I may be wrong, but I still don't see a problem with the sentence below:
"I am happiest when I am with my friends."
In this case, the person is making a comparison with himself/herself in other situations. Meaning that the situation in which he/she is happiest is when with friends.
This is different from comparing himself/herself to other people, which would be the case in the sentence below:
"I am the happiest person in the world."
This seems to be the exact situation that was explained in P.S.' link:
"Sometimes we compare a person or thing in one situation with the same person or thing in a different situation. In this case, when the superlative adjective or adverb is later in the sentence, we usually don't use 'the'."
