I believe that well being comes from a variety of things in ones life. I think that most of it is ones positivity about their own life and how they view it. If people were to believe that their life is good then they would be more likely to keep positive through the harder times that they have to endure. I believe that well being starts within yourself and how happy you strive to be.
However. I also believe that someones surrounding can contribute their well being. If someone surrounds themselves with others who are concerned about their well being then things might turn out better and they might be put in more positive situations that will make them happy. Environment is a key component towards someones well being because their atmosphere creates influences that will put them in positive or negative situations that may help or hurt their well being.
