    Some people make me exceptionally happy!

    It's fun to have a crush. Real life ones are great. Celebrities too. They just bring a burst of happiness to my day. (I wish that one guy still worked at the coffee shop.) Anyway, who gets you all gushy? There are a number of male celebrities that I really like or think are...

    Have you ever dated someone,

    and for the first few months without a doubt you knew they were the one? But as time reveals itself, you realize that, that person isn't the one. As people we all want to be happy, but how do you distinguish if someone is there for you because they genuinely care, or if they're...

    Looking For The Key

    I just want to be happy again like I was when I was little girl. I'm tired of being weighted down by sadness and depression I feel like I am in invisible chains and I am looking for the key to free me but still can't find it. I just want to be happy.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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 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

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    "Believing in negative thoughts is the single

    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 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.
