It doesn't feel real - February 4th 2010, 10:34 PM

Being happy just doesn't feel real. And it makes me feel so horrible. I've been feeling the happiest this week than I have for months, and I have reason to. So my friend told me to just cling on to this feeling and not let it go, but I almost want to, because I feel like I'm getting my hopes up for something that won't last. I don't know what to do or if I should tell someone.

Has anyone else ever felt like this?

I understand exactly what you mean, and I know a bunch of people who feel that way, too. You should realize though that happiness is a gift, and that you should never keep yourself from being happy out of fear that it won't last. Enjoy it while you have it - there is nothing wrong with being happy. It's actually a really good, fun emotion.
And sure, you probably will have times when you aren't so happy, but that doesn't mean that you're getting your hopes up for nothing; understand that, true, you might not always be happy, but sometimes you will be happy, and you should enjoy those moments as much as possible. It's much better to go outside on a sunny day, and come inside when it starts to rain, then to stay inside the entire time.

I'm the same exact way. I will start to feel happy, and then when I do, BAM! Something comes, and messes up the happiness. It's like, you depend on a situation to make you happy. That's just not right. Us humans should be able to feel happy 24/7, and have it not be situational. Crappy thing is, not all of us can, because some of us have chemical/situational depression. You just got to believe that this happiness is there for a reason, and do things that keep you happy so it won't go away! I know EXACTLY how you feel, but just try your hardest to do what makes you happy so the feeling doesn't drift away, although I do get what you're saying. Happiness doesn't seem to be real, but deep down inside it's there just waiting to pop up!

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now.

Dreamin'. Ohhhhhh. Of fallin'.
