Setting goals is not a bad thing. Not Being able To appreciate the things on your life is something Else.

Yea, tell that to a mentally or physically disabled person to value the little things they have while never being able to live an ordinary life. There are cases when it would've been better if you were never born.

I often hear a lot of people say: ''the best things in life are free.'' Well, no. The best things in life are actually very expensive.

I can understand what you mean, but how many times in your life have you successfully achieved something big, but it all felt anti-climatic? Successful people end up unhappy all the time. I believe strongly in aspiring to greater things, but maybe there is something true in the cliche, it's not just the destination, it's the journey.

I can't answer that question because I haven't really achieved anything big and/or special, even though I try.

The reason succesful people end up ''unhappy'' is because most of those people are weak minded. Of course, someone who had every blessing imaginable coming to them without ever having truly suffered is likely to whine and complain about irrelevant things while they have no reason to complain at all. Those kind are the ones you should tell to 'count their blessings', but not to those who are of poorer status in life.

But that's not going to happen anytime soon as long as things stay the way they are for me.

What do you personally think are your positives?

I see little positivity in your words on this forum. I sense, like I said before, rock solid underneath, honesty and truthfulness. You will flourish once you embrace the goodness. You will achieve what you want to if you are able to do this. Things won't be handed to you on a silver platter if you don't put the work in to being a fully rounded man.

Well I don't know what your personal measure of achievement is. I am sure you've done one thing in your life that your proud of.

Or they wake up and realize they're living a lie, or they've lost so much of who they were in life chasing success. Or they've been so worn down by the constant struggles, they just want to retreat. Or maybe they never learned to cope with success. Besides can you be mentally strong in every situation?

Makes no difference to me who they are, or what they've live? Some concepts are universal.

Barbeques with friends and family. ....being out in the woods.......making passionate love to a beautiful woman. ......drawing my bow on a big deer.........laying on a tropical beach. ........surfing and feeling that magical moment when I go from arm power to riding the power of the ocean. ....loading up my Cessna and being "downbound" for the little latitudes for a long weekend with my family.....and who doesn't enjoy a little snark once in a while?

By the way "edithaint" .......I find post both interesting and commonsensicle and have decided to add you to my buddy list.........have a great day!

Not that I crave for your or anyone's pity, but I really can't think of anything I'm proud of. I have two nice jobs but it's not like I've done anything special to get them. I've greatly expanded my social life in a few years, but that's only because I go out a lot in order to avoid my boring useless life at home with my father (and it's not like I made many new friends anyway). If I am supposed to have spawns and be proud of that like literally everyone else around me seems to be, then you can say hell to the no because that's not gonna happen.

I have yet to meet such people. But whatever, let's just agree to disagree since clearly our perspectives and experiences on life are different. You are seeing a six, and I see a nine.
