In reply to DOES HAPPINESS EXIST OR IS IT JUST AN ILLUSION???, posted by Angel Girl on May 7, 2002, at 0:54:48
> To me happiness and love are illusions. Do they really exist??? And if so, why don't I ever find them???? What is so wrong or bad about me that I've never had them???? I guess I don't deserve them. If this is God's will for my life, then I guess I'm missing the whole point of why I'm even here. :(

There isn't anything bad or wrong about you. Here are some words of support you
offered another just a few days ago:
>>> I think we want to desperately believe that it's not always going to be this way.
We want to believe that someday we will be well. We hang on by a mere thread and
look for that faint glimmer of hope that life has something more to offer us. Don't give
up. Hang on. You won't always feel this way. Someday, somehow something is going
to happen and you'll find your way. I can't promise you it will be easy but we're all here
to help you. I wish I could offer you more help. I don't know what else to say. I need
help right now too. Please keep posting. <hugs><<<<
Now is not the time to mull over whether or not happiness exists. Worry about that one when you are over this latest 'bump' in the road of fighting mental illness. You do deserve happiness and love. For now simplify. Scream out for support. Folks on these boards sure do seem to hear the cries for help.
Keep on writing. You are valuable, worthy, and kind. I have surmised that from the
few posts of yours I have come across.
Tackle the existential questions later. For now just keep on hollering out for help until
you get some that makes sense to you.
I believe in you AG.
