Will I ever feel happy again?
Watch this 
View More Posts Ignore
The last eight years of my life have been the worst years of my life. That is when everything started to tumble down hill. I have people tell me these are the best years of my life. How can they if I have lost several loved ones who were very close to me? And when I am also taking care of my sick GrandMother? I have faked myself into the I'm happy mood for 7 years now. I still don't know how it truely feels to be happy. Will I ever have that feeling back again?

" Yes, you will feel happy again. Its not going to be easy, you need to focus on yourself and also need to think.

You did all that you could do. There are too many things in this world that we can not control, we need to understand this and focus on what we can do "

" YES YOU WILL BE! There are many, many paths as we are all individuals, and though I am a stranger to you, I am going through my own personal hell right now, and I WILL BE. Don't know how, but little by little every day I know the healing will increase within me, and you as well. Cry if you must at times, but know it's temporary and love and light will come to you! "
