    I'm curious, what is the most important thing in life for you? What do you want? Friends, family, love, money, security, success, or something else?

    I ask because I'm at a point in my life where I don't know what's important any more. I don't think I want the 9-5, the wife, the car and the 2.4 children. That said, I have nothing to replace it with :mellow:

    If you could do anything with your life, what would it be?

    EDIT: Oh and also, if relevant, what's stopping you from achieving your goal?

    I want to be an artist of some kind, find a place where I truly belong...but most of all I want to be happy.

    sadly, i dont see this when i look forward, and i dont think i've ever really talked about it in such depth..
    but my 'ideal' would be to be a tattoo artist in either a very welcoming shop or have my own, to have love in a healthy relationship, where it is respectful and caring and understanding, to have (i think) 2 children, one boy one girl. (i know you cant pick this but) i would love the girl to have loose, curly, sandy blonde hair with lovely blue eyes and i see her with jst her front teeth coming up and mashing away at something, then the boy to have straight light brownish hair with brown eyes, and he's about 4 so he's older, but still caring. i want to raise them well, show them a proper way to live and conduct your self, to have manners and relative caring for people. i want to grow old with my parner and still snuggle when we're (hopefully) 80+ i see it over looking a beach in a wooden beach house.

    but these are all ideals, i am not warped enough to think these things will happen. i dont want to disillusion myself with those thoughts, though by writing them down i already have in a way.

    I just want to be able to see my daughter more than the couple of hours a year that I get at the moment. As to what's stopping me doing that. Simple, her Mother.

    Maybe a little peace for a change.

    A simple relationship with someone who loves me.

    Lots of things... For instance, the latest thing along that line is with a girl 5700km away.

    Good question. I don't tell many people this but the only thing I really want out of life is for someone to love me, just as I'd love them. I want someone who I can spoil like mad, and just sit in at nights with, snuggling up to each other on the couch and watching TV or w/e. Someone to make me feel complete again. You see, I often go through phases where I think about my life long term, and at the moment I just can't see the point in it. Feels sort of empty and pointless, like there's a void waiting to be filled by that special someone.

    Yeah, that's all I want out of life really....nothing else.

    A straightforward relationship with someone who really loves me, and who i love too.
    I wish my mom would understand me, the pain i am going through.
    I just want a normal life :(
