    If you had the life you really wanted . . . forgetting all of your limitations and your situation right now.

    Getting back my physical strength...it would mean the world to me to be able to go out and dance, play volleyball, run..even walk a few blocks...if I ever get it back again, I will NOT take it for granted...J

    Tell me about it..I once had friends and we laughed and were always there for each other..then out of the blue they deserted me to be popular among other things. Now you think about it I've never even had a best friend. That would be nice too.

    Nothing, permanently. Happiness is just a temporary state of mind. Be it being high as a kite on drugs, finding true love, enjoying something entertaining like a book or movie. All these feelings are temporary distractions. Once they fade away you are stuck back again in despair. Despair is a temporary emotion as well.

    I just read a "promising" wikipedia article about happiness that says over 50 percent of happiness is related to genes (something you can't control). 35-40 percent of it but just plain randomness (another thing you are in no control of). That leaves the remaining meager 10-15 to variables that can change like social status, income, and your current situation. According to this only a small portion of what contributes to your happiness is decided by your actual situation and whats actually going on in your life.

    More good friends in life. Graduating school. But mostly, coming up with something that can upstage the "miserable git" line.

    If I would feel safe and good in my own skin, if i could truly put the past behind me, and accept it, if there would be absolute love and friendship.

    I agree. How we feel about ourselves seems to affect everything we do or don't do.

    Generally, topics like this promotes negativity. It gets people into that counterproductive "What if" & "If only" mentality. I think a better subject would be "What makes you happy".

    I could sit here all day and talk about how I wish I wasn't so impatient, or how I wish I didn't get pissed off when people look at me or try to start a conversation with me... but what is the point of that?

    Who I am is what I was meant to be... and goddammit, I rule. :cool::laugh:
