Can someone turn the happiness on?

Why am i not happy like I used to be? I used to be able to have long happy thoughts and memories, my imaginations full of fun things we could do, have done, should do, so forth. Now it’s hard for me to think happily. Despite myself, I keep hearing a darker voice telling me to see the worst in things. To see the glass as half empty instead of being grateful for the water I’ve been given.

And I should be happy. It’s not from the person I’d originally thought, but I’ve gotten everything I ever wanted in a friend. And all I could do to her is complain about how she’s not the person. I should just cut the crap. I’ve been given a pretty good run for the past weeks and a pretty good run coming up for the holidays.

There are three letters I want to write before the year is out. They’re each to Bianca, Carmaine, Dani and Eunice. I want to thank them, in a lengthy manner. But I don’t even know where to start. Last year Carmaine wrote me 2 simple pages, A5, and in less than 200 words she’d struck the chord, and given me a message I still keep in my wallet. I should be able to do the same. I should be able to write the same kind of things so easily. But I can’t even find the voice that I write with.

Last night I had a long and, let’s face it, depressing conversation with Dani. Well, no. The topic of conversation was depressing, but I felt more relaxed and comfortable and…content than if we were talking about plans for the summer holidays.

There was just one other moment when I was content, and that was when I was at Bee’s house, lying in her lap while she was…trying…to study for History. Just watching the Flinestones and feeling her breathing.

I’m not happy or content unless I’m with someone else, these days. I personally depress myself. I can’t stand the crash back to reality after my dreams end.

De Fluffe, Out.

  1. my aunt’s just realised she’s not happy in her marriage. She’s 48, has two old children, a mediocre job, a husband she despises and she stuck. There’s very little she can do, most of the actions she could take can turn everything she’s lived with for more than 20 years inside out.

    what I’m getting at is, realising you’re not happy is a step towards making yourself happy. The thing is, no one knows you like you know yourself. Only you know what you truly want, and if you can’t have exactly that and you’ve tried everything then accept it and move on because everyone deserves to be happy. so, are you going to find it? It’s up to you.

  2. Find the thing that makes me happy and go for it, or find that I can’t have it and move on?

    That’s the thing. I don’t want to be 48 and be stuck. I have the time and the chances to change it now.
