Ser feliz or estar feliz

Ser feliz or estar feliz

Hi,

I would have thought that as feliz is a transient feeling, estar would be apprpriate.  However, in the example above, ser has been used.

Can you please explain.

Thanks and regards,

Colin

Hola Colin

Yes, it would make sense to use estar, instead of ser. 

Here's an answer given to John in a different thread with pretty much the same question.
