    Never Been Happy

    All my life I tried to be happy, to feel happy, to be contented. To be honest, I don't even know what happiness means, literally. I never felt happy, I tried but at the end of the day, I still feel the sadness in me. I may look like I'm having fun, like I'm very happy and...

    Happy "again"?

    I can't remember being happy. It sounds horrible saying it, but I'm going on 20+ years of MDD, and I don't remember what "happy" is, or content, calm, relaxed, joyous. I never feel any of these, though I know I must have as a child. Yes, I would love to "become happy again". How...

    And It's Not Working For Me

    I KNOW I'm in a downward cycle, I'm sinking into a depression again. I'm trying to fight it. But I cannot win. I did things to try to make me feel better. I did things to try to improve my life. But nothing seems to be working. I can't fight it. I just have to...

    I Feel Like No One Will Ever Understand Me

    Every day when I wake up, I feel as if none of the things I experienced from yesterday existed, but it did. I hide myself from the world sometimes just to get away from all the horrible things that are happening. In school, I'm quiet and shy, but when I'm with my friends, they...

    I'm Getting There

    I thought I would never be happy again. Depression does that to you. I felt helpless and alone and I was extremely negative. I was waiting for someone to rescue me from myself, but no one ever really did. Somewhere along the line, I realized that I COULD be in control of my life...

    Pulled Back

    Lately, I've been feeling a little sad. I don't know if it's because I've been doing absolutely nothing the past couple of days but I all can say is that 3 days seem like 3 months, as it once did before. I hate it that it's come down to this. My friends are busy, that's fine I...

    This poem is something I recite to myself a lot

    when I'm feeling really down; Everyone wants happiness, No one wants pain, But you can't make a rainbow, Without a little rain. Hope this helps people feel a bit better about themselves and their lives :)

    Joining EP was a good start.

    I felt a real connection with someone. I know prematurely but we seem to have a lot in common. I felt better than I have in a long time just chatting. Here's to becoming happy again.
