    Often when we lose hope

    and think this is the end. Life itself smiles at us and says, "Relax. It's just a bend, it's not the end"

    I need to be positive

    because I am going through a bad break up... Losing the boy I thought I was going to be with forever. I hurt so badly inside and feel incredibly lonely even though I have great family and friends. Any advice?

    Today I did something I haven't done in a while.

    I searched my ex on Facebook. The ex that destroyed me two years ago. The ex that I hated with every fiber of my being. The ex that if murder was legal, he would be the first on my list. The ex that caused me so much heartbreak without an explanation. I searched him and I...

    There are times in my life

    where I experience happiness. Those are beautiful times, like traveling outside of my own body. I want that feeling all the time

    Think of a scale. On one side are the bad

    things in your life, on the other one the good. The farther the scale tips towards the bad side, the closer you are to depression. Towards the good side, the closer you are to happiness. If you want to be happier, you can do two things: Either try to remove some of the bad...

    Everybody in my family thinks

    that I'm the only one in the family that isn't hurting. It's hurts even more when they brush off something I've said that kindve shows that I'm not a happy person inside.

    I want to be happy. I want a little place of

    my own filled with the things that make me happy. I want a life overflowing with love, laughter, honesty and communication. I want to wake up happy in the morning and not be afraid of the loneliness at night. I want to be kissed in the moonlight. I want to eat chocolate...

    because of weird people on here, we all have ran into our fair share. But at the same time I was looking at this page and seeing how sad some of you are with your life and it truly saddens me. You will find your happiness one day, it probably isn't going to be today, and it...

    Such a dynamic statement.

    Simple, sure, but I doubt the achievement of it has been anything but simple. For anyone. How does one go about this then? When it's so ******* complicated to see the worth in each day. How?? I'm trying though. God knows I'm trying. The world dejects me to no end if I let it...

    I can feel myself getting down again,

    trying my hardest to stop myself from feeling sad again. Yesterday I knew this would happen, I know myself too well. I do think I'm bipolar. I'm almost certain about it.

    I've been feeling pretty good about myself

    I want to be happy for once.

    I'm not the type of person to be negative about

    things. I just don't want this to end up like everyone else I've been with. I'm really trying. If this goes bad though, I'm going to be done for a while. I hope it works out. This person makes me really happy ☺

    situation be what it is instead of what you think it should be, and then making the best of it.

    for me to be truly happy I need to accept the past. That's the key. But I mean accept the past, not forget the past. They are completely different things. I don't want to forget how far I've come in my life or forget even the awful things that made me who I am today (even though...

    They say the people who exhibit the most

    kindness have experienced a lot of pain. The ones who act like the don't need love are the ones who need it more. The one's who take care of everyone else need care the most. And the people who smile may be the ones who cry when nobody is around.

    You know, it's all about values.

    Do you value being fit and active and able to do so much more? If so you'll eat right, do lot's of exercises, probably not smoke and probably not drink too much and lots of other things. That's great if it fits into your life plan. Others get their fun from doing other things...

    I honestly just want to be happy,

    like no matter what I do I'm never really truly happy, I do smile and I do laugh but inside I just feel sad or upset. And I feel so different then everyone else but I don't say anything cause I don't wanna ruin their happiness.
