I Create My Own Unhappiness

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 174 People

    Seeking Happiness Makes Us Unhappy.

    Demand is born out of duality: ‘I am unhappy and I must be happy’. In that very demand that I must be happy is unhappiness. When one makes an effort to be good, in that very goodness is its opposite, evil. Everything affirmed contains its own opposite, and effort to...

    I'm Messed Up.

    I have terrible thoughts. Sometimes I wish I was being abused, or raped, so people would feel sympathy for me. I'm a sicko for thinking something so terrible, and I know this. I also wish people around me were smart enough to see me for me. Because I can't. I don't know who...

    Vicious Self Destructive Behaviour

    I hate being alone... For the most part, it makes me feel pathetic and miserable. Depsite this, I'm alone too often... The weird thing is that I'm not that lonely, though. I have pretty many friends and I have a lot of oppurtunities to be with my friends, i.e. I get invited to...

    as a kid I was always upset about my home life

    but I didn't really know what about it was bothering me... I knew there was a lot of fighting and arguing but I didn't realize that more importantly there was no love or care or concern... I knew I was sad but I felt like there wasn't a legitimate reason to be so I would...

    I Wish I Could Stop!

    I really make myself miserable every single day. It has become a sort of habit, to just sit down and think of all the things I'm missing or to look in the mirror and hate what I see. I keep comparing my life to the life of others. How everyone seems to have it all. They all seem...

    I Know

    I usually catch myself saying this whenever I'm sad. Knowing this really can make you feel better. <br>or in my case, it can make you relize that you like feeling unhappy. As weird as that sounds.
