I Just Want to Be Happy

    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...

    I'm so conflicted about what I should do.

    I was with my husband for a long time, but we separated over a year ago. Now he wants to try and work things out. He's a sweet person, and I care about him a lot. I want him to be happy, but I want to be happy too. He has some problems with depression and other things that I'm...

    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...

    When you see me...I am all smiles.

    n But inside I am screaming, crying trying to break out of my skin. I trust no one, confide in no one. I carry my heartache everyday underneath the laughter and good deeds. My heart wants to smile too, my mind wants to be ok and not think crazy thoughts. Im so tired of faking my...

    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...

    To be honest, I'm afraid of being happy.

    Maybe it's because everything that makes me happy disappears.

    But, doesn't everyone?

    I want to happy, not just when good things happen. But on a normal day, I want to wake up and think 'today will be a good day', but I won't.

    For the first time in a

    while I had a great night out. But now I'm paying for it. Sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because that's how life is. I get punished for being happy. Things are never so bad, so long as I am unhappy. All I want is to be happy, and to be happy with someone.

    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...

    It just not seems to be possible

    for some reason. Unless things are positive, I worry too much and needlessly make myself unhappy. A horrible habit that I wish would go away. This is not good for my overall well-being and I know that but can it ever stop?
