This article was about how different kids have different feelings as shown by the happiness survey.

Nearly two thirds of kids say that they feel happy lots of the time, and the things most likely to make them feel that way are your family, friends, being outside in nature, and playing sport. But the survey also shows that feeling down is pretty common too. About three out of four kids feel sad, scared or worried at least some of the time, and the biggest thing bothering them is the future.They also often worry about issues with friends and family, and bullying. In addition almost two thirds of kids aged 8 to 12 worry about their body, and about a quarter would like to change it.There are ways you can get over being sad. One of the easiest is having a chat with a friend or family member. Girls are more likely than boys to talk to their friends.

I understand that if this is you, it’s worth trying to speak up, because the numbers tell us that if you do you’re likely to be happier. I  also understand that we all have different feelings that we should all respect.

Is there another big component that people who feel sad go through?
