Hello everyone! I am a new member 🙂
Firstly congratulations to the administrator, your work is simply amazing and it helps really a lot of people, so thank you in advance for you response and corrections!
Anyway, I have already taken the IELTS test. I got 7.5 overall but unfortunately I have to to repeat it cause I got 6.5 in the writing task and it is not enough for what I need. Hence, I hope to find the way to improve my writing through this website. Please leave any comment, correction or feedback!
Here my essay:
Happiness is considered very important in life. Why is it difficult to define? What factors are important in achieving happiness?
Whether we were asked to choose one of the most difficult question, probably we would answer that \'what is happiness?\' might be the hardest one. Not only has its definition struggled philosophers and poets throughout centuries, prompting them to elaborate famous quotes which would have been recalled by the next generations, but even common people have always found themselves coping with this tricky interrogative.
One of the most harsh aspect which affects the definition of the term consists in its basically subjective feature. Indeed, not everyone might agree with a common definition of happiness and undoubtedly each individual would answer in a different way depending on his own preferences or attitudes.
On the other hand, there are some objective elements which might define happiness owing to the fact that everyone would consider them as fundamental in life. For instance, factors such as having good health, fancying job, getting on with family, enjoying spare time are essential components of a model life which should be considered happy.
However, it must be said that, unfortunately, we are nowadays overloaded by \'stereotypes of happiness\' laid out by modern society. For example, some kind of jobs are viewed as the best, whereas atypical activities are often denigrated. As a result, we are frequently prompt to accept instead of choosing what really make our happiness, thus we follow those clues unconsciously.
For these reasons, I strongly believe that in order to reach happiness in their lives, people should freely build it, choosing a job that they like, living in a place which they consider comfortable, hanging around with friends whom they fancy and so on. Hence, I would avoid generalizing the factors which are commonly considered important in achieving happiness. Though, I would better recommend people to feel themselves free to follow their own instinct and feelings; doing this they will automatically elect those factors which most make them happy.
