Happiness and Happenstance

I reread this post. I came across your comment here and I realized I shouldn't have cheered you on in your happiness is derived from happenstance as though I agreed with you. If I agreed with you, I shouldn't have. I don't remember and I'm not looking at what I wrote and I didn't look at it before writing this comment. (I should have read it, though, lol.) Anyway. Here's what I think:

happy: happy
-ness: the essense or quality of

happy + -ness: the quality of being happy.

Simple as that.

On to the word happenstance. That's a word, its (own) word:

happen: to occur
-stance: chance

happen + -stance: chance to occur

Conclusion: Happiness (i, a substitute for y connecting word parts) doesn't derive from happenchance.
