It Is Okay To Be Happy--Right?

Do any of you suffer from the Charlie Brown Syndrome? Sometimes I feel like I do. Why is it that we do this to ourselves? Can't we be happy inside even if stuff happens. Is it okay to be happy when bad things are going on?

I think we do this to ourselves because we are human and maybe lack faith. Or it could be ole what' his no-face(satan) that helps it along. Yes, it is okay to be happy regardless of what is going on. I think it will help make the tough times easier to get through if we are happy inside.

Due to things at work I haven't felt happy for a while. But somethings have changed at work and now I feel renewed and much happier. I love the feeling. I just get like Charlie Brown sometimes and loose my nerve to be happy. Or could it be that I don't know what to do with it?

You know what? I am going to feel this way because it beats the other way and now I know how strong I am because I got through 7 years of having a bad boss.

So, watch out world, I'm coming! Don't worry, be happy.

That is certainly true. Sometimes it's kind of hard to do. I worked for a school district for many years, (in the school nurses office)so I know what the first week of going back to school is like. Have fun! Mimi

You describe our worry over happiness very well...All we can do is just day by day.

Having a bad boss is really hard. After all that time, you DESERVE some happiness!

I catch myself feeling this way often. It's sad and unfair! I agree with you completely, you can make yourself feel better. More than anyone else can! You might try this book that I read, it was so helpful. It's called "The Happiness Project." I took away so many great things from this woman's experiement but the fundamental thing I learned was "act how you want to feel."

I've heard from my teacher friends that having a hard boss can really make a difference. I have one friend who is in therapy because of her boss.

So this year has got to be better!

It's been a bad, bad week or so, and I've found myself in just this position - even things that should make me happy aren't enough. Why??? I need to remember this lesson. Ever the teacher, you've taught me something important tonight ... :)

I used to have the Charlie Brown syndrome, I really did... Then, for some reason, it just went away! Lately I have been having *the* worst luck in the world, but somehow I manage to keep my spirits up and stay happy in spite of it. I wish I could tell you how, but the only thing I can think of is great friends and a new cheerful mindset! Hope that helps.
