I feel that sometimes. Some people never understand so I try my hardest to not worry about people and find ways to make myself happy. Sometimes it hard. Like really hard to find the light in a dark place.
I guess, what we miss in life is a purpose. If we seek to be happy and fulfill our wishes, we might probably will never be happy because our wishes are endless. We seek one thing, we get and then there is another. Probably, what makes our lives more meaningful is a purpose, a purpose to live by. It could be the community for someone, it could be God for someone, it could be art for someone, it could be nation. Once we are able to live by something meaningful, everything else doesn't matter much I guess
