I've always had the problem of not accepting the happiness I receive in life. Why is that? Why can't I just shut up and be happy?

Oh my, Amy. This is a very well written answer to a very difficult question. I appreciate your time to answer this, very good reasons are brought to light.
Thank you, sweet Aubrey. You are a valued friend to me.
You are a valued friend too!! You just had the best answer that I related to. Good job! :)
Wow. That's a great answer, Express. I can definitely see some of those reason being part of my predicament. Thanks for providing your answer!!
Very good answer. I can definitely understand what you mean. It could be an insecurity thing. I have definitely not ruled that out as a reason. Though it's hard to tell where and when the insecurity begins. It's just there...
I appreciate the "tough love" lupine... I try my best to think that way as well.
That's an awesome statement.. though I'm unsure if I feel that way or not.
Thanks a lot for this answer, Johnny. I appreciate it!
Very optimistic, Ed. Thanks for your answer!
Great advice Leah!! I can totally relate to an answer like this!! I do worry once I've found happiness... it's strange, really.
So you don't believe that one can reach a state of perpetual happiness? That is, in any aspect of their life?
No...not really. And, even if someone could...should they? How can someone feel perpetual happiness with so much suffering and sin around them? And, ultimately, how can someone feel perpetual happiness knowing that someday it will come to an end?
Hmm... Good point.
In Haiti, here, I see many individuals able to put the pain behind them and get on with life, facing the next moment, the next day, the next joy or the next sorrow with simple acceptance. I feel humbled.
