I don't know about everyone else but it's like, even when i think i should be happy i never feel fully content. If everything goes right i think "well it won't be like long till something goes wrong". Or else i think, how can it be right to be happy when so many have nothing or are in war torn countries.

Christmas time makes me think of Christmases past when my parents were alive. I sometimes think i was only truly happy when i was little. Having children is one big worry in case something happens to them.
Anyone else like this it am i just a self centred misery. Sorry for being such a barrel of laughs. sad
