#1 Rule Challenge

This challenge was brilliantly started by @katiems, which you can you go check out if you click here.
@B1A4BTS5ever tagged me and made me aware that this is going on so thank you for that!
The basis of this challenge is HAPPINESS!
As mentioned in the challenge card,

"#1 Rule of life. Do what makes YOU happy!"

Here are the rules:
1: Make a card about something you've been struggling with or something that has stood in the way of your happiness before, is there something in Kpop that inspired you or has helped you through this? Share your story!
2: Comment on fellow Kpop Vingle fams story, give some advice and then relate their story to a Kpop song or idol it reminds you of!
So here is my story:
I struggle with being happy pretty much on an all the time basis. And not just happy, but even being content.
I feel lost most of the time, and lack the ability to really interact with anything. I get bored super easily from anything that I try to distract myself with and end up just climbing into a dark hole and staying there for weeks on end.
I also have pretty strong social anxiety so 'real life' interactions can get pretty tense for me if it isn't a location I am super comfortable with, or if I am not surrounded by like, one of the three people I trust to have my back at all times.
So, this lost feeling started when I moved across the United States basically by myself. Now, I have always dealt with this, but it got really bad when I basically lived by myself (I had a roommate but she was either out of town at her boyfriends or working, and our schedules never matched up). So I was extremely lonely, and getting into some pretty bad habits trying to just make myself feel alive. Well, then To The Beautiful You came into my life. And from there, I was introduced into SHINee and f(x) and that was just a giant arrow pointing to all of k-pop. Now, no distractions really worked for me for very long, but k-pop literally got my mind of all of my personal issues and has continued to do so for the past two years.
I know my problems are waiting for me, but with k-pop, I can just fade them all out and sink into the beats, looking up translations, watching MVs, and even talking to people online who share the same interests since online, my social anxiety doesn't really reach me.
In short, it made me feel apart of something and kept me calm during a time(and really it still does this to this day now that I am struggling with being unemployed and completely under qualified for everything) in which I was having such a hard time feeling apart of life in general. It made me feel human.
SO, it has helped me achieve happiness in times that I didn't think that was possible.
Some of the groups that help me a lot are BIGBANG, Beast, BTS, GOT7, B1A4.
So sorry for just being a giant dark cloud, but the object is


So if you feel like nothing is going to make you feel, there is something out there you guys.
And for me, that is k-pop!
Thank you for sharing your story and I'm glad kpop could be there to help you achieve happiness when you needed it the most. Keep your head up and if you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to inbox me, Just know you are never alone.
I totally relate to this!! I'm so glad you've found a passion with Kpop! ^^ I hope things get better for you, I'm sure they will! Just try to stay positive. Reading this reminds me of We Can by Super Junior <3 always look to the future and be happy with the help of Kpop! ^^
@katiems so upon listened to it, I have heard it before! But this is the first time I looked up the translation and wow. It made my eyes water! Such a good song! Thank you for the introduction :)
@katiems I don't know this song by SJ, I'm excited to look it up. Thank you for your kind words. :)
