    The beach is a wonderful place to be, it is a happy and serene place in my eyes. Do what you think needs to be done to feel happy........ Feel your inner child, make sand angels, eat 3 ice creams in a row, get completely soaked in the sea with your clothes on. Try thinking outside the box, step out of your comfort zone, it might just do the trick

    I know what you mean completely and truly.

    I had such a beautiful moment yesterday, I wont bore you with the details but I was having this beautiful moment and all of sudden I felt anxious and this thought of what is the point popped into my head and I couldn't get rid of it.

    Today I have had an awful day. Really bad, worst in a long time.

    I hate looking at something beautiful and inside feeling like I don't care or thinking what is the point or being at an event and everyone is laughing and enjoying themselves so you are smiling and laughing but you dont even know what the conversation is about because inside you are somewhere else entirely, well lets be honest, you are in hell inside your own head.

    I play a game now and try and work out who else is playing the fake smiling game. Because the stats say 1 in 4 of them is. It is a distraction if nothing else.

    Your joy will come back and feeling it will shock you. Try not to panic it away again but accept it and go with it. I keep scaring my joy away because when it pops up, my head goes whooaaa there what the hell is this feeling... then is disappears.

    I would strongly disagree with some of the other comments that ask you to think that life is too short and that others are worse off. Beating yourself up with such thoughts is only going to make you worse and keep you in a low place.

    Just keep looking and there you will find it, hidden but not gone. Honest

      Thank you so much. I pray a lot and try to stay strong. I do go to counseling and have some amazing mentors. It's so much going on that it scares me yes other ppl do have it worse and i pray for them. I feel like I'm ruining my family and i cry when i look at my daughter because i want to see her grow up graduate from college get married and have kids and i want more kids. I get sad watching everyone else enjoying themselves and laughing and smiling. Ppl tell me push through and i do I'm a conqueror, but sometimes it's hard playing the im ok it's fine game.
