I've been unhappy for many years now. More recently unhappy enough to think of suicide. I think the last time I was happy I hadn't gone through puberty.
I think there are a lot of reasons I'm unhappy. It could take a while, I don't know how to break it all down. I think it's accurate to say the two biggest sources of unhappiness have been low self-esteem and a total lack of romantic interest.

Things that make me happy: work in progress, working towards school goals, health goals, bettering my relations, improvement in what I think is important, trying anything new, traveling, and getting better about embracing the moment.
Things that make me sad: Getting lost in my mind. Not taking action. Being directionless. Having too high of expectations. Knowing that I sometimes take things for granted, but not knowing how to fix this. And time. There is never enough time.
I waver between the two.

I wouldn't say I'm unhappy; for the most part, I'm content with my life. Yes, there are ups and downs, and there are things I desire that I can't seem to obtain. Generally speaking, however, most issues that trouble my mind are gone after a good night's sleep. As for the things I can't seem to obtain for whatever reason: I try to attain what is achievable and remind myself that time/effort spent on wistful thinking/near-impossible goals is better spent doing something else.
Well, in short, I strive to be a "sensible optimist" regards life.

The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.
