    Every year it always feels like I need to get

    my **** together, but looking back at each year, I'm thinking wow, now I have everything that I didn't have back then, so everything was okay. Then, I look at the current year and I'm thinking, but is everything okay now? It is a really stressful cycle, but I realized. Life is...

    Is Happiness That Elusive?

    Let me give this a try and see where it goes.  Life has been a bit of a downer for me lately.  Marriage on it's last legs.  Finances in a bad way due to an injury last November and no work since then.  I am a self employed artist so no worker's comp. ...

    I sat on the bus, waiting in the bus lot this

    morning, and as I did so, I gazed upon the early morning sky, and saw a beautiful pink sky, with blue clouds, and it was the prettiest thing ever. It was like a foreshadow of what was to come. Like the day will be full of rainbows and clear skies or something. It was at that...

    Some days I feel like I'm not

    even trying to better myself. That I enjoy being miserable, but I think the truth is I don't know what true happiness is & maybe I'm scared of it. I don't mean one moment of joy, I mean life. I don't know how to better myself, I don't know how to find happiness, life scares me.

    When someone walks out of your life,

    let them. They are just making more room for someone better to walk in!

    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

    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.

    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.

    Does anybody ever feel like they were meant

    for something more? Something greater? Like, where they are currently isn't where they're supposed to be. Not just where they are personally, professionally, romantically or anything like that. But as though you weren't meant for greater things, meant to do something great, to...

    Hello guys. Since childhood,

    I have been a person that is easy to be made fun off. I have always been that isolated kid sitting on the last bench without really talking to anyone. I have always been good in academics. I scored cgpa 9.8 in class 10 and 82 % in class 12. Every now and then, I had a couple of...

    You are responsible for your own happiness.

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

    I feel so depressed,

    and so confused because of it, it makes me paranoid, I start to suspect everyone is plotting against me, but still I can't cry, I want to let it out, but I don't know why my mind doesn't react that way, it just builds up inside, and depresses me more and more, I don't want to be...

    I have so many ambitions

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Try finding the difference between being happy

    and then laughing to a joke. Being happy should happen out of the blue, to be happy just because you want to. And then to laugh at a joke, people call it happiness, but it's really just a reaction to something from your own opinion. If it really is the case, then I'm never...

    I thought about it pretty hard yesterday.

    There was one ***** that fought to get to my egg, and my egg survived to become a fetus, then that fetus survived being born. Then i fought to survive growing up, and becoming an adult. I would be doing myself no favors by giving up. If the ***** could do it, lol, so can i.

    As I ponder.....I am wondering

    if I will ever be disciplined enough...that is...have enough self discipline to be truly satisfied and reasonably happy. Any tips would be appreciated.
