I've felt this many times. Thanks for speaking up.<br />
<br />
Pema Chodron has written some really helpful books on this - I recommend Start Where You Are.<br />
<br />
She's Buddhist, I'm not, and it has taken, and still is taking, time for me to let go of some of the ideas that I have had a death-grip on - like deserving, being happy, and judging myself harshly, etc.<br />
<br />
Now I think happiness is way overrated.
