I read articles and posts by various people and lately I’ve noticed several people talking about how happiness is a choice and at first I agreed but now I’m not so sure. When I was depressed I could not simply choose to be happy so I think everyone is really talking about attitude. You can pretend to be happy but I’m pretty sure you cannot choose your emotions. I know I can’t. When I feel a certain way about something I just have to deal with it but I can choose how I deal with it. Also I think telling other people they can choose to be happy is like telling people there is something wrong with them for not being happy. And I don’t think we should look for any other ways to make each other feel bad.
