I Just Want to Be 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'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...

    It seems like I always come here to release

    something I can't immediately tell anyone at the time. Thinking I'll be happier once I get something off my chest or write it down. But then I always end up crying. Mind you, I'm naturally an emotional person...Is this doing any good?

    I know this sounds desperate,

    sad & depressing, maybe even stupid to some. Someone once asked me, what do you want out of a relationship? And I said... Honestly, I just want to be happy - I can't hope/ask for anything else/more. I haven't been happy for a very long time. I know getting in a relationship...

    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.

    All my life I've been the ugly one,

    the fat one, the one everybody leaves out. So it's led me to be different... It's actually so much, I can't even begin to explain it all... You have no idea how many sentences I've written down and erased again to avoid the trouble. I just don't see the point in life anymore...

    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.

    My world turned upside down a month ago

    when I found out my bf of two years was cheating on me. I had my suspicions, but what I found was worse. More than one..two and who knows what more I didn't know! One if the girls I confronted she didn't say much but say she had been with my bf just as long as I had. And the...

    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.

    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..

    But sometimes I become so distracted by other things that it takes my mind off of it...it could be weeks or just a few days...but when I'm no longer occupied with something, it's just a sudden rush of all these negative urges and thoughts. I can literally feel the pressure FORCE...

    I just want to be happy.

    It's the only birthday wish I have ever had, for as long as I can remember. Sometimes I worry I might never fully achieve it. It's a dangerous idea to preoccupy yourself with, but it's always lingering at the back of my mind.

    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...

    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...

    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.
