Appearing to be happy can be a mask where people hide/cover pain and suffering. Depression (repressed rage) and breakdowns are common when unhappiness is masked behind a false happiness facade. If we are unhappy it is essential that we acknowledge it. This is an emotion and not who you are. Enter into a personal process to find out what is creating unhappiness; take responsibility for it and create a consequence to your liking (rather than blaming it on someone else). Happiness is more effectively achieved through knowing what is making you unhappy rather than seeking happiness.
