    I just feel a strong resentment towards my

    mother. I know it isn't right but for my whole life she's done nothing but being me down. What do I do? I tried to tell her how I feel and she's been ignoring me for a month now, almost as if to say it's MY FAULT that she bullies me

    that is...until I found this site.

    ..I've met a lot of truly sincere, funny, and kind people here. and I guess I just want to say thanks to those people and let you know that all of you have inspired me to get help for my cutting problem and to keep fighting no matter how badly I wanted to quit. I have to say that...

    Cynically Me

    I honestly can't remember last time I was really happy. The feeling of pure, true happiness is just a vague image in my mind. Maybe it doesn't really exist. Maybe I make myself so unhappy because I think I am incapable of feeling happiness. I truly believe most of the happy...

    My mother says I was an unhappy baby,

    always screaming my head off for no reason, always red faced and ugly. Everyone says they tried their best to make me happy and excited, but I was still a crier, well into later childhood. I was always moody and temperamental and found joy in little to nothing. They said...

    I have to say that the reason

    for me not being happy is because of my weight. I am a 20 year old overweight female and I haven't experienced the emotion of being happy. I don't know how it feels like to be happy. I don't know how I can achieve being happy. It's hard for me being this way and not knowing how...

    Its Been To Long

    I cant remember a time when I was truly happy, the closest times are when I read or when I'm with my best friend but when he leaves or I put down the book I feel even worse.

    No Such Thing

    Before you guys think there is something wrong with you, I have this theory about how I dont think anyone is TRULY HAPPY. Happiness comes in small doses, your child's smile, a chocolate chip cookie, an ******. People that seem to be happy all the time are fake, and they have...

    this thought often creeps up on me; quietly

    and uninvited throughout the day. i have no recollection of a period of time where i have felt truly happy, uninhibited, free...not even as a child. i thought being a mother would give me some sort of purpose, a freedom from this neurosis, a direction. however, i feel more lost...

    I can't remember when I began to be "not" happy since childhood. Life to me is full of routine, you go to school in a routine. you go to university in a routine. you go to get a job in a routine. Yes, people say why not make a change. The fact is you have your family to look...

    Even when things were good in my life,

    I was never settled or satisified, there was always elements of doubt and not feeling like I fit in.

    Ever Been Happy?

    I've been thinking lately that I can't ever recall REALLY being happy. I had brief moments, very short when I had a good time. But I can't really say when I've BEEN happy. I have two kids and I thought I was happy when they were born, and even now and then they make me smile. The...
