is to be happy.  We’re convinced that the path to happiness means saying yes to ourselves.  Indulgence is the path to happiness, so to deny ourselves seems to go in the opposite direction of what will make us happy.  The right to pursue happiness seems to be in direct conflict with the call to deny.
