Happiness isn’t a one answer solution to all life's most complicated problems, but it can be help make solving them much easier. Deep down inside, what you focus on is what makes you happy.

To paraphrase what Abe Lincoln once said...happiness is a choice.

If you have a bad day and you're only focusing on that, then obviously you will stay downtrodden It’s definitely a lot easier said than done to be happy but usually an exercise I like to do when I’m upset is to ask myself “What is something I can be happy about right now.”

There is always something to be happy about, and even then you can still be happy about being alive. Victor Francal, a Holocaust survivor has shown that's possible.

I may not know you personally, I may not know what you're struggling or what you've been through.

We can all agree deep down through that one point in our life we’ve been in a dark place, a place where we thought that no one loved us, maybe you're in such a place now. I want you to know that you aren’t alone no matter what and that it is ok to feel the emotions your feeling.

My heart goes out to you and maybe things aren't as bad as you perceive them. If I may I’m going to try and help you in the only way I know how. With possible reasons as to why based on zodiacs.

These are the reasons you may feel not pleased with your life, based on zodiac sign.
