Kiara describes happiness as an ideal. She says, "In my life, I want to be content. When I think about happiness, it's more of a short-lived feeling & not sustainable to feel all the time."
She emphasizes that it's okay to be sad, and it doesn't mean anything is wrong with you. She explains, "In my experience with self-harm & being clean with that & going to the hospital, in all of that, I have pockets of happiness where in the day I feel some form of joy & something that makes me smile usually."
