I don't think that therapy makes me feel lonely. I see it as a pressure valve, a way of keeping me on even keel. As time goes on, it's less central to my life in terms of constant thought and the like. It's absolutely central to my life in providing the stability to do as much as I can in the rest of my life.

I don't know that there's anything external that could make me "happy", or even anything internal. I'd love to have enough money fall into my lap that I could quit work while still being able to pay for the essentials that my work pays for (essentials being relative, I suppose - like therapy). I'd love to feel happy with my appearance, though I suppose that's in my power, so I'd love to have the self control and willpower to lose weight, exercise, etc.

But I think I've figured out that wherever I go and whatever I do, I take me with me. And I think that sometimes I'm happy and sometimes I'm not, and that's just the way things are. And that my happiness set point is a bit lower than many people's. Maybe I could wish for a higher happiness set point?
