What to do when I can't make myself feel happy?
What Girls Said 2
I have bipolar, and I take meds for it. Medicine will help a lot with balancing you out, trust me. I went from attempting suicide to being okay. When I need a quick coping mechanism now for just being generally sad then I love praying, especially the Rosary. I go from sobbing and shaking to stable and smiling in less than 10 minutes with it. If you're not religious you could try making a mantra or other type of meditation, just something to ground yourself and focus on
Meditation, Yoga, go shoot some game (deer), message me on here?

Ouch! How's the arm now? And have your colleagues been paid… in full yet? With next Friday (14 December 2018) being the middle of the month, chances of your payment being among those your manager will make, if she's able to manage the cash flow correctly. When was the last time she paid you and how much does she owe you now?
What do you want to do in life? What activities give you a sense of fulfillment? Perhaps, doing that more will help.
Likewise, not everything is acquired by direct, conscious pursuit (like trying to pass a history semester-final exam). Some are "accidentally"/coincidentally acquired as a natural consequences by unconscious, round-about manner (like inadvertently impressing an interesting, just-met history-buff when you yourself have been a fellow history-fanatic years before the thought of meeting this person came to mind). So, sometimes joy is found not by seeking it directly for yourself, but by seeking it for someone else (or doing something different altogether).

My suggestion would be to work on some skill, like a language or drawing. Then you'll feel like you're doing something productive and you'll have to work hard, so when you eventually get good you'll feel great about yourself. Working towards goals always helps.
Don't seek happiness.
Happiness is like an orgasm; if you think about it too much it goes away. Keep busy and aim to make someone else happy and you might find you get some as a side effect. We didn't evolve to be constantly content. Contented homo erectus got eaten before passing on their genes.
Try an SSRI with "cognitive behavioral therapy". Call 1-800-A-FAMILY for a counselor referral in your area. Some of them will offer reduced rates or even pro bono sessions. Paydays are typically paid in arrears, so that's not much of a surprise.
Wow depression isn't easy I myself suffer bipolar disorder and I usually never feel happy I have times where I feel normal but usually go back to a low mood after a few days
This is just my opinion. Try to do some charities. Maybe you will see new things. Some people can feel happy by making others happy.
Listen to Tony Robbins. Go to date with destiny
There is no point being frustrated or angry, it won't change a thing. Read the book 'Power of Now' by Ekhart Tolle. What you need to learn is surrender (not the usual definition of waving the white flag), and what would benefit you a lot is the state of No Mind / Mushin. Learning how to live fully in the now will also help. In other words, pretty much everything contained and explored in that book.
