Will I ever find happiness in my life? Everything in my life and my future seems very bleak. I don’t know where to go.

You will surely find, because it is right in your mind all the time.
You don’t see it now, perhaps because you don’t know what it is.
In my happy life, I see that it is nothing outside us. Wealth, fame, power …. are not happiness. Pleasant environment, convenient facilities, good relationship …. are not happiness. We may feel happy about them for just some short time, then we wonder that happiness must be something else.
True happiness is knowledge about our own self and how to master it at all time and in all conditions. This requires searching, practicing and modifying. It becomes a reality, without making any efforts to keep it, but just think, rethink and see that it is still right there as an imperishable ray of light.
A ray of light, naturally emanating from God by love and safely returning to Him in love.
Abdul-Baha says:
“Souls deprived of that spirit are accounted as dead, though they are possessed of the human spirit. His Holiness Jesus Christ has pronounced them dead inasmuch as they have no portion of the divine spirit. He says: “Let the dead bury their dead.” In another instance He declares: “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit.” …. This quickening spirit has spontaneous emanation from the Sun of Truth, from the reality of divinity and is not a revelation or a manifestation. It is like the rays of the sun.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 261)

Happy living soul
Emanating from God’s love
Returning in love
