    Why Do I Sometimes Reject This Idea?

    I really want to be happy. What I don't do when i decide to be happy is to see it through. Sometimes I reject this idea and don't decide to be happy. Stupid huh? I am not sure why on earth I do this I consider it one of my failings.

    I've already had it happen several times. Lesson learnt: if you're happy all the time you will get friends. If you're an actual human being who gets angry and sad, forget it.
