"If you want to be happy, just be happy? That’s like saying: if you don’t want to have cancer, just don’t have cancer. You can’t control being sad as much as you can control being happy. Think about it, if someone tells a joke and you laugh out of pure joy, you’re laughing because your brain is legitimately happy. If you feel like shit and think you should die, that is your brain telling you that you are sad. It’s not a conscious decision to be happy or sad and if you think it is then you are lying to yourself."
