    So EP, despite many of my worrisome,

    anxious, and 'unhappy' posts, today was alright. It wad a happy day. I spent it with family and friends and I didn't feel so alone. Of course there is not someone special, but that takes time and I'm willing to wait... It was a start. After my midnight post the other night...

    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 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...

    Why Not Me

    I wish that I could find happiness and stay happy.  I am so jealous of people that seem to always be smiling and not have a care in the world.  I have so many problems in my life.  I have depression and anxiety problems (BPD).  I have a handful of health...

    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...

    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.

    Always Sad.

    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...

    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...

    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 don't know 'how to be' happy. I've never really felt more than just content with things. But I'm at a point in my life where I have to grow up and accept myself and love myself. I'm in a great relationship with someone, who I could see myself with in the long future. But my...

    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.

    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...
