Dear People Who Are Always Happy: Is It Real?

I don’t understand people who are always happy! I had a roommate in college that was always happy and positive about life. I once asked her if she’s ever been truly sad, depressed, or angry. Her response was a simple, “No.” I was convinced she was lying. How can you be so happy? 

Don’t get me wrong, I am genuinely happy at times. However, I also do have bouts of anger and depression. I know my anxiety disorder plays a lot into that, but even without it I doubt I would be ALWAYS happy. 

So are these people just putting on a show? And if they are really always happy then I want to know their secrets. I can’t help but think that if I was happier all the time my life would be way easier. 

Maybe I’m just being jealous of happy people.
