Mixed feeling, but generally good. There are a lot of things that haven't worked out how I wanted them to and I'm not living in the state where I want to settle down right now. I'm almost 30 and really thought I'd be settled into a house with a family by now, but no such luck. But, I think the key to happiness is being thankful for and wanting what you do have. I have parents and a brother that I know would do anything for me and me for them. I have some great friends where I'm living that are there for me and like to spend time together. I have a stable job and I can pay my bills. I'm healthy. I love my apartment and my dog and I have hobbies I enjoy. Life could be a lot worse, and I just try to keep the faith that as I go along those few things that aren't ideal will click into place for me eventually. Life is about living in and enjoying the present, and I'm really trying to do that. I want to enjoy each day and make the most out of the good parts of life so that if tomorrow never came I know I could look back and say well, that's okay because I really enjoyed and appreciated the time I did have. I don't want to end up with regrets.

I do my best. the things that make me happy are maybe not what would make a lot of other people happy. I'm a believer in simple things. When you appreciate simple things in life its hard to feel like things are dull and boring. It's hard to totally avoid stress of course but I try to focus on only things I can do something about. I keep good friends in my life and avoid people who cause problems so life is pretty good.

One can't truly analyze my life due to its complexity, not even myself. I can say I'm generally content, though.

In general, life isn't just full of ups and downs. It has those left and right moments of relief, stress, anticipation, etc. Try to expect the best but prepare for the worst. We live for those joyful moments, so make good use of them when they do come - you don't know how many you'll have left.

I really wish I could think simply, but it's just impossible for me - I can't help but analyze every single thing I think about. I think life would be much better if you had a simple mind, but hey - I'm not complaining, everything has its assets.

I don't care if I wake up or not, preferably not. There's nothing here for some people and that's the bottom line. Most of the adults out there are no good and seek to ostracize anyone who doesn't fit their standards. Humanity has basically become a worthless species full of nothing but ill intentions and judgements. The only halfway decent ones are small children but even they grow up to be just like the rest of these adults walking around. So they are pretty much a lost cause as well. I will be glad when humanity as a whole is blown off the atlas and another species takes over.

At this moment, I don't have any problem with shelter, food or adequate clothings. Sex is a major issue, because, I am not attractive to decent females and I cannot accept bbw.

But I don't see any hope for the future. Life is depreciating fast, just like a car. I dare not imagine what life will be after a decade or two.

Trying too hard makes you look desperate, which doesn't help.

Any lady here wants to date a desperate man?

I should end it, but instead I just end up posting random topics on city data.

It's easy to get defensive around this question and refute its point. I suppose, I would respond in a linear way: "What is it I am supposed to be feeling?" or "How am I supposed to feel?" It is a very private question. Some people might jump and yell great! Good for them. I miss being younger, in a way, and it's a shame I had to leave childhood, go through puberty, and become an adult. But you know it has to end. At least there is always my ego to hide in when things get mildly tough.
