I try to feel happy, but I can't. I just can't.
If there were a universal answer to this question, I'd love to hear it. It’s so frustrating to continually wait and hope for something better that never comes. The reality is that there are no fast tricks to being happy. If you’re always sad, I’m sure something is wrong; there has to be an underlying reason for why you’re feeling this way. Maybe you just need to allow yourself to cry, and let all your emotions out. I would also suggest getting out and changing your routine to try and get some perspective on everything. My muses are running outside and reading. Find something to do that YOU enjoy. Set goals. Make a list of things you’re looking forward to. Good luck with everything, and I’m here if you need someone to talk or vent to.
This could be part of the problem. A lack of expression often leads to dissatisfaction and pent-up emotions. If you close yourself from other people, that will only make things worse. Although you say you are not depressed, depression is a complex disorder and involves more than just chronic sadness. Psychologists / doctors will not judge you, and if you refuse to talk to anyone else, talking to a professional would be a good move for you.
Flattened affect is a symptom of many different forms of depression. We all feel a bit flat sometimes, and I am by no means saying that you have depression. What I am going to say is that not expressing yourself to others is only going to make matters worse.
A lot of people confuse a lack of happiness for depression. Normally, problems in being happy lie within our appraisals of everyday activities. If we sit back and think everything is boring, then happiness will never emerge. It's a commonsense suggestion, but I would start by constructing a list of things that you 'want' or 'want to do'. Start ticking things off the list and see what impact this has on your mood. If your mood remains neutral / low, then you may wish to talk to a psychologist for a session or two. Flattened affect is a problem in my book, and psychologists have several strategies for addressing the issue. Start off by using the list strategy though.
Sometimes I used to feel sad when I had to much time on my hands. I also used to think too much and my mind would just replay events. Try doing some things you love or get away from what is making you feel sad. A vacation or recharge may help. And it is ok to feel sad. I had people tell me to smile, but if I didn't feel it, I just couldn't. Don't put pressure on yourself. Use the sadness to do something constructive. Get involved in what you want to do with your life. Perhaps you may forget what was making you feel sad in the first placel
Oh yeah, I know! It's just the first thing i thought of. Something is better than nothing though. But If you're trying to be happy than you do want it, huh? So Yeah, kinda applies (:
Pain causes depression , b12 deficiency causes guilty feelings .. eat chocolate and listen to some metallica or black sabbath songs!
First remove "i" that's an ego, than remove "want" that's a desire. See? Now you have happiness ~Buddha.
i dont feel depressed and i dont want to go to the doctor. i dont want anyone to know .
go see a doctor. It could be depression or some other underlying medical condition.
But you won't know, because only a medical professional can diagnose you
Get out of your comfort zone and and do what you love.
