    I'm trying. It's so hard

    when people drag me down. I just want to cry or sleep but I can't do either. My stomach hurts because I can't help you and I'm afraid to get close to you

    Isn't everyone? I guess to answer this

    question, you have to know what you're definition of happiness is. For me, I'm not talking about watching a clip and getting a chuckle... I'm talking about the kind of happiness which makes you glow. That inner glow which allows people to know you're in a very good place. I...

    They say that happiness is

    rather a journey than a destination. So in this journey I'm learning to be completely present and accepting everything as it is. No expectations, as we know, they may lead to disappointments. I want to experience that moment, where I'm on my own and thinking "this is it, this is...

    I dont remember the last time I was truly happy.

    I always have a smile on my face but 99.9% of the time it is a fake smile.

    You are responsible for your own happiness.

    If you expect others to make you happy, you will always be disappointed.

    Excuse me while I throw myself a pity party.

    I generally try to be a positive person but every once in awhile my emotions just take over and then the flood hits. It won't last long though. It's usually just a flash flood. Lolol.

    I am saddened by Fall,

    her last colors on display. I count falling leaves with love me does and know she wills. I am carried away, stream side, to reluctantly bare witness. Watching her last colors carried away.

    When negativity enter your headspace.

    Show it the door and tell it there's no vacancy. Never give negativity a home :-)

    Happiness is often defined in one of two ways.

    Most people think of happiness in terms of hedonic happiness. In other words, the pleasurable experiences of life, and also, achievements, accomplishments, anything that gives you those brief highs. What differentiates this kind of happiness is that it is brief. You’ll find...

    Each day is a struggle.

    For me, trying to find happiness is like trying to find gold. I have NO friends and no confidence. I can't even talk to girls because of how nervous I get. Almost to the point of sweating and stuttering whenever a girl gets near me. I've never even kissed or held hands with a...

    Don't Try To Find Happiness, Build It.

    I have found that you don't FIND happiness, you actually have to make it. Get rid of things that block happiness and surround yourself with lots of good things. Those things can be friends, hobbies, lifestyle, the way you occupy your time and mind and many other things. Getting...

    and goals I have in mind. But problem is that I try and achieve all of them at once. Whether it's a career, travel, love etc. I find my self stressing out and bring myself down because I can't make everything perfect. I hate it.
