i was reading over some of the posts and was wondering some things. do the things that people say really make people feel better? what is it that helps? people giving other people different viewpoints of situations surely doesnt work as well as some may believe. and agreeing with a sad person might make them feel better. but no matter what, the problem doesnt go away. maybe it's temporarily altered to seem better, but, eventually, it comes back and bites hard. i'm actually focusing this on ME, and not generalizing, however, others may agree. i just feel like it doesnt matter what people say, what i learn, or anything else. my glass will always be about 3/4 empty. when i smile, i cant even tell if it's fake anymore. i feel so har headed. how does one become happy, and if it's so easy to become sad, why isnt it easy to become happy? i dont really expect an answer that will solve this problem for me, because of what i just said, but i feel like it would be a nice discussion.
