Problems cannot be solved using the same level of thinking that created them. We must try something different. Gently, we turn your challenges into opportunities for healing.

you wil be OK I promise you just need to find a passion it will come when you Least expect the passion to come! one day you will be happy ok never give up hope It is good to write things down because all emotions serve a purpose Even emotions that we don't believe are truly there They feel empty but believe it or not emptiness is still an emotion It still has a driving force, a meaning behind it You will feel happiness in something someday when you feel content in yourself I have been in this place and thought nothing, nothing would give me pleasure But once I was happy in one aspect of life, and i had to try very hard I eventually found simple things more enjoyable

It sounds like you are feeling really numb or depressed right now. It's not easy to feel that way. I can imagine it would also be frustrating to feel like you can't find happiness in anything, but you are not alone in feeling like that. I don't think there is an easy "why" or "why not" to it, a number of factors such as depression, work stress, mental health, diet, or chemicals in the brain can affect your mood. You can reach out to a doctor and/or a listener here to talk more about managing your emotions and self care during this time.
