Denmark

 

Why is Denmark the happiest country?

So what’s the reason? The reason Danes live so happy is that they trust people they don’t know. Trust is the key of their happiness. They are able to change things in their life which they don’t like.
One of the other great things they are not judgmental ones, they don’t judge other people’s lives. Money is not as important in their life as compare to other most of the countries. They don’t believe in buying big houses and cars, they use their money in helping others.
Whereas, Burundi has some major problems like Political killings, Transitional justice, Prisoners release, Human right violations that’s why it stands on the least.

 

EPILOUGE

Countries like Denmark, Switzerland, Norway, etc. are giving us motivation, inspiration and setting benchmarks for our government and us who somewhere fail as a citizen and human being too. We should learn from these countries to make ourselves better.
