    Mexico I think lying on the beach in Mexico

    will make me very happy indeed. All by myself. No husband. No kids. No one to ask me to do anything at all. Don't get me wrong, I love my family. It's just that I never have time to myself. So for once in my life, I'm going to be self-indulgent and leave this horrible...

    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...

    I don't know when or what happened in my life

    that I got to this point. I'm most of the time sad & down. I can hardly remember how it feels to be happy. How it feels to have fun. I just have horrible thoughts. It's not that I don't want to live anymore, I just want to stop my mind and be happy like anybody else.

    I know that in order

    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...

    A secret to happiness is letting every

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

    Who wants fame and fortune?

    Not me. I want happiness. You could throw a million dollars at my face and guess what?! I'll throw it right back at yours. I don't need money to be happy. I need happiness to be happy. And what do you need to be happy? Happiness. It doesn't come from things or people. You. You...

    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.

    I will not be a passive,

    I want to be happy for once.

    I'm not really sure if it's

    because of me having two coffees today, or was it because I'm happy for a cousin of mine because she gets to drive successfully for the first time, or the combination of both. But this feeling of happiness is so surreal. It's as though I've achieved my climax XD No pun intended...

    Happiness doesn't come very easily to me,

    most of the time. But when it does, it could only source from a simple hello, a simple smile. To light up my day. I just want to say thank you, for anyone who cares enough to listen to me, and even bring light to my darkness. You know who you are ^_'

    For my entire life, I've never experienced true

    happiness. Maybe I have, but it never was lasting at all. I'd say that the longest I've been truly happy is one hour, and the times that this has happened were very scarce. I've not even felt loved until this year. I see so many people take happiness for granted, though. They...

    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.

    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...

    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...
