My life is going really well.
So why am I still sad.
Things aren't perfect but they're getting there. I have things that I never thought I would get, and yet, deep inside, I'm still stressed out, worried, and sad.
I want to enjoy live, I want to be free from this worry monster that lives on my back constantly. How do I defeat it?
This sounds like depression. And depression is so much more than being sad. It is the constant shadow weighing you down and hanging over your shoulder.
Hold onto the good things in life. Focus on them. You will get through this!
And if your feelings aren't changing or taking over, talk to your doctor.
Okay I forgot I posted that link.. probably not a good idea to follow much of my advice, or at least not the advice given in the article above.
Soooo what exactly do you worry about? I mean a little bit of worry is actually a good thing. I never worry about anything and it seems to cause me troubles because I don't address problems in my life that I should be dealing with. On the other hand if you worry so much that it keeps you from enjoying things I guess you need some help.
A doctor could hook you up with some Valiums or Xanax to help you relax and ease your mind, but in my experience anti-depressants cause more problems than they cure.
Lots of people get a calming feeling from religion. A faith in the Lord and prayer really do wash worries away, maybe you should try going to church and talking to a preacher. Lots of them are really good at helping people with personal problems. Some of them are perverts too though, but there are pervs everywhere. I'm not convinced there are any more in the clergy than in any other occupations.
Falling in love is always a good way to get a warm happy feeling inside. Are you in a relationship? That might help more than anything... or maybe just call your mom. My mom always made me feel a thousand times better.
Life is garbage and there is nothing on this benighted little world that will actually make you happy. Life is suffering, and the death of our lives is the end of suffering. Ask any Buddhist.
I believe you're sad now, even though you have some relative success, because deep down you know everything is just another hoop to jump through to obtain the supposed 'success.'
Everything that we consider a success seems to have some financial commitment associated with it doesn't it? Think about it, your nice car, your nice home, anything you can have that resembles 'success' is expensive and only makes you commit to spending more of your time and money on it.
This is how the system is set up. To turn you into a slave via finances.
If it weren't an official tool used to control and manipulate you using your hopes and fears, I believe it would actually be officially defined as a form of slavery. And if we were not into having slaves, it would actually be written into law as slavery and made illegal. But we are into having slaves. We, the slaves, just haven't realized it somehow.
Did you know the official view by American government links how much money you have with how much freedom you have?
As an American, I thought being American meant that you had freedom. But my federal government has taught me in an official government endorsed learning course, that we're not. There is in fact, very little freedom in our country.
How many hoops have you had to jump through to obtain your 'success' just out of curiosity?
I bet a lot!
How much of your life do you feel is actually yours? Or has it become 'theirs?'
If it's not yours,
Yeah we're all slaves to the 26 billionaires that own half of the planet.
It's not how big your house is, it's all about how happy your home is... even if someone else owns it. Work on that.
LOL I imagine that's probably what they used to say about how much freedom you had if you were black when slavery was legal lol..."it's not how much freedom we have it's what we do with the cards we've been dealt"
Now that a lot of us are against it they just came after us too and did it through our money. As long as the country officially equates how much money you have with how free you are it's the same thing.
