    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...

    I can never be happy,

    especially for other people. Something good happens to my closest friends, and all it does is create jealousy and makes me feel bad. I should be happy with what I have, but I just can't force myself to feel that way.

    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.

    I don't remember the last time I was truly

    happy. Maybe sometimes before high school. Now I am 23 and miserable all the time. I feel like I am wasting my time, not doing what I love, not making my dreams come true. I had so many big plans and goals for myself and haven't made any of those come true. I feel like a failure...

    Why Can't I Just Be Like Everyone Else

    I honestly can't think of the last time I was truly happy. When I'm out with friends I just find myself watching them have fun while I sit there and wait for the night to end. Whenever I'm alone, I want to be around people. But whenever I'm around people, I just want the to leave...

    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...
