    Unhappy

    I don't know why, but everytime I get remotely close to feeling happy, I think of something or someone that has done me wrong in the past and forget the happiness that I came close to. I don't think that I deserve to be happy and I often feel like no one cares...

    I am on meds for depression and don't deny I need them.  It seems like I have a pattern of unhappiness that I can't shake.  I can truly only remember a brief period of time when I was happy in college, that was well over 4 years ago.  Things just haven't been...

    Damn You Depression.

    Every time I think I am starting to feel genuinely happy, depression grabs me and drags me down once again. It's just a common cycle for me now. I'm just hoping that one day my depression will just die down and decide never to come back. I want to be a happy person, I don't want...

    I have no reason in the world to be unhappy. The people in my life are amazing, the experiences I have had and am having are great, there are no serious tragedies. And yet, in the middle of what should be the happiest most satisfying times, I feel dissatisfied - not truly happy...

    Truthfully, I am never mad.

    The only emotion I seem to feel other than happiness and love is sadness. For some reason, I have gotten a lot more callous and sad all the same. I usually always smile and am always laughing. Well, I actually haven't really laughed in a long time. Things don't seem to make me...

    Lately I seem to be in a mode of slowly crawling out of my depressed state and into a somewhat happier mood. Maybe it's the change in weather, or maybe it's something else, but I can barely, almost imperceptibly feel a slight change coming over my mood for the positive. However...
