Only you can gauge happiness, don't use someone else's life as an example for everyone is different.

hmm good point but i think that even when i dont compare myself to other people i dont really know how to achieve true happinness. i feel like this whole issue about "knowing what you want" is a priviliege in itself. i am convinced that there are people who dont know what they want, due to whatever reasons. what do you do in such a case?

I've changed my mind on what I want to do with my life more times than I can remember. The most important thing is thinking of what you want, make it something realistic and work towards it small steps at a time.
One thing everyone needs to know is change won't happen overnight, a lot of personal development takes a long time.
Recognise what makes you happy, what you want to do and how to get there, set small step goals and work towards it.
Just remember that sometimes it doesn't always work out, situations change and desires also change but we learn from our experiences, it's not the end of the world.

What is my goal to be "happy"? I want to move to a country where it's people are respectful to each other and the environment. My opinion on my own country is that the majority of people don't care much for others or their area. I get sick of going to work and seeing litter and graffiti everywhere and the amount of crime on the news. My current goal is working towards getting to somewhere I will like. At the same time to be financially stable to not have to worry.
Another goal/dream is to go into space but unless space tourism develops at break neck speed in the next few decades, I won't be able to realistically so I'm focusing on an obtainable dream.

I can't decide for you, you'll have to sit down and have a good think on what makes you happy and be reasonable.

And don't forget the wise words from Captain Picard.

im seeing this quote quite often recently

>> No.17946   [Delete]   [Edit]

Well it is true in some instances, a lot of people do use it to try to justify their own fuck ups and bad decisions though.

thanks for these posts. i like your message about not giving up after failing. even if i didnt specify it, me having failed was really the motivation behind this thread. indeed i had to admit this for the first time in my life. also the idea of not comparing yourself to others is welcome advice. it is not that easy to do it, but i hope it becomes automatic after a while.

Social media doesn't help with the who comparing thing since most people only post positive things leading others to think that only their life is bad.
Failure is a part of life, we all suffer from it. It takes a few falls to learn how to get back up straight away.
I'm glad I can help and it really does help to talk to others. We've all been there at one time or another.

Life seems so strange sometimes. Much of my life was spent wishing for a dream I thought was impossible and eventually gave up on, then it suddenly stumbled into my lap long after I gave up, suddenly out of the blue. I've been living my dream for several years now. I have someone who makes me happy, and I can make happy, the only thing that truly feels like it matters now is protecting and maintaining that happiness. I've failed lots and gone through many struggles the last few years, but it still feels overwhelmingly happy. I wouldn't trade any of that struggle for the world. I think back to life before and it just seemed, empty, lonely. If I can just maintain my happy home, until the day I die, that wouldn't be so bad. I have my own home, a dog, and my channer /tr/ap gf. Everything else is just extra.
Sure I still have goals, things I want, things I want to do, places I want to travel, and even things in the world I would love to change, but none of those feel like necessities. Even as the world seems to be crumbling around me, as long as I have someone to laugh at it with, everything is fine.
tfw RM truly taught me I should strive to improve myself and get past my hikki ways

All I can say for your own happiness is, you may not realize you have it until it shows yourself. It may suddenly just arrive. Every day, just prepare yourself to be ready for opportunity wherever it may arrive. Also the more you focus on it, the more it seems to wait to arrive, so sometimes its best to think of other things, the wait will seem shorter that way.
