    I like my life.

    I'm not ambitious and I'm not into 'stuff' - but I own my house, which I did care about, we're financially stable with enough to pay the bills and do the fun things, and I get to work doing things I'm passionate about. I have a good friend group, and a good relationship with the family I have a relationship with and the toxic folks were cut out many years ago.

    that's... really all I want.

    3 graduate degrees and endless late nights later - doing what I wanted. Does not come without its challenges. I think it’s a personality trait to be goal-oriented, because now I’ve worked through some new goal posts I’m hoping to achieve.

    Such is life ..

    Wow, I feel like I should respond with my true thoughts and why I’m loving life and living my dream…

    I’ll give it thought because it deserves an honest, well thought out answer.

    I am living, and it is not nightmares anymore, so no complaints.

    I should be living the dream: I’m healthy, engaged to be married, good family, almost a million in the bank, own my own house but I’m just not. I feel useless at work, I know I react badly to any critical, I go from appearing confident and an annoying know it all to absolutely rock bottom where I know I’m a horrible person without a personality. I’ve friend but feel disconnected from them. I worry nobody will come to my wedding. I hate myself and my life.
    Gotta fix that first. You can always improve from where you are. It won't always be perfect, but you first gotta start "Liking yourself unconditionally." When you start that and believe it, things that try to derail you in life aren't as hard to face.

    Nope. Not really working towards it, either.
