Think of all the reasons you have to be happy
all the good that you have in your life.
This is said to me from time to time
Usually in the darkest of the dark times
When the depression and PTSD are
both doing their worst; the suicidal depths.
My dog is happy all the time it seems to me.
She has and needs no reason to be happy
She just is; full of the sheer joy of living.
I wish I could be happy for no reason
To not be required to think of them
That kind of happiness cant be taken away.
