    I Have Failed....

    I have been married for three years now going on four and have a wonderful husband. He works his tail off and provides for myself and our son. My son is 13 months old and is the reason I live. I have not been faithful at all to my husband and I can't quit it. He brings no passion...

    But I must not make it obvious in public,

    society forces you to mask your feelings and not think 'negative' thoughts.

    I'm Not Happy, No. ...

    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 find it easy to feign happiness,

    it's very simple actually. All you have to do is fake a smile and make a few jokes. No one even sees through the facade, it's really astonishing what a fake smile can hide. Make no mistake, I am content with my life and grateful for all that I have but these materials cannot...

    I Wonder If I Ever Have Been

    My life has consisted of many great moments, but I can't remember a time that I've really been happy for any period of time.  Maybe I crave drama.  Maybe the intense emotions, whether they be sadness, anger or fear, do make me happy.  I once had someone tell me...

    I'm not happy at all.

    Not in the slightest and I don't know what to do. I'm just really really tired of everything. My life, my family, my friends all of it. I just lost my way and i'm sad now. I'm really really really actually sad.

    because of how I thought happiness was obtained.

    I thought people or a person was suppose to make you happy. Clearly, I am wrong. I think the goal now is to figure out what it is inside that will make me happy. I've set small daily goals for myself. Like one is not to complain. I never notice that I complained so much till my...

    I've been talking to a new guy and we exchanged numbers and I don't care if its cheating. I don't really want to be with my boyfriend anymore. I met someone who treats me with respect and likes me for me. My boyfriend makes me feel sick. Im planning to break up with him.
