Happy and successful people makes me depressed?

I feel like I'll never be in that state I'll just be jealous of them... I avoid happy people pretend they are not there... I wont bring them down but I don't want to see them either

Make yourself happy then, you are a really nice person and don't worry about other happy people, how do you know they are really happy anyway. Just make yourself happy ☺️☺️☺️

I am taking that you are a really young person. Try to get outside in nature- and maybe volunteer a little. In the USA Memorial Day is on Monday- honoring the soldiers who were lost in present and past wars. Perhaps - if there is a parade or a ceremony near you- you can attend.

Hi rather than ignoring happy people you would do far better to be around them for two reasons. One is in observing happy people you might be able to find out how to be happier yourself.

The second is that positive vibes rub off on us all and it might make you feel a bit more positive. x

Ok thanks for the advice

I would feel jealous when I see people getting new houses, cars, etc. I now try to feel happy for those people and then the jealousy goes away.

You are an artistic person. Do you play a musical instrument? If not, maybe try to learn one. I have played guitar for many years and I get out of my head when I play.

I used to play the piano now I don't got bored of it lol

I have felt like this for a while and what has helped me is to take time away and rediscover you. Start learning what inspires you, then chase after those things. Make sure to take time to work on you, it’s so important! Hope this helps 💜

👌ok

Sorry you feel like that. Remember most people are not "happy" all of the time. Instead of avoiding others- try to get to the root of what is bothering you so much about "them." Do something nice for yourself, and be kind. to YOU>

Ok thanks 😘 still searching what I like. Living with controlling parents makes you confused about what you like..😂😂

I can't give you advice- I thought you were a young person. I wonder if it would help if you gave yourself a break-even old people are not stagnant and can go for various interests. Perhaps you could also ask yourself " How would I feel if I had no parents?

Its fine thanks for the help anyway😘

I totally agree! I feel awful for thinking that way.......I'm genuinely happy for them but it just makes me feel worse about myself.
