No, I don't think I've been "happy" for over 10 years now. At least, not counting some short-term moments of happiness where I just feel good for 15-20 minutes and then start feeling like **** again.

"So many resources keep me alive
Yet I don't even step outside
So many sacrifices keep me alive
Yet I don't even bother to survive."

"If you think we waste too much then you can sacrifice yourself
Don't push your values
Push your values
Onto the crowd."

Sometimes yes, sometimes no, depending on my mood. This is showing I have a significant mood variability.

For example, yesterday I was having a generally good day and was happy to be alive. Today I'm already "meh" about existing.

Here will be displayed an assortment of various thoughtful quotes that I enjoy. The list will grow as I discover more.
-"The whole problem with the world is fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people always so full of doubts." -Bertrand Russell
"If you take away my devils, you take away my angels too." -Friedrich Nietzsche.
“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel” -Steve Furtick

Through socially interacting with others we learn a lot about ourselves, our strengths, our weaknesses, what interests us, what we don't find so interesting. We also learn how to best express ourselves, how to bring the best out in others, and it helps us to develop and grow as people. This is a great Forum for sharing, expressing and getting involved. It's great because we all struggle with Social Anxiety, so we have a good understanding of each other, and we're unlikely to sit in judgement. In short it's a great place to seek help and support, and to share what's on our minds, past and present struggles, and also the triumphs. We all have something to learn from each other, so let's start learning. PS: May I ask how you are right now, is there anything bothering you? Talking and getting things off our chests often makes the world of difference to how we feel...

These are just my thoughts/opinions, I am not a Doctor/Health Professional etc. so please draw your own conclusions.

More often than not, yes. Even if it's just a little bit more than 50%. Today? Hell's no.

I can't remember the last time I was truly happy. I usually feel miserable and frustrated myself and my life situation. A few times a month maybe there's days where I feel "alright", where I'm somehow able to push the negative thoughts aside a little better. That doesn't mean my problems no longer exist but for some reason on some days it doesn't bother me as much. The last time I was happy and worry-free with myself, my current life situation and where my life is going must have been when I was a child.

Some days I am. Other days I wish I didn't have to deal with waking up everyday. It honestly depends.

I'm grateful to be alive

But I'd be okay if I never existed

I wouldn't use the term alive or dead.

I'm not happy that people are mentally ensalved into a program.

Never had a career, never had an income, never had a girlfriend, regardless of how many times I tried. The people have the same mentality, perception and belief about me since I was a child. The people behavior and communication induces my social anxiety and depression.

The A.I Computers/NSA engineers use a computational intelligence system to design a mentality by translating key information/cryptographic keys into thoughts, logic, and emotions that are fake to manage humanity 24/7.

Big yes. I think most of that has something to do with the fact of the internet age we're living in. 90% of the things I'm passionate about, like writing and other arts, can be done alone or through a computer. Most of the time I can control the amount of social interactions I have.

Nah, I think nothing would change whether I had or hadn't been born. In fact, I even think people around me would be better off without me.

I'm somewhere in the middle. I'm glad I could experience existence for myself, but right now I'm struggling to see a fulfilling future for myself. I'd be fine if I found out that I'd be dying in only a few short years.

When will the time come when we feel complete?

I'd rather be alive than dead, but honestly I can't say that I am HAPPY to be alive. How can I, when my existence hurts me so much on a daily basis, and when I have regressed socially time and time again, and with almost no hope of any improvement in the future.

Most times I am happy to be alive... Sometimes i'm scared and don't know how to solve something but I realized a few months ago that, everything that happens in our life, has a purpose... Never hurt yourself please, it hurts us!

Your skin is not paper, so don't cut it.
Your face is not a mask, so don't hide it.
Your size is not a book, so don't judge it.
Your life is not a film, so don't end it...
