They say that because happiness is a choice. Sadness is a choice. Now it is easier said than done, but it still doesn't change that. When we have
certain external things in our present experience, we allow ourselves to become happy, and falsely attribute the cause of happiness to those things.
We simply allow ourselves to be happy in the presence of them. Some people have nothing or have less yet they are still happy because they choose to
be happy. It is not about having this or doing that. There is no inherent meaning in anything. It is us who decides what has meaning. And if every
moment is a blank slate, waiting to have meaning imparted onto it, then it comes down to you.
I am not saying you should be happy with nothing or with whatever you have, however. We all have our issues in a world which bombards us with
negativity so we buy things, smoke things, drink things, etc. We aren't supposed to escape reality though to fix this. The idea is to shape your
reality the way you want it. You don't have to be talented to do something. You don't have to be a professional or exceptionally skilled at a hobby in
order to be happy. If you can, work a job, spend as little as possible. Save up and go to south America and do ayahuasca. You will not be the same
person afterwards. Do research and find a shaman to do it. Dont just smoke dmt in an apartment or something. You can live in south America for $10-30
a day. If you're female, then you might want to find a shaman in the US instead. But they are here, start online if you're interested. That is a quick
fix to snap you out of it.
Otherwise, you need to keep looking for the right inspiration that will help you on your journey. Dont give up! I've been depressed for years but I've
chosen to redefine depression, and its not so bad. Society labels it bad and drugs you for it, makes you feel like something is wrong with you.
NOTHING IS WRONG WITH YOU. OR ME. OR ANYONE ELSE WHO IS DEPRESSED.Our society is what's wrong. Its not the individual, its the environment. Put me in
a cubicle and ill have go mad. Put me in a truck and I'm much better. Not optimal, but better. Yeah I went to school and got an engineering degree.
But I can't do what I want with it; it's just a piece of paper after all. So I had to find something more compatible with who I am.
There is a lot I can say about this but I realize I can't, not especially without knowing more about you. One suggestion is to go to the internet
archive and download audio files of "Bashar". You can also find some clips on YouTube but internet archive is more comprehensive. Listen to many
things before giving up if at first you don't like it. He is supposedly a channeled being. But that doesn't really matter who or what he claims to be.
Just focus on the information and how it might help you. That's all that matters. He helped me a lot and educated me on a number of things and really
filled in some gaps in my understanding of reality. I played a short clip for a friend and it brought her to tears and even though she has only heard
minutes of it, it changed her outlook and understanding of life etc. Bashar may not do it for you. But the idea is that something or someone might.
You just have to keep trying.
A pill won't save you. It often will only numb the issue and keep you from solving what it really is that plagues you. There has been alot of terrible
advice from people saying to do get medicated that I would stay away from.
Also learn to meditate. It's free and anyone can do it. And it has a very good chance of helping you. It will help you realize things really do come
from within. Yoga can help with that too.
