    I walk around like nothing is wrong.

    Fake smiling has become routine. I don't know what to do with myself. Every attempt at being truly happy never works. I always hate myself. I always want to look skinnier, prettier, shorter, taller, etc. I always want to change myself on the outside, so I can feel comfort. I...

    No Matter What, I Am Never Happy

    It doesn't matter what I do, where I go, or where life takes me ... I am never happy. What else is there to say? Nothing is ever quite right or good enough for me, including myself. There's always something wrong with my job, my house, my friends, my religion, my finances, my...

    Choice

    Each moment I can choose joy or misery. It is my choice and no one can make it for me. Sometimes people express anger when I choose joy while the hand of fate is slapping the stuffing out of me. I don't mean to offend but the absurdity of my best efforts to succeed are ridiculous...

    Fear

    I am not only never truly happy, I am afraid of happiness. I'm scared to death that even the smallest amount of happiness will be torn away from me by some set back or unfortunate event. I've become so suicidal in past months it's unbearable.
