I'm happy. Letting the feeling be

Now I know that happiness was never expected of me.


I feel it was expected of me and I failed


are you on an ssri maybe? serotonin is the happiness neurotransmitter, a complex interplay between this and others can lead to contentment. I haven’t quite got the mix right, haven’t felt contentment in a number of years

Might as well allow some happiness in your life. Why not? It don’t hurt.

I’ve read that just forcing yourself to smile can make you happy if you practice it
