    I am feeling happier

    We use comparative adjectives to describe people and things:
    This car is certainly better but it’s much more expensive.
    I’m feeling happier now.
    We need a bigger garden

    Please explain to me why have they used ' I am feeling happier ' and not 'I feel happier'?

    The progressive form may suggest the temporary nature of the feeling, but I don't think there is any significant difference between the two forms here.
