Does being a parent really make you happy? — Chuck B Philosophy

I have had an on and off relationship with happiness. Like a man dating a woman that he expects will be unfaithful and break his heart. A man in that situation can never invest fully in the relationship because he does not trust the other. Like that man, I could never fully invest in happiness because I did not believe in happiness.
