    I know some of us wish to somehow avoid our lives, while others are searching for ways to deal with it. As for myself, I'm feeling worse day in and day out, and knowing I can't live in a fantasy world, I feel stuck in the middle, almost like a robot. But one thing I do know is that we are the ones holding ourselves back. We are all facing hurdles, and once we get over them, if we can, life is limitless. You may be able to distance yourselves from your problems for a minute by thinking about what you want from life and imagining those things coming into place in your future. They may be things that you've always wanted to do, or ones that just came to you. I know it may be difficult for some of us to know what we would want, but it could be intriguing to come up with ideas. Don't worry about whether your dreams will work out or not, or anything that could stop you from living them. That would displace the nature of this exercise. And plus, when there's a will, there's a way.


    In my future, I see myself joining a gym again and working out with a friend, moving to another city, making friends, being able to help people and feel good about it, learning how to paint, directing at least two films, getting married, having two kids and a dog, and eventually becoming a part-time Psychiatrist.

    Well I wanted to be a computer programmer... I can do it now a little bit as I have been learning from home... the problem is now I am losing interest in it and other things I used to love due to terrible feelings of self loathing, but I understand your message and I hope it can bring others good fortune.

    Hope for the future is a good motivational thing to keep some of us going.

    I think this is a great thread.

    In my future, I'd like to make music, make friends, and have my own little condo. I'd like to decorate my own condo, go the IKEA and purchase the furniture that I like, paint my own walls, decide the placement of television and my bed. But before all of this, I'd like to be able to trust myself and defeat depression and any of the other mental problems, and to become the stronger person that I should be. And I'd like to get a job so that I can support myself. I am 23 years old.

    Me too.

    I see myself in a career that makes me look forward to work every day, making money that allows me to be independent of my family.

    I see myself in a relationship with a girl that makes me happy.

    I see myself writing in my spare time, finishing stories and sharing my work with others.

    Best of all i see myself unafraid of life and comfortable with all the people I meet. I see myself meeting many new people and making new friendships and interacting with anyone without fear.

    I kinda always wanted to be a diplomat, lol. Big dream... takes a lot of work. I've always just been interested in languages and cultures. I really want to work overseas and help people. I'd also really like to join the Peace Corps.

    well i have given up hope that i have the ability to convince people that i am worth believing in. i have had it confirmed that i have limited talent in practically everything. i'm basically a retard. so career wise , to pay the rent i basically have to be an office gimp doing something completely easy and boring.

    i'm really ugly and awkward and no one can relate to me so i can't imagine that i will ever be loved by anyone. i dont belong to any culture. so i will always be lopnely.

    so what does that leave me to play with..well i guesss i'd like to learn to play an instrument.
    and er..
    thats it.

    Dreams are what get me into trouble. My main dream, since I was 4 and had my first crush, has been to find true love, be a loving mother and a good wife to a decent guy and live happily ever after. So if life were a fantasy and everything was perfect, in four years I would be married to someone I highly respect who loves me unconditionally, and enjoying a lifestyle that simply doesn't exist outside of the end of romantic comedies. This means that I would also probably be an entirely different, lovable, attractive, stable person. And functional. If that were possible, maybe I'd even paint, or at least volunteer at a hospital. If we're really going for broke, I would be a hugely successful novelist and I'd have the ability to lead bookreadings/discussions that people actually want to attend. So on top of that perfect relationship would be a few fun homes around the globe that I'd split my time at...

    Edit: Okay, I'm sorry, I'll be serious now because I understand the point of the exercise and think it's a good one: I'm 23. I'd like to be stable and able to trust myself again, supporting myself even if it's a small job to begin with, living in a small apartment in a trendy area, working out again, secure in a few good friendships, managing my time and energy, less socially awkward/anxious, volunteering with a program that supports struggling kids.

    Someone mentioned Tolkien. I would totally be an elf in Lothlorien (sp?).
