    I don't get how some people can be

    so happy all the time, some might be pretending like me but some people are just literally ******* bubbles and sunshine all the time and they have everything they want. A nice house, perfect parents, amazing life, some of you might understand what I'm saying, others won't.

    There isn't enough anything in this world

    that could make me happy, I'm just so messed up, I couldn't possibly get any lower than I am now and there's no way I can get through without a burial.

    I'm not happy, no. It's for the best. If I'm happy, everything's nice in the world, I like who and what I am, I get euforic, believe in myself without questions, lose my inhibitions, do something really stupid and sink into a deadly cesspool of despair and depression. It's best...

    I'm just not happy. To tell the truth I've never been a happy person. I've had happy moments in my life but those fade all too quickly. I try to pretend I'm happy, but **** all the pretending. I'm just not a happy person.
