    In this paper, subjective well-being aspects and the needs of overcoming barriers to conquer and to keep quality of life are seeing as a way of reaching states of satisfaction and happiness. The dimension of subjective well-being is respectively integrated with cognitive, affective and social aspects. It is explained the phenomena of the thought as an intermittent succession of images organized by the mind in the field of the memory; images that come from the environment and are registered in our memory thanks to the body’s experience of space and time. By this way perception allows the mind to process sensations into symbolic meanings. As a consequence, the signs found in the environment and the experiences changed by people are continuously built through the mind and by the memory. The change between people is then a change of subjective images organized by the mind, according to their life experience. It is a collaborative work through which partnerships are built. To see others, however, demands a reading of ‘the others’. How is that possible?
