People who don't think they deserve to be happy.

Mr. John Mr. John
I just finished a post regarding a discussion, as it relates people who feel they do not deserve to be happy. I was taken back by how many people felt this way. I happen to see a particular post from a woman who lives in Australia. I felt tremendous despair from her. Her post though was not a lot different from others, but I chose to reply to her.

Before I get to what I wrote, let me say that it was done in a hurried manner and is undoubtedly full of grammar errors. I apologize for that, but I want to get past it. Secondly, I feel my thoughts and perspective can be applied to anyone, anywhere. It was not meant to be solely about the location. I just chose the location for illustrative purpose.

It went like this:
I cannot imagine that you deserve to be unhappy. You live in Australia, which is one of my favorite countries. I would suggest you get involved in an outdoor team sport, or group adventure. Go with some friends and explore your country. Here in the United States, many people don't venture outside their own State. Myself, I dived off Cairns at the Great Barrier Reef, seen rain forests, visited Crocodile waters, slid down waterfalls into tranquil pools, visited Steve Irwin’s zoo, visited Ayers rock at sunset, camp and dine under the desert stars, I bought a 5ft. didgeridoo, drank the wine in Adelaide, seen Kangaroo Island top to bottom (absolutely amazing), seen the elusive Platypus, the waterways of Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Brisbane Zoo, a walk-a-bout in the desert, the Twelve Apostles, and fabulous restaurants galore.

My intent was not to give you my travel itinerary, but to convey what wonderful opportunities you have available to you. Find a friend, take a sightseeing tour, anything you can do to be with other people and have an adventure. Make a point to do this on a regular basis. Force yourself if need be. Lookup Ligurian honey bees, Remarkable Rocks, Kelly Hill Caves. Get out and see them. See newly hatched Penguins in the wild, and taste fried cheese from a sheep farm.

Get a calendar, and start planning those sightseeing trips and excursions on a regular basis.

You deserve to be happy, but happiness will not always seek you out. Sometimes you have to look for it. It can be elusive, but it can be found, and I have no doubt that you will find it. THE END


If any of you readers have other suggestions for people who are undeservedly suffering, maybe you could share your thoughts as well. No one should have to suffer. We are a village, and everyone is important.

Wow--I had no idea my discussion would make such a strong impact on someone! I am glad it did, however, because I know from my feelings in the past that everyone needs people to show they care and that the support is very important. Thank you so much for the support you are showing, the care you have for those less happy and for this discussion as well. I have been reading my past journals and this is where the questions are coming from--I was hoping it would open others up to admitting their pain and to accept help form those who give it...

What really helped me was to write one thing per day I liked about myself, one small accomplishment to make for the day and then how I felt at the end of the day....after awhile, I notice my entries were much happier and healthier.

If they have not already, I suggest that everyone should read your post here. Additionally, I wish to credit you fully for the discussion. I thought the subject was so powerful and important that I wanted to address it, and hopefully help expand viewer awareness.
