    Pondering Happiness

    I do wish I were happier everyday.  I think what makes it hard for me is living alone and never having children.  I'm too old now to have children and that saddens me.  I do work with them though.  Another thing that makes it difficult is the...

    Who Doesn't? ...

    Who doesn't? Although, where I'm concerned, the happier I am, the more  mistakes I do. Being sad puts me in my place, as a fallible, flawed, moronic human being (though the jury's still out on that one...)

    Happiness????

    I've heard about it, but i don't understand it.  Maybe if, everytime I looked at any part of my life I didn't see failure, I could be happy.  I see myself as a failure in relationships after everything I've gone through the last 2 years.  I see myself as a failure...
