Is it better to find happiness by any means, or to try to find it within the confines of social “norms”?

Outside of social norms includes taboos, legality issues, and/or harm to other people.

Happiness is not a thing to be got, found or obtained;
it is realization, or more precisely, self-realization.
All kings and beggars can be happy, when they know
themselves, are themselves, under the light of their
true knowledge.
I already answered on EP many questions about how
to know oneself and how to be oneself.

Baha’u’llah says:

“Moreover We counsel them to observe justice, equity, honesty, piety and that whereby both the Word of God and their own station will be exalted amongst men. Verily I am the One Who exhorteth with justice. Unto this beareth witness He from Whose Pen rivers of mercy have flowed and from Whose utterance fountains of living waters have streamed forth unto all created things. Immeasurably exalted is this boundless grace; immensely blessed is this resplendent favour.” (Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 77)


Be your happy self
As children of the Father
Who cares for them all
