Jesus & Happy

4/2/12

Jesus,

Did anyone tell you what happiness is? That you had a right to feel it? I’m pretty sure the knowledge/awareness of “happy” and the expectation that I should or should be able to feel it are fucking me up.

Have people always expected to feel happy? What if feeling awful is the default? If I was okay with feeling awful my life would be much better. Is this an American thing? I do NOT feel happy.

One thought on “Jesus & Happy

  1. I think it is an American thing. Our country is built on outward perfection. Your marriage could be falling apart but…Smile….You’re in crazy debt…Smile….Judge others for showing sadness, although you feel worse then them…Smile.
