Rabbi Nachman teaches,
It is a great mitzvah to be happy always!
Make every effort to maintain a happy, positive outlook at all times. It is a natural human tendency to become discouraged and depressed because of the hard sh i ps of life: everyone has their full share of suffering. That is why you must force yourself to be happy at all times. Use every possible way to bring yourself to joy, even by joking or acting a little crazy!
Let’s pray for Israel! May we have peace very soon!
