    Wild Ramblings

     I might be writing this to myself really, because few people may ever understand a word that I’m trying to say. I’m starting to accept that the loneliness I feel in my heart may remain there for a while.  I’ve been betrayed in ways that used to keep...

    "Believing in negative thoughts is the single

    greatest obstruction in life" As a young girl I took what people said to heart whether it was positive or negative. I believed in every word spoken over me. I soon came to the realization that I had been destroying myself. You see, no one can make you feel inferior without your...

    Is happiness just the gap between expectations

    and reality? Expect more you get miserable; expect less than you get and you are happy.

    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.

    I want to be happy but without sexual perverts

    who can't keep theirselves tame, or blame it on their hormones... Being happy does not involve your **** people. -_- it involves your heart

    Don't we all want to be happy ?

    Some are unhappy because of bad relationships, unfulfilling jobs, sickness, finance and etc. The bottom line is happiness is mastering mind to see any situation in a positive thought. It doesn't matter if we are in a situation that may not pleasant but if we can master or...

    sometimes we need to battle with our own

    feelings, if we are sad SMILE, if we are broken LAUGH..we need to attract happiness and not the other way around. Easier said than done but it's not bad to keep on trying. If you believe, it will happen.

    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.

    This guy hit me up of Facebook yesterday.

    I knew he graduated 4 years before me and he was back in town after college trying to meet some new people. I decided why not hang out with him. I went to his house and we talked for an hour or two and ended up making out and falling asleep together. It was actually a really...

    I've went through a lot in my marriage of 14

    years. For the past 5 years, I've always found myself very depressed and upset. One major damage was because my husband always thinks very negatively about me. Every 1st January, and birthday, I always make the same wish that I will be happy. But till last June, I realised...

    Does anyone believe that happiness truly exists

    or is it just an illusion? I can't remember there being a point in time where I was truly happy.

    I quit. It's not worth it anymore.

    I'm not worth it. It would be so easy to just end it. Maybe I'll finally be happy. I can't deal with this anymore. The hurtful words being thrown at me, the stress, the constant fear of of what someone thinks of me. I want it all to end.

    Sometimes I wonder: Am I ever going to be truly

    happy with my life? Honestly I don't think I have ever been truly happy. I know that we can't go thru life just being happy all of the time. We have to have difficult times so we can appreciate the good times. But I am just done.... When is this "Happiness" supposed to start...

    This past year has changed dramatically

    for me. I joined a frat, fell in love, stopped a friend's suicide, became heartbroken, got kicked out of my house, became a spokesperson for LGBT rights, walked at my first Pride Parade, and came back home. I know that I've impacted the lives of people. They have told me. But...

    This is what everyone say!

    I want to be happy! Does it really happen to you? I even had a hard time trusting someone, I guess this is what happen when you trust someone before and broke it! I wish you all of what are you looking for in your life.

    I can't deal with the arguing

    and frustration anymore. I can't take the secrets and the crying. I don't know how to tell anybody so I just push them away. I tired of feeling like this.

    time so I can go to sleep again. Happiness is not an option as many may suggest, write or think. Right now I don't have the strength to do anything. My husband, who is an angel, brought me breakfast. But even being next to him and our pet I just feel like crying and I would like...

    Happiness and Love just go together.

    If I could find love again, I would find happiness. After 14 years of marriage I realized I wasn't happy and never would be where I was. I would be happy just to be with someone that loved me for who I am, not for the idea of who I may one day become........if I would just...
