I was an atheist too.. and I tried all the other methods of being happy, and I finally realized that none of them worked for me. It was hard for me to visualize myself as being part of something higher, when I didn't have a clear understanding of what that something higher was.

So I changed myself into a believer - purely because it helped me mentally to trust in a person.

But everyone has a different path. There are other non-believers who seem to be quite ok.

I think its possible to take the essence of what you said, no matter what your beliefs - that we are all the children of something greater than our individual parts, and worthy of love - especially our own.
