    You are NEVER going to be happy

    if you are always comparing your life to other people's and constantly creating a picture in your head of how things should be as to how they currently are. There's nothing wrong with looking to expand and improve. However, sometimes I think you should take a good look at what...

    Happy happy. I was happy

    and free. Out of no where. All of a sudden I'm sad again. I let my guards down. This "sadness" won't last for long. Not again. I hate when this happens. I care too much about unnecessary things and for that I pay for it. Things that don't matter. Pointless and ridiculous. I...

    I wish I could make everyone happy.

    Everyone at work, all the customers, all the bosses, all the hot women, all the cool dudes. And all of the general public. All of my family too. Not that I make anybody angry, but my quiet personality certainly makes me feel like people don't like speaking to me. I do get sad...

    Without happiness you will never feel complete. Above all what most people want is happiness, not money, big cars or a mansion.   If you were to choose what would you choose? Happiness for me! Thanks!

    We are all so different,

    each and everyone one of us. But there is one thing we all have in common and that's that we want to be happy. Comment something below to spread a smile or encourage the domino effect of happiness. God knows we need it.

    This is what most of us say everyday.

    We want to be happy. Most of us don't know what it means to be happy. We believe that happy comes in simple forms. Forms like a healthy relationship, millions of dollars, going to a completely different place in the world. We always feel like if we had that one thing we would...
