I have always used only "ser" with the word feliz, however, I am seeing more and more estar + feliz.

This doesn't sound right to me.

Do you have an opinion on this? If so, please share. Gracias. smile

if you're saying, i'm a happy person, referring to your personality, then you use ser. if you are talking about your emotions, as in saying, i'm happy, you use estar.

Soy feliz. I am happy person everyday. Estoy feliz. I am happy at this moment.

I was taught in my Spanish class that you were always supposed to use ser with feliz rather than estar. My teacher was from Spain.
