It's easier to...

  1. feel crappy and stay that way in case something bad happens.

  2. be happy even at the risk having that taken away.

  3. feel nothing at all so i'm not affected in any way.

    I sometime just don't even want to get better or feel happy cause i know i'll just end up being sad again. I prefer to be just straight sad. Happiness is ephemeral, while Sadness is eternal :(

    I think I'd like to remain apathetic about everything. It bothers me at first but I'm sure I'd get used to it. Having happiness taken away is one of the hardest things to deal with. At least if you don't care, you can't get hurt.

    I would rather feel nothing, no happiness, no anger, no depression, no sadness nothing.

    But then, that said, it's our emotions that make us human.

    I was going to vote for feeling nothing, but then realised that the question is what's easier, so I voted that it's easier to be happy even at the risk of having it taken away, because even though I would rather not feel anything at all, I still let myself hope that I can be happy. Even though it hurts all the more when I crash back down, I find it easy to find little bits of happiness. It's just sad that they're so few and far between.

    I went for rather just stay sad then having to deal with the down hill slide once I'm happy.

    When ever I'm happy, someone seems to want to fuck it up. Say something that'll just ruin the day.

    This could be one of my problems, after so long I've grown acustomed to my somewhat never ending unhappiness - making me fearful of getting help.

    Meh, who knows.

    I think it's easier to survive when happy. The old adage is true that it's better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all.

    it's almost better to be in constant fluxes of sadness with sprinkles of happiness, because to let yourself be truly eventually seems to be an illusion. looking back on it, it'll start to seem like a lie or a dream.

    i just want to live in reality. even if it sucks.

    Happy with sprinkles of sadness. I'd like to say apathetic, but that means nothing will get done and then I'll get depressed anyway.

    Feel nothing at all so i'm not affected in any way.
    Getting quite at it, really become numb about most everything and everybody in the world, though I've gotten really good at it no it's not the right thing to do, not sure how to change it or if I do want to change it.:blink:

    I'm strongly bipolar and my moods can switch in an instant, and often.

    But I like being happy. It might (and probably will) be taken away soon, but it's nice to have now.

    I chose "feel nothing at all so i'm not affected in any way" because if I just don't feel anything about a situation, its easier for me. I'm getting to where I just feel crappy about everything though to prevent disappointment. I'd still much rather just feel nothing though. Emotions are evil. =_=
