ASK A QUESTION Ser vs. estar with the word feliz
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.
Soy feliz - I am a happy person. Estoy feliz - I feel happy.
Soy (una persona) feliz > Soy feliz.
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.
