    All I Dream Of

    I only dream of being happy. I want the happy, perfect relationship, with the dog running in the yard, and children of my own. I have a house - technically it's my partners house, the cat, the almost step-children but it's not the same as my own. I have given so much in my life...

    My Happiness

    When you've dedicated years of own life to the happiness of others, is it wrong to prioritize your own? When you willingly turned your back on the things that makes you happy for the sake of others, is it wrong to turn back? Yesterday, I found the one small thing that would make...

    I do my best to be happy.

    I try to do things I enjoy like play music and spend time with my friends, but it's never enough. There is one thing in this world that makes me happier than I've ever been before, but he is halfway across the country at basic training. I know I will be happy when he comes home...

    To Quote..

    Because, of course, you must always look on the bright side of life. When you're feeling in the dumps, don't be silly chumps. Just purse your lips and whistle, thats the thing. Hehehe, quoting Monty Python there :)

    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.

    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.

    All I want is to be happy. To wake up with a huge smile on my face, to go about my day without being depressed at all. I just feel so sad all the time.. I wish I could be one of those people who are rarely sad but I'm not. I'm forever depressed and lonely. I just hope I'm not...
