    I can't really remember the last time I was really, truly happy with life. I'm not suicidal I don't think, but things never seem to last long enough

    What I think about this is that we really enjoy the happy times, so they go by as normal, but when we're having difficulties it drags on and drags on because we just want to get out of it. So by comparison, it feels like you've had a much longer amount of horrible time than you did happy time. As for if you've looked at the actual amount of time you've been happy or not and there's still a huge difference, it probably has to do with choices and whatnot. I don't know, this is just my take on it.

    It's unsustainable. What goes up most come down.

    it also depends on how you CHOOSE to experience a moment.

    Alex: That's an interesting way to look at it :)

    CS: It appears so

    Boss: That is true too

    bb: I'm not one for taking drugs personally, but to each his/her own.

    Happiness is fleeting and that makes it remarkable. People don't appreciate what they have in overabundance.

    Idk. Time has passed and nothing really changed. I'm seeing someone for help because of my depression. The sessions are great don't get me wrong, and I really like my therapist, but sometimes the sessions feel kinda awkward because I only see her every two weeks and a lot doesn't always happen every two weeks. My happiness is as I said, always short lived, and the majority of the time I'm either sad, angry, or I don't feel anything. Like anything at all. Is this all in my head? I don't know what to think.
