I have been told by a reader of mine that my posts sound very dark and that perhaps am I in a bad place. Without context, I can very much see how they are dark and dealing with existential issues. The reality is that I post on here when I am very frustrated with myself (bar this post, I am feeling great at the moment!) and so it is a memento of that moment's frustration; but I do not write about the happy parts of my day here. That goes in my daily journal. I have many more happy entries than dark – evidence towards the fact that my expected happiness is above a 5 out of 10. I would rate myself a 6 or maybe even a 7. Do not despair. Darkness will not prevail.
