I Want to Be Happy

    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...

    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...

    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 don't know what to do anymore.

    I have a boyfriend who is younger and who just doesn't get how he's suppose to be in a relationship. Sometimes are great but when it comes to the real world, they're not. I have my own place and he stays often, eating my food, using my things but doesn't once take any initiative...

    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.

    Well, it's been almost 2 months she left me.

    Now, I'm drinking daily, smoking cigarettes and I'm in grip of insomnia. I gave up cigarettes many years back. I was never a person like this. This break up changed my life. I'm slowly losing everything. I wanna move on but it's been very hard. Tried everything. I'm weak now.

    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 ^_'

    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.
