    I'm Happy :d

    For the past few years, it's been extremely difficult to be happy with everything that was going on in my life. Parents divorced, boyfriends, low self esteem, eating disorder, cutting problem, letting people use me in ways that I'm ashamed to speak about. It was just a really...

    I Think I'm Alright

    For most of this year I've been feeling really down. Sometimes I think it really was depression and anxiety, although I never told anyone or went to the doctor to find out. I think starting university was a huge change for me and it definitely contributed to how I was feeling...

    Feeling Better

    I guess yesterday was a weird day for me. I definitely had a major break down, everything just got to me all at once. Bad memories kept flashing back, I started worrying about the future and I started hating myself. I woke up this morning and felt refreshed. Maybe I just needed a...

    I have had a long section of depression.

    It's been caused by quite a few factors, but it's really been compounding and it has been a difficult thing to deal with. I guess it was even exacerbated by the fact that right before this extended depressive period, I was feeling completely "on top of the world." I was SO in...

    I am trying to be happy

    for myself for all I've accomplished, trying to be cheerful and kind and loving to everyone, and love myself in the process. It's taking serious effort, but it's working. Send out love and you'll get it back.

    I am feeling so much better

    now than this morning. My heart isn't aching much. I can say I had a good day--the interview at the company I'm applying at, the late lunch, the good shopping time, then a few minutes of exercise when I got home.

    Feeling Better.

    Yesterday I felt so alone. I missed my family, too much for me to handle. This morning I woke up. I woke up feeling better. My family is far away, but just a phone call or email away. I still miss my parents and sister, and our little pudgy dog. Though I am on my own again, I'm...

    I feel sorta lighter than I have done in many years. I don't know how to explain it, but I guess it was a good thing to end that friendship with my supposed friend. When I think about it, I have always had the desire and wish to care for the world, my dreams and wishes have...

    I just am. It's difficult to find a bright side

    sometimes, but hey, their are people worse off. I have my basic needs when it comes to being happy. I'm not saying I don't feel down sometimes, I'm just saying I don't feel down as much. I'm feeling better, and that is a good thing.
