Think about your life as a whole. Despite everything bad it includes; at the end of the day, does it make you happy?

Or, are there too many things about it that you want to change for you to be ultimately content with your life as it is just now? Are you unhappy with it?

It's a simple question. I guess it's just something I've been thinking about a lot recently. Shit's hit the fan in a lot of ways and yet, because I've dealt with it in my own head and learned from it all, I'm actually very happy with my life in spite of all the stuff that's happening. Just interested to see how the rest of the Pit sees their own lives.

So basically, are you happy or unhappy with your life at present, and why, if you don't mind sharing.

And also, searchbarr'd. Lemme know if it's been done.

I'm happy now that I can tell you it's been done.

I spent my whole day relaxing and watching movies. I'm alive, therefore, I am happy.

Don't fret man.

Honestly? I hate my life. I have so many regrets that if I took even one back I'd be a completely different person. Sometimes I wish the world would just end like the movie Dr. Strangelove, all of us being nuked to death and hearing Vera Lynn sing us all goodbye.

My life is ****ed up at the moment but i'm excited about the prospect of fixing it. So yes, i'm happy.

There should be a "content" option.

Haha, I dunno, I would see being content as being happy with the life you have.

Riiight. All the time I have been here and nobody has ever told me that. I just took "Searchbarred" as literal

**** man. I clicked that link and was so overwhelmed by the amount of them that I had to close it right away.

Well whatever. Just take this thread as a re-asking of the question, about right now in your life.

I can't complain.

I come from a middle class background and everything has always been provided for me: clothes, food, education, recreational equipment and all that. Grades come easily enough on their own with little effort on my part. I'm doing fine.

Well, to me and I'm sure to alot of other people here, on a scale its leaning more towards happy than unhappy, but not necessarily enough to justify picking the first option.

I understand that you meant the poll to be pretty much black and white though.

Seriously, all of this.

I think anyone that is "Happy" simply is ignorant, I don't see HOW you could be happy without simply ignoring all the bad things in their life.

I'm glad that was clear

It's not a case of ignoring them though. I think people who are happy are simply better at taking those bad things, accepting with them, dealing with them and just not letting them take over.

If you're able to appreciate the good things in your life, and just take the bad things for granted, there's no reason why you can't be happy with it.

this is exactly me. except im not really happy at the moment, but I hate complaining, because there's kids that are worse off than me.
has a terrible signature.

Yeah, I am. There's a lot that I could change to make myself happier though, so I'll be trying a whole lot of attitude/routine change after my final exam on Tuesday.

I can't really complain about my life. I have a few personal problems but for the most part, I feel privileged. I'm in good health, I have enough money, a caring family and several good friends (although I don't see them as much as I'd like to).

But I'm alone. Love desperately escapes me, and I keep getting bullshit after bullshit in this particular field.

I voted no.

I'm not 100% happy with my life but I'm satisfied enough to keep living.

I don't really have an opinion on whether life's good or not - I have friends, family, good grades, secure finances, my whole life ahead of me and still I'm not living it properly. Sometimes I feel like I'm doing it wrong

i consider myself happy. life's not perfect, and i'm not complacent with the way things are if they need to improve, but i really enjoy spending time with my friends and writing music. i feel like those give me enough of a purpose in life that i really enjoy myself despite my shortcomings and whatever crappy situations i find myself in at any given time.

Grumpy is a word for octogenarians, if anything you could say I'm agitated.

Yeah I'm happy. I've got the best friends anyone could ever want, I'm progressing with my guitar loads, just finished my exams and sixth form. There is someone that I want in my life quite badly but that doesn't matter, I can still be happy without them.

Lets see. Love lifeis non-existant, much like my social life. I have no particularly close friends. I have no job. I'm pretty sh*t at educational stuff. I have weight problem. I have no self-esteem.

I guess I'm not that happy, really.
