    Happiness

    A state of mind. The other day I found myself in a nervous breakdown, where I cried & really thought about my life. I had breakfast last weekend with a female friend we ordered, ate & had a long conversation on different topic's. We debated which I find most enjoyable when you...

    Too Much Abuse!

    I often ask myself the question what is happiness. I really don't know, I know how to survive, live from day to day. But I have horrible bouts of depression. What steps do I have to take to get the definition of happiness. I have lived in the dark now I need to go to the light.

    I trying to put my life back together

    after years of being an addict and now I'm losing every thing I own. Only working part time. Looking for a full time job and bills due in two days. I hate myself for what I've done and wish I could turn it all around.

    Happiness...

    It's not something that you "get", it's actually something that is created. You see, happiness begins with the self, inside. No matter how many things, people, whatever you may be surrounded by, if you are not happy as an individual you will never be truly happy. So go find...

    so simple and yet so complex

    Dumbed down and boiled down, yes, that is what I want in life. I simply want to be happy. I have grown up seeing people try to spread so much good by spreading themselves so thin, and in the end being unhappy. I made a promise with myself many years ago that I would not be like...

    Stop Reminding Me

    Sometimes it feels like I simply am happy, then the world grabs a hold of me and reminds me of all the terrible things in it. Why is happiness so hard to maintain?

    I Never Thought That Would Be Too Much To Ask!

    Happiness Is ...

    It's not hard for me to be happy.  I'm not a high maintenance person nor do I have to have expensive things around me to be content.  Good friends and family, warmth perhaps accompanied by a glass of wine.  I love music, visual arts, a good movie ... something...

    Why Am I Not Happy?

    I'll tell you why I'm not happy. I'm not happy because I'm with someone that honestly, I cannot stand. But my loyalty and my selflessness is keeping me here. We have two children together and I can't seem to break myself free from his grip. It's hard trying to be a Mom with two...
