About Me

About me from the e-desk of Hans Hallanger

I started this website with the name ahappierman.com because I am happier.

Happier than I was. 

Life is still not perfect.  I have issues and problems.  I don't do nearly all the things I want to do.

But I am working toward it.

The happier part comes in because I have shed most of the beliefs I held that kept me in misery being married to a verbally abusive woman.

Thank you for spending some time on my website. Here is a little bit about me.

Why I am Qualified to Write About Being Happier

I used to be unhappy most of the time.  I was bored and frustrated as a child. I hated being told what to do and doing things I did not want to do as a teenager. 

I have always wanted to do what I wanted to do.

Still do.

I have been pushed around, bullied, berated, manipulated and guilt-ed into doing all kinds of things I did not want to do.

I was miserable in the last years of my marriage and eventually left the marriage 

I know the difference between unhappiness and happiness.

I choose to be happier and I will share with you what works for me.

Thank you for reading.
