I Just Want to Be Happy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,406 People

    Is that too much to ask for?

    Oh, wait. Yeah, it is. Can I just be a cat please? I'll just sleep and hunt little mice whenever I feel like it. I'll promise to only go to the bathroom in my litter box and I'll even let you pet my ears.

    Is happiness just the gap between expectations

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

    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...

    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...

    Faith

    I believe in God simply because of one reason...when you believe, you mustn't say about you..."I am lonely" or "I am unhappy". This feeling of neighbourhood of the God makes me happy, makes me stronger and gives me possibilities to see the world in better way, in wider aspect...

    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...

    "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...

    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...

    I honestly think the biggest obstacle between

    myself and happiness is this picture in my head of how it all is supposed to be. At this point in my life I have to sit down and ask myself what it is that I want. I imagine a very clean house cuddled up with a man that I love watching a movie and spending time with him. I...

    I think, to some extent,

    that happiness is a choice. I think there are people, people like me, who have to work a little harder than everyone else to be happy. And that effort is a commitment. And that effort can be exhausting. I'm not unhappy- but I have a huge void that I've spent my life trying...

    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 woke up this morning just wanting to be night

    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...

    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.
