    Making others smile and respecting others makes

    me feel good about myself. because i believe in what comes around goes around. In a mean while i have became selfish, but i was not happy with myself during all that time. I think real happiness is in giving not in taking... well not saying about sacrificing though... means you...

    If a person says they love you,

    going to the ends of the earth to show you that love shouldn't be a problem.

    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 think, to some extent,

    happiness is a choice. And some people, people like me, have to make that choice over and over and work a little bit harder than other people whose happiness comes more easily or more organically. I've accepted this so I don't dwell on being a little different from everyone...

    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.

    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 ^_'

    I have a feeling things are starting to look up.

    Closed today at work and I'm so happy and excited for no reason even though I'm exhausted and sick. I have my good days and my bad days but my future seems bright. Maybe this is a start to my happiness.

    But I get scared when I feel happiness in me.

    When I'm happy, there's always something that's going to crush it. So when I smile as I'm feeling happy, I slowly force myself to stop and be emotionless....I don't know. I'm afraid. Any advice?
