Maybe someone reading this is not so happy, and needs a hug.

So,

If i might give you some thoughts that could possibly be a new set of "new eyes" for you.

First, life is hard. Its difficult. Life tends to be a test that just keeps on testing, and it can be so tiring.
At one point the Apostle Paul was just sick of it all, and wanted to go and be with Jesus and the Father and the Saints and the Host of Heaven, but He decided to stay here instead as He knew it was "More needful"..really mattered that He stayed, as the "Church" was still brand new and needed Him so much.
But Paul was tired of "life".....the grind...and so, also there is this fact..
"Jesus is touched with the feelings of our sad feelings".
He lived here as a Man, God became ONE OF US.....and so He understands exactly how it feels to be in this world and in this Life.
Your NT says something that you'll probably never hear a preacher preach, but i'll tell you.
It says that "Jesus learned obedience by the things He SUFFERED"... down here.
And that is Jesus the MAN, being on this earth, dealing with LIFE< just like we do, and that is why He is so filled with compassion for us always......that he understands exactly what makes us feel, what we feel.
I live in Israel, and i live sometimes in the States, and ive walked where The Lord has walked, and its HOT in the SUMMER where He always had to walk, where he LEARNED all about TIRED and Thirsty.
Jesus is touched with the feelings we feel, my brothers and my sisters.
Jesus KNOWS your NAME.
God KNOWS your NAME.

Everything we feel,......= God, as Christ has also felt, yet without sinning. And because God is touched by our grief and our pain and our frustrations......we should come to understand that He understands us perfectly when we pray, and He is able to give us comfort where we need it the most.
God gives us grace for LIFE...for these TESTS....regarding the fact that Life is a test.
So, = When you need more Grace, when you need more help from God, then lean on Him more.
Spend more time with Him,.... as His Grace that is His power to lift you up and out of tests and trouble, is more generous and readily available when you spend more time with Him.
Really.

You've heard this...>"god helps those who helps themselves"...? well, thats not really exactly how it works., tho it is true that we function within the natural and God functions within and outside the Natural Realm. It is true that we do all we can, then God takes it from there. Yes, thats true... Its true that God rewards effort, but its also true that end results we leave to GOD.
So, when you want more Help, you give God more of you.
When you need more help, then give God more of yourself.
When you give Him all of you.......ahhh, there is the final answer, isn't it?
Works every time. So its more true to say..>"God helps those who need more help from Him".
Thats actually how Christianity works, for our benefit.
When we are WEAK, then God is Strong in us, for us, and through us.
When we get down on our knees, then God LIFTS US UP.
God makes something out of nothing, and the reality is, as compared to God, we are all quite nothing .......

And , ....everyone has seasons in their life that are not what we would choose, and we are stuck in them.
Take heart, because, everything changes. Life IS Change...and whatever you are feeling that is making you unhappy.....It will change also, so be ready for the next.....as Life is always..the next and the next change, and for the Believer, we have God with us because He is IN US.
So, no matter what, He will always work out whatever is going wrong, and recreate this for us, as a benefit. Every season of time we are going through , if bad, then God will make it a benefit for us....and if Good, then God will make it a benefit for us.
All in time.
God is really good at everything He created, and He created it all.

3 specific things He really does well are :

1.) Redeem the lost for eternity with the Blood of His Son.
2.) Change hard circumstances in our personal lives that we need Him to RESOLVE so that we can have peace again, and hope again, and LIFE again.
3.) Making our dreams a reality.

He is really good at all of these, Saint

Your bible teaches that God "thinks on you"....This means He literally thinks about all of His Children.
US.
And you know this must be true... we know it is, because this is our Heavenly Father, who Gave His Son for us.
We matter to Him....that much.
And let me tell you......there is no love like His that you can find down here, as this is God loving you, and its not like what we find with our family, friends, wife, husband, children, pets.
its better, its bigger, its wider, its deeper, its more fulfilling, and its eternal.
God's love is truly unaffected by our behavior, and is always unconditional.
God is Love.

Also, we are all in it together, all stuck down here, as Believers, waiting for something good that is soon coming.
What is coming is JESUS and us leaving this place with HIM. And we are all going to leave it, if we are born again. But the BEST News is, what is on the other side is not like this place. Its going to be SO GOOD., and it will NEVER EVER END.


Finally,

Let me ask you a question.
Whatever it is that is keeping you from being as happy today as you want to be.. that seems so important to you today.....
Well, in 1,000,000 ...On Million Years from now, you will be alive, and you will be with God and Christ and me, and all the born again believers here,.... and so...A million years from now, as you are enjoying God and all He has for us that we are waiting for....A million years from now, do you think you will care THEN about what it is that you are caring about now?.....Will it matter to you then?
Will it matter to you.......then ? 
Thats something to consider, anytime you find the cares of this life are causing you some pain.

      I have this silly concern and constant worry about my decisions displeasing God. So many of my goals and things I want to do aren’t necessarily Christian based. I like doing things such as watching certain shows that have cussing and sexual content in them....but they are so entertaining....I’ve been told that even the little things I like to do, such as working out, is based on vanity. But I really just love working out because it makes me feel complete. I’m even a little afraid of getting in a relationship because of the fear of feeling something sinful such as lust or immoral thoughts. Back when I was younger, I didn’t mind these things much. But now, I’m at an age where I should know better. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I need to find an inner peace. God Bless.

      My friends, I need your help. I'll do my best not to make this too long, although it is a bit of a story.
      Back in October, I saw a need in my church choir and reached out to a guy that was relatively new and was essentially getting shunned by most of the other men because he has tattoos and his ears are pierced. I actually feel really bad because I waited for a few months after I felt the initial tug and I wonder if I would be struggling so much if I hadn't. Anyway...we clicked almost immediately and soon we were talking practically every day. We are very similar and deal with a lot of the same struggles, such as depression. We've opened up to one another on a level that I've only ever replicated with my two best friends of 13+ years and we can talk for hours without it feeling like any time has passed. He has quickly become a close friend, one that I greatly cherish. 
      My issue is this: I have developed romantic feelings for him, feelings that I'm pretty sure he doesn't return. He is in a relationship at this point and it's a relationship he said he has prayed for, despite that this girl has caused him a lot of heartache. It's hard for me to watch since I don't feel she is good for him and obviously I feel that I am. It's also hard because he is one that will ghost out on the people around him when he gets wrapped up in his own affairs. He doesn't mean to, he just has had really bad examples of friendship and I'm the first one that actually fights to keep him grounded. 
      So how do I maintain this friendship in a Godly way without letting my own bias get in the way and how do I move on from my feelings? If you need me to answer any further questions that might help give better advice, please feel free to ask. I have probably forgotten something in my attempt to keep this short.
