Personally, I always seem to be chasing happiness. It's elusive. Friendship isn't, so I take refuge in friends as much as I can. I feel lucky to be able to have the happiness of having one of those friends for my partner.
The friends part I knew wasn't going to be as relevant, tried to word it in such a way that it wasn't describing a universal symptom but one that comes up from time to time. I have some good friends but fucked if it isn't hard to hold onto them. I'm not sure if I quite nailed the workplace stuff, either.
I feel like you captured something, though, in a "if you have seven or more of these ten symptoms, you may have Discordianism" sort of way.
