Many sociological scholars (e.g. Derné 2009) report that well-being consists of an enduring sense of life satisfaction. This definition neglects the possibility that a person can experience well-being and a lack of well-being simultaneously, allowing for well-being to be more mixed. Fifteen students at SUNY Geneseo conducted two qualitative in-depth interviews each, discussing well-being and people’s experiences of well-being. After analysis of the data, I found that the simultaneous experience of well-being and a lack of well-being is possible.
