I Am Trying to Be Happy

    Sometimes just the attempt at being happy

    for only a few seconds can be such a hassle. I've been this way for a while now and it's just eating away at me, will I feel this way forever? I'm starting to feel as if I will.

    Just Simply Trying

    I have been unhappy for a long time due to a lot of things going on in my life. I tried to be out of the house as much as I could, because I didn't like being home alone, so I got two jobs as well as going to school... Yesterday, I quit my job that I didn't like anymore and I...

    I've already had it happen several times.

    Lesson learnt: if you're happy all the time you will get friends. If you're an actual human being who gets angry and sad, forget it.

    When I was 5 years old,

    my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.–John Lennon
