    I never used to be, but after getting clean and getting back to the gym I'm starting to be happy with myself.

    I'm not going to badmouth my past drinking/drug use. I was self-medicating and it served its purpose. Without becoming an addict I never would have had the chance to do all the work on myself that I was allowed to in rehab.

    I still have my moments of self doubt, and I'll always try to remain humble... but in comparison to how I felt before, my confidence is through the roof.

    How about yourself?

    I'm not perfect!,lol... I'm not happy all the time! but I think that If we only wanted to be happy it would be easy; but we want to be happier than other people, which is almost always difficult, since we think them happier than they are.icon_smile.gif

    A lot of the time I'm not happy.
    But, I don't know what would make me happy, either.
    I don't understand how people can be enthusiastic about life.

    I used to be a lot happier.
    What changed ?
    --Medical problems (doctors are worthless)
    --I don't work (can't even get an interview)

    Hi atlboy713, I think a better way to ask this question is what things enhance your happiness? Happiness is not a matter of people, places, and things. Yes a beautiful place to live or nice car can help with a temporary jolt, but the innate state of my happiness doesn't depend on things. I could be happy in a dump.

    How I feel about myself is how I deal with other in my life. Am I doing the right thing? Am I hurting people? Am I discounting people who aren't good looking or successful? How do I handle problems or conflicts in life? If I start getting down, I have to address these things.

    Do I have everything I want? NO
    Do I have everything I need? Yes, most of the time.


    Yes, I am happy with myself!

    Webster, what one thing will make the greatest contribution to getting you back on track to further happiness in your life? If it's a job, have you considered moving to get one? The US economy may be shite right now, but other countries are doing comparatively well! Choose one with a good medical system and you could solve 2 problems in one move icon_smile.gif

    I'm glad we make blanket statements.


    Yeah, I'm happy with myself, most of the time.

    Dude... find your happiness within... getting dumped is seriously a head f*ck... but if you know your happiness, you will find true love!
