ok - maybe I should qualify that.
For the most part I am real cool with the happiness thing. I did 4 years of therapy about 7 years ago. The thing that has finally made (almost) everthing go away, is that I have been writing music and have finally (after 23 years of trying & failing) dedicated myself to making my living from it. After that decision, and getting into music college, ALL THAT SHIT has fallen away. Except for one. Romantic intimacy. of which, read more below!
The reason this board is all about depression, mood, & trouble is because it is, as someone said, as "safe place". Here we can let out all the 'shameful' 4 stuff, those weaknesses that we have to keep hidden, the things that make us different, wounded, apart. Here, since no-one knows us, and since we are mostly 4s we can let this stuff out and know that we will not be judged (not too much, at least)
I also think that when we are happy, we don't come here. We don't need to. That's why this board is so focused on the 'down' stuff.
