when you see the truth and the beauty in everything then you will be happy. no one is completely happy because that is just too hard to do when you are just mere mortal human beings. we have to have some unhappiness to feel happy, it's a double-edged sword. i find making small changes everyday helps. keeping life moving and interesting but having some sort of stablility is needed. i do not know your situation, but think about it, happiness is a grey area it is not something absolute you can not say you are absolutely happy for a length of time. you need to explore your emotions more, see what you are capable of, then maybe you will find happiness. ofcourse, happiness comes when we are not being self destructive.
on this note, I have to say that true inner peace is the road. to get there, you must first commit to Truth and uphold it as if it were the life string of the universe itself. through truth comes acceptance and the beginning of selfless living; through acceptance comes peace; through peace come love, joy, patience, beauty, love, and kindness. from all of these comes the liberation of one's mind/self/ego; from liberation of one's self comes liberation from ignorance, strife, pain, anger, jealousy, and all manner of disagreeable parts of man's nature.
my younger self went through some very selfish times, being depressed and believing there was no point to life, no matter what you had. in a sense, I still believe that is true, yet one need only find a purpose in order that life needs no point, only a cause to uphold. if that purpose is to help bring about the necessary change through discovery of the self and the learning of history's mistakes, I think a person can seek no greater achievement.
"We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I've witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I've seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them"-V for Vendetta

If you don't have a direction, you just linger in your own sorrows. Stop That!
I find a lot of it's outlook. Just constantly trying to be optimistic, seeing the best in things, not giving up, not falling into self-pity... But I also realize that there's only so hard you can fight. I hope you can find your way. It was very difficult for me, and I'm still not 100%.
You can start by changing your profile picture.<br />
You can end by stopping to crib.

Is there anything you want to do that you haven't done? Try everything until you find what works, and stop doing whatever doesn't. Life is hard; it's difficult to find your place in this mess.
