I feel that happiness is something that many search for until you can make yourself. You cannot find it anywhere else right?

I can't say that I am extrememly unhappy because I have my days where I can smile constantly. My children make me happy. My husband leaves alot for work maybe every other week and he's gone now for 6 weeks. At this moment I am unhappy he's gone but It could be much worse, and it would be if I wasn't pregnant and didn't have a 2 year old daughter. They help me get threw.  I would be much happier in life if my husband had a different job where he was home at night time, or was only gone a day or two. The thought of him trying to find a new job so our marriage doesn't suffer from it makes me happy.

I don't KNOW what makes me happy. I just don't feel like doing anything! How do you find something to do that you like that genuinely makes you happy? I have all of my needs taken care of, and pretty much all of my wants also. But I am just sitting here bored to death with no clue of what to do with my time.

 Still trying to finish up all of the mess frojm my husband of 35 years abandoning me after stealing my mother's money and the money and home she put in trust for me.  3 years now and he is still making life a living hell.  You tell me how to deal with an egotistical man with power, lawers, judges and people who fear him preventing justice.

I would be happier if my husband and I could "truley" be on the same page with the our kids. When he works as much and the crazy hours he works, it's hard for him not to just "FIX" things... which underminds me as a stay at home mom... /sigh.. so frustrating!

Since moving to a new state several years ago I have been unable to make friends. Prior to the move I had several women who I considered close friends. I miss those  type of friendships and interactions and feel as though my lack of friendships contributes greatly to my overall unhappiness with my life. How do I change or fix this?

I am moving back to Memphis soon where I dont have many friends either but honestly I enjoy it better.It seems like less drama.

how common is it for people to not change out of their pajamas if they have NO plans to leave their home all day?

How would I get the step children to do as I ask, and not to teach the younger kids to do things that are wrong, and get them into trouble?  This is the only thing in my life that has interrupted my happiness.... I know that this is a life long problem between step kids and step Moms but I would love to have a cohesive  family and not one that seems to be two sided....

I think i would be happier if i could "get over" my former boyfriend. and the experience of seeing him through a life vs death illness that was. very traumatic for me. How do i go about that?
