    36 Years and Now What

    My husband of 36 years is obsessed with cars.  This is not the first time, when the children were young I begged him to stop because of the cost of this hobby, so he did.  About 10 years ago, children grown at this time, he visited the doctor because he was not feeling...

    Sigh .......

    I do not remember the last time I was happy. I do not know how to talk to people, I am a very boring person, thus I lose friends easily. People who hang out with me initially and get to know me, suddenly stop hanging out with me and leave me. Soon enough I see them hanging out...

    Funny

    Happiness is a funny thing. Once you have it, there's really nothing else left. you're happy. end of story. getting to be happy is a tragedy of it's own. you starve yourself, spend lots of money, fry your skin, dye your hair, buy new things. it's a new hell of a life you've put...

    Friends?

    Things were so different back then. I used to have friends who I can hang out and chat with. We do loads of crazy stuff and believe me, I thought I have found true friends who I can rely on in this lifetime. However, all good things always come to an end. Now my close friends...

    Still Tryin'

    I can't really remember what it feels like.  Now I've never expected or thought that anyone is happy all the time, but I've always been envious of people who feel contented some or most of the time.  Mainly because I'm just curious what it's like.  I don't know...

    I Am Weary of Being Unhappy.

    I work, and I work some more.  My husband ignores me, my friends don't call anymore because I am always working, and I feel lonely and isolated even though I am surrounded by people all day long.  I feel frightened that I will never be happy again.  I hope tomorrow...

    When Will I Be Happy?

    I don't think I'm ever truly happy. This sounds ridiculous but if I am laughing or smiling sometimes something in my heart tells me that I shouldn't. And then I feel guilty for the glimpse of happiness I got. For some reason I feel like I don't deserve happiness. If I'm having...
