If you're happy and you know it

Wisdom from Dilbert.

Marriage won't make you happy. You have to do that on your own. You can never let your happiness depend on the actions of somebody else because you can never choose their actions. Sure, being single sucks some times, a lot of times. But that doesn't mean you get to be all depressed and woe is me about it. Depressed, boring, uninteresting people are never attractive.

For all the trouble Dilbert has with his dating life, at least he's got that point figured out.

I suppose that is true... so at least for the moment I am cursed.
Too many years of being alone and of frustrating dating has turned me bitter and resentful.
I was a very joyful, happy, jubilant woman... but I just can't take it any more. Especially after putting so much effort into a relationship that didn't amount to anything more than a pile of empty of beer cans.

I wish I didn't feel like I deserve more. But I wish the people that I used to think loved and cared for me would act like I deserve better than what I've got.

There's a definite difference between having moments where you don't like your situation and expecting someone else to make it all better.

Sister Kristen Oaks said something like "Who's to say you'll be happy being married, if you're not happy being single"
