Firstly let's look closer at the word you use
1.Happiness is different for each person because each of us have different difinition for that word. However dictionary said that to be happy is to be please then again pleased is different thing for different person.
2.Real - In case of feeling it can't not be scientific proven what is real or not.
3. Only - A very conditional word.

So you will be happy when shared , yes
But Happiness is only real when shared ?
not always ,definitely no.

If you hungry and you eat you will be pleased.
If you hungry and you eat with others you will be more pleased.
Guys, when you're full ,it is happiness too
Hungry is misery , The oposite of happy.

the different is /more/
doesn't affect the fact that you will be happy after you eat when you're starving.

Another example is when you go to the toilet , you don't have to share that happiness , do you?

So happiness could be more real when shared
but it doesn't need to be shared to be real happiness
so the statement is not 100 percent true.

Happiness is the truth. Happiness is loving and giving unconditionally. :)

This statement is absolutely true. Happiness can only happen when shared. I have a very simple example, when you are hungry and then you buy some foods for yourself then you eat it by yourself, you’ll feel full but you are not happy, aren’t you? Another case is when you eat it together, either with your family or your friends you are going to get happiness.
