All you’ll get is frustration.
I wish you the best Pig!
Sounds like Pig wants to strap on the Happy Helmet.
It is a known fact that about your own emotional state, you CAN influence your mood by putting your face into the appropriate expression. Want to be happy? Smile. Even if it feels fake. Want to be calm? Keep a straight face. Want to be angry or sad? (why??): You can put yourself in those moods too with your facial expression.
(Does not work when your external environment overrides your choice of mood)
Were it not for sad, one would never know happy…
It’s a good effort, Pig! We all want you to be happy.
Pig, go to the refrigerator. The cheese is calling you.
me too, pig
Adopt an attitude of gratitude.
They say more suicides happen when people are on the upswing. They have no energy when they’re down. The idea is to keep yourself down so you don’t go on an upswing because it’s safer that way.
“What good is happiness, if it’s just a state of mind?” Jim White, “Handcuffed to a Fence in Mississippi”
“I knew she could make me happy,happy,HAPPY! " (The Rain, the Park, and Other Things, the Cowsills)!
The opposite can be true if you tell yourself that you are unhappy, disappointed, sad and angry about it.
Then go out and be happy, Pig. Go for it.
watch the vid… you CAN’T watch it and not feel up-beat afterwards
It’s been a long time since I’ve been happy, but I am glad quite often.
Hope is not a strategy.
If you’re Happy, aren’t you supposed to clap your hands?
Happy happy joy joy! Happy happy joy joy!
true happiness lies within
Happiness is overrated. I prefer dread, conflict and loneliness. That way no disappointments!
“If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife.”
Affirmations. Supposed to have some effect, oddly enough. Not sure I believe it but interesting to think about.
This strip makes me all happy…
No, but you can make it happen through action.
Pig should be happy; he’s not all covered in ink as he usually is when he’s writing.
Don’t worry, be happy
Pig doesn’t get he can make his own happiness!
But happiness is a warm puppy.
Happiness is a choice. Most people choose to ignore the happiness that is in their lives, and look to what they perceive to be the happiness in other peoples lives.
see today’s BC as an example.
Happiness is often proportional to how clueless you are to things going on in the world.
You think you are happy and you are happy, that’s what you’re happy for.
No wonder Pig is not happy, there is no female in the gang…
Get a warm puppy, Pig.
AGAIN?!? PIGGY. YOU KNOW THIS ONE: eat cheese, watch television and play RELAXING games! (First Person Shooters are NOT relaxing.) I know you hate it, but I suggest some exercise too. Now that I exercise regularly, I CRUSHED my “chronic fatigue” from my TBI!!!
Reading the newspaper can be depressing, but I notice that when reading a funny comic a chuckle and a smile helps me feel happy, at least for a minute or so.
Worth a try.

Well, THAT IS what the Psychobabbles say.
A not too recent fad. Big on afternoon talk shows.
It’s not having what you want, it’s wanting what you’ve got. (Sheryl Crow)
I believe Scott Adams did this when he was starting ‘Dilbert’.
I’m officially not allowed to be happy by decree from The Universe. Any time I’ve ever started to get happy/have a good thing happen to me something bad happens within a week. If I won the lottery, the world would end.
Sorry, Pig; doesn’t work that way. Nice, big script, though….
Pig is making himself more miserable by way of his desperate attempt to be happy.
“Let me get the stay put hat and raincoat!”
Dream on, Pig.
