  • I am not happy. I don't understand what happiness is some days.

    Does it depend on others? Because its not supposed to.

    Does is depend on success? Because if it did, you would only be happy for minutes at a time until you realize you have failed at something else.

    Its not that I am against being happy, I just don't understand. When you picture happy, you picture a smiling face. Most smiling faces are deceiving. Therefore, how can happiness depend on the "U" shape that people can make with their mouths?

    Sometimes I wish to be happy. I don't know why I do that. Being happy isn't happy for everyone. Smiles can hurt, too.
