Where does it end?

Wellrepparttar answer is simple, it ends exactly where it starts, in your Mind.

Look back at what you have had or what you did in your life that really made you happy, was it something that was a passing fad or was it more to do with being with certain people, going to a special place, listening to music, being on your own?

Whatever it was, can you have it again? Can you reproduce that feeling?

The answer to your past and future happiness belongs to you, only you can make you happy because only you control your thoughts, other people may have an impact but remember your thoughts are you, so think happy and be happy.
