    Default I was happy

    "I was happy", "I have been poor",etc.

    Do we need time expressions for sentences like the two all the time? Or it can be omitted when we think period is not important or each other already knows it?

    Thank you for great answers and your time and help as usual.

    The context determines how much you need to say.
