Can an app really make you happy?
Well, no. Here's the thing: happiness is an inside job. So no app, hot boyfriend (or girlfriend), delicious food,big house, six figure job, nice car, or six pack abs are ever going to give you long-lasting happiness. That's because happiness doesn't come from external validation, it comes from YOU.
Now you might be wondering what the point of making a mental health app is if it's not going to make you happy. The point is to get you to see that happiness is a choice. You don't have a choice in having a mental illness, but you do have a choice in whether or not you take the actions necessary to start getting better. It's the hardest thing in the world, but choosing recovery will be the most worthwhile thing you ever do. The point is to inspire you to keep fighting this battle.
