I live in Detroit and sometimes I feel like I'm surrounded by tons of people that need this - several have personality disorders, or are having many huge financial problems with no one to help them or sympathize. They probably never had that in their life.
Most of us are chasing a consistent source of happiness but they're unwilling to be persistent to get it. My best advice is try something crazy - give something your all, whether it be a goal or a person, and just see what happens. You might get very hurt, which is okay, you'll recover - but it might be the best decision you've ever made. I say this, though I need to follow my own advice and do this soon - it's about time...
Thanks for the ideas. I'm out of time now. I'll try and check in tomorrow on this one.
