Is there a way to tell when glücklich means happy vs lucky?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mizinamo

It essentially always means "happy".

"lucky" is usually described as "having luck", i.e. Glück haben.

"You were lucky" = Du hast Glück gehabt

I'm lucky this way? Warum nicht?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/quis_lib_duo

= Ich habe auf diese Art (und Weise) Glück.

In German:

Glück haben = be lucky
glücklich sein = be happy


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/stepintime

...and "I'm happy this way / the way it is" would more likely be "ich bin glücklich so" (instead of "ich bin so glücklich").

When I read "Ich bin so glücklich", I definitely assume that person means "I am so happy", because while "I'm happy the way it is" wouldn't be wrong, it would be an unusual way to phrase it.
