We are told that we should be happy all the time and if we’re not then we need to find something to change our mood. We won’t allow ourselves to have a bad day or a bout of sadness without stressing out and feeling like there’s something wrong with us. Being numb and spaced out means that you’re missing out on living in the moment and the times that I tried various substances I found that they kept me from feeling anything good or bad. Make your own happy moments and if you’re facing a stressful situation then think about how good you’ll feel when it’s over as opposed to medicating yourself to get through it!
