The thing I like most about my life is surprisingly, my job. It's not hard and my coworkers are good people.
The thing I dislike the most is my life is pretty boring and uneventful. I don't really go anywhere or do much.
My biggest reoccurring problem is letting people get under my skin over things that shouldn't matter.
The thing I'm the most glad about is that I don't have any serious health problems *knock on wood*
How all of these affect me in a whole, I'm not sure.
Maybe you should try something new or try hanging out with friends/coworkers? The purpose of life is to enjoy life and to experience the world.
The one thing about my life i like is that i have the possibility to be free, and im working for it.
The one thing i dislike is my thoughts\boredom.
Free? That word has a lot of defiinitions. If you mean emotionally/mentally free, then that is attainable. I find that by simply just accepting life for what it is, letting go of my negative emotions, not letting anything affect my happiness, and embracing every good thing in life, is the key to true happiness. The world is a mess, my life is a train wreck, i have emotional problems and circumstantial problems and even some physical problems, but my mind is happy. As long as i'm not in a severe level of pain/discomfort/, then i dont really care what happens in my life. This is a good mindset to have. You are still aware of your problems, you are still doing something about your life etc, but you simply are not letting anything take away your happiness. Because life is short, so dont waste it. I dont know if thats what you mean by free lol but i thought i might put it here for people to maybe read, it's a really good mindset to go through life with.
I like the lack of expectation and pressure from my parents now.
Not having the confidence to apply for work in places I know I'd be great in if it wasn't for my SA.
That I'm always waiting for the next person to hurt me.
Having my animals to look after.
- I feel my parents have given up trying to "encourage" me to find a job and live in my own place and things, because they know they'd be met with a fight and I'd regress to being difficult to deal with again (in a different way to how I already am difficult to deal with).
- Being able to work would mean having a routine that isn't spending too much time cooped up in my room, because I'm someone who loves the outdoors, so going for long walks and cycling for miles around where I live was common for me until a few years ago. If I could find work where I'm outside a lot (which is why I want to do dog walking), I'd enjoy that.
- I've been hurt a lot in the past by many people who were friends, family, and people who either didn't know me that well or didn't know me at all, and I've become very aloof because of it. I don't like getting close to others anymore, I don't trust easily, and I've lost respect for a few people I'd once looked up to. It's also why I feel I'm closer to animals than other people.
- My animals give me a reason to leave my room other than for getting meals or using the bathroom. Plus, they make me laugh and give me comfort when I feel stressed. One of my guinea-pigs is very patient about being handled, and his fur is long and woolly so he's very soft, cuddly, and relaxing to groom. He'd make a great therapy pig lol.
Hmm if i were you i would really do all i can to face my fears and to change my life, even if it took one step at a time. You still have a lot of time to change things. Dont let anxiety stop you. I mean everyone has their preferences but personally if i were in your situation, i would hate to be living with my parents and with no friends or job etc.
I have a loving family and a great bunch of friends who care about me.
My anxiety/depression/BDD issues.
I never feel normal due to my mental condition.
I'm glad I'm trying to get better every day and making progress. I'm glad I'm meeting new people on this forum to help me.
I have a condition that prevents me from doing a lot in life. I do have a support group that helps me cope and grow as a person. I feel like I'm constantly at war, but at least it feels as if I'm winning.
1. That I'm alive & I'm not bored all the time.
2. That I'm stuck in my house all the time & my SA+OCD tag teaming to keep me from doing anything about it.
3. Old grudges & tramatic events always riling up me up & ****.
4. See #1
5. Due to the severity of my condition, I remain stagnant from going outside my house. Another side effect of my situation is my inability to sleep (at least past midnight) which in turn allows old tramatizing events to haunt my mind.
Smash your problems! Grab your SA and ocd and agoraphobia in a bunch and go outside your house and claim the world for your own!
A good life wont fall into your hands, so you have to take charge and make life into what you want it. Even if it takes one small step at a time. Yes, anxiety and agoraohobia and ocd etc make life much harder, but they do not control you. I used to have really terrible ocd but i finally got sick of it and got rid of it. I can now to through my life thinking so clearly and my mind is much more peaceful. Agoraphobia and sA can be overcome one step at a time. Remember, dont let anything stop you from living the life that you want. You are in control.
What I like most?... hmm hard one. Probably the fact that I have quite a bit of freedom in my life. Almost too much freedom, it's anarchy.
What I dislike the most is how much I don't have my life together and that I'm always a mess in one way or another.
Instability is the biggest problem. Always.
I'm glad that (well, right now at least) that I have some good qualities that maybe not everyone has, meaning everyone who's had a fairly normal life without much trauma. Meaning at least, because I've grown up with a background of times of trauma, there's a small part in me that feels for the person in a rough place or a hard time.
How do they affect me? Well, I'm either always in some sort of crisis or never really seeing the good side of the city. There's not really a silver lining, more like a cluster of water vapor that eventually turns into a tornado and rips my life apart. But other than that, I get to enjoy some fine moments here and there. I dunno. I'm beside myself all the time. Coffee traumatizes me, silly stuff like that.
Life is messed up, life is far from perfect. I just enjoy whatever life throws at me. Jusg live for the hell of it, for the sake of experiencing anything at all, good or bad. I've given up on trying to stay in control of everything and trying to make everything perfect. I just float through life, accomplish what i want, dont let anything take away my happiness, etc. Try it, it helps a lot. Life is short so there is no point in trying to get everything together, just relax and float through life. I'm not saying to not do anything about life lol but i mean life is so much more peaceful and happy when we just let go of everything and just focus on actually living life itself.
Like the most? My family. Direct family is dysfunctional but currently, the times I'm most happy is spent with them or attending big family events.
Dislike, without saying, would be my anxiety/depression but more specifically, the loneliness that's caused from it. It hurts so good when someone actually talks to me one on one. The cycle of it sucks. I'm clingy because I have no one and I have no one because I'm clingy. Trying to fix that.
Biggest problem is my lack of initiative. I've had a few small triumphs here and there but I've missed out on a lot because I can't take that initiative.
I'm most glad about my empathy. I always try to be the friendly ear, middle ground kind of guy. I'm not fond of conflict and I like to help people. I think that's one thing SA has done right for me.
Hmmm good people who are like you probably would stay with you whether you are clingy or not, you just have to find them.
