The happiness I was referring too was more peace and contentment. Pleasure and fulfillment are fleeting, however the space to relax the mind in is very vast.

I didn't really understand just how unhappy I was, and how unhappy I was making those around me and and those who cared about me, until I started practicing Mahayana in earnest.

This insight changed everything for me. Or, rather, it opened up a new life for me.
