05:46 pm - Hmph
Quite a lot of annoyances, today. Mostly involving work-type stuff, the job hunt, and government agencies. What a lot of rot.

And naturally it was today that I started my period. Heh.

Thought for the day: Isn't it odd how easy it is for us to be afraid to be happy?
Current Mood: blahblah

Afraid to be happy? I don't see that. Unless it's related to the idea that Seriousness is a virtue.

Maybe it's different personality types or something, but I've seen--sometimes in myself, and sometimes in others--a propensity to cling to unhappiness, to hurts and misunderstandings, to "nothing can be done/nothing will be done/nothing is being done." And not depression, but a... clinging to the status quo?

I expect it's not fear of happiness as such, but fear that happiness, once embraced, can be taken away. Can be, in that sense, a weakness?

Hmmm. If it were me, it would be depression.

Perhaps, then, we have different definitions of depression. For me, there appears to be a difference between something one literally *can't* get out of (because of situation or brain chemistry or what have you--whether you're stuck or are processing through it), and something that you choose to remain in.

But maybe I consider my free will to be more powerful than most people would, in these days of pervasive psychology. :)
