I’m an advice columnist for the Advocate.com. I received a question from a reader asking about his happiness and wondering why he wasn’t in “gay heaven;” read on for my answer.
I have a great boyfriend, an interesting job, a cute dog, and enough money to buy most things I want. This is supposed to be gay heaven. And yet, I’m not happy. I often feel like, “Is this all there is?” Why can’t I just appreciate all the good I have?

You’re not alone with these feelings. In fact, they are pretty common, but we rarely talk about it. If we do, we fear we’ll sound spoiled.
