“ I start to think there really is no cure for depression, that happiness is an ongoing battle, and I wonder if it isn't one I'll have to fight for as long as I live. I wonder if it's worth it. ”

Take responsibility of your own happiness, never put it in other people's hands.
You are in charge of your own happiness; you don't need to wait for other people's permission to be happy.
I finally understood what true love meant...love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.
Is there a difference between happiness and inner peace? Yes. Happiness depends on conditions being perceived as positive; inner peace does not.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
