I don't know what it is, but some people just can't see it. They don't see all the opportunities in their daily life or all the gateways to happiness. They seem to see everything through a pair of negativity glasses, where everything turns into sadness. They can't seem to appreciate anything.
And at the same time, here I am, noticing every little wonderful detail. I create my own happiness when everything else sucks, instead of complaining and making it all worse. That is seriously the key to everything you want. Because when you start to pay attention to the good instead of the bad, life will get better. The hard things won't seem that hard, because if you always look at it from the bright side, it sure does look a lot brighter. And I'm not saying that you shouldn't cry over things, or be angry. Because you should, otherwise you won't be able to be happy. If you don't cry it'll stack up inside of you instead, and the same with anger and whatever else you might be feeling.
Yes, it probably sounds so overrated, but think about how many times YOU complain about things in your everyday life. "Oh no, I missed my bus and have to walk to school." What the hell, really. You get to walk and see things from another perspective, you get to have some time for yourself before school and you'll get happier because of the endorphins. Do you get what I'm saying now? All the little negative thoughts you think is affecting you.
There are a lot of things to be angry over in the world, big things, but those are the only things you need to worry about. You don't need to worry about that test or those words you heard someone say to you - because it doesnt matter in the ends. What matters is that you're happy, doing the things you want to do, and not what that negative, insecure voice in your head wants you to do.

Oh well, this post turned out quite long, but if you're still with me - thank you for reading my article, I hope it helped and make sure to send a message if you want to talk about anything.
