I Just Want to Be Happy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,411 People

    Welp, here goes another day of hating myself.

    Everyday is so miserable, sometimes I just don't know if I'll ever feel truly happy again. I'm always worried or paranoid about something. One day. One day is all I want to not have a care in the world. Can't always get what you want though .... It would just be nice.

    God only chose certain people to be happy.

    . Without people suffering, there wouldn't be happiness in life. So if you're happy.. Be proud. Feel lucky. Because someone is going through pain to keep the world in balance through HATE. Love.. The thing God didn't want for everyone to experience.

    I want to be happy, I really do.

    I just don't know how. My life hasn't been easy and I've had to deal with a lot of obstacles, things most people never have to face.

    Looking For The Key

    to good people? I do my best to help others and get home to only notice how lonely I am. So many friends have neglected me and I know that means that I don't need them, but damn! I don't do anything wrong. It makes me think something is wrong with me. Boys think they can just...

    They say it's better to have loved

    than to have never loved at all. What I've realized is that being numb is such a boring state. Your not living until you feel emotion. I was happily in love. Now that I'm heart broken I'm just going to embrace this emotion while it last. Waking up and not giving up.

    I suppose I haven't been through enough pain.

    Only this time like every other time, the pain I'm experiencing is with myself. What am I even doing right now? Why am I feeling the way I am right now? I don't want to hurt myself anymore which is a great step up for me, but how do I handle it now? It seems like nothing is...

    My husband & I went on a date yesterday

    and actually had a great time together! He smiled and laughed and talked, even flirted a little! I was taken aback! I wish that happened more often.

    My View On Happiness

    Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of...

    They say smiling is a bunch of muscular

    What I want... Is to be happy

    for more than three day intervals.. To become overwhelmed with happiness once more, to have my cheeks hurt from smiling too hard, to be at peace with life.. Thats what would make me happy..

    At least a friend. Someone that won't stop talking to me because I'm boring or awkward or weird. Someone that'll always be there for me. I get lonely. I get very very lonely. Even when I'm surround by people I feel like I'm locked in a glass closet. They see me but they don't...

    I just want to be okay again.

    I want everything to be how it used to be, those days when I went to bed with a smile on my face. Now sometimes I wake up crying with not a clue why until my reality hits me dead center in the face. It's upsetting.
