Happy vs Unhappy
Some people are just inherently unhappy people. And nothing will ever satisfy them, and there is nothing anyone can do to help them. My heart honestly aches for them because I know that feeling all too well.
I’d like to think I’ve climbed up from and am still climbing away from being in that place. But being there for so long, I can finally recognize it from the outside. (I was married to one of those “perpetual victims” for a long time. You know the type; the entire world exists simply to screw them over.) Either way, seeing it more clearly…. It’s so weird and it’s just painful to see.
If you’ve never been there it’s terribly hard to understand, and so easy to just say “get over it already.” But some people just enjoy being unhappy, and until they find it on their own, there’s really not much you can do.
I knew all along I was one of those people for a long, long time. I didn’t i>want /i> to be unhappy, but I sure didn’t do much to change it. I stayed in that ever comfortable rut. It was what I knew, it was all I knew. But now that I’ve climbed out, I want to keep shouting at the people still down there, “Get up!!! Holy **** it’s nice up here!! Seriously, you gotta check this out!” My soul aches for these people.
