Do you love your life?

Asked by Luiveton (4142 points ) March 26th, 2012

Let’s face it. At some point everyone needs to express how they feel about their lives, and they want someone to ask them how they’re doing. We all need to at some point scream how were feeling and what we’re going through out loud.
So do you really love your life, or are is it facing a temporary downfall? Is it always negative? Are you waiting for the (potential) perfect phase in your life to come?

What factors are influencing your opinion the most? (E.g. fame, money, unrequited love? etc.)

…How are you, really?

I love my life at this point. I have the loves of my life (Hubby and daughter) and my immediate family is healthy. We live in a nice place and we both have jobs. Sure I could use a more satisfying job and I sure could use more money but on the real scheme of things I’m doing a lot better than I have in the past and I’m more blessed than most people.

Yes, I do. I really love my life right now. At this moment, everything seems wide open to me. Some days that is terrifying and some days that is thrilling.

I do right now. I ended a long relationship a few months ago and have been so happy to be an individual again and only do what I want to do. I love it!

Like Doc Holliday said in “Tombstone”, there is no normal life – there’s just life. Things are usually good. We all have good jobs and we all have good health, and we all have places to live, food, and no one is going through a divorce or anything at the moment. It hasn’t always been this good, and will not continue to be this good. I am sure someone will have a crisis sooner or later. Life is a roller coaster ride.

Honestly, the only thing going on right now that makes me sad is my grandkids bickering about our upcoming Disneyland trip. I have a couple that don’t get along with each other and it ruins everything.

I should feel lucky that this is all I have to gripe about.

Honestly? Not really. But it could be a lot worse.

Much to my surprise, I can answer yes. As things stand now, I love my life. I live in a cute cottage, and I have food in the cupboard. I’m sober. I have people who love me. I am appreciated for my artistic abilities. Yes, I love it.

Jude's avatar

I’m really, really struggling right now.

marinelife's avatar

I am in limbo right now while my husband is job hunting. It could mean another move, which I am in some ways looking forward to and in others, not.

Just moments of it that play for a while, stay for a while, then fade except in little dreams

Hell to the yeah. Got a stable job, some money saved, and a lot of freedom. My semi-short term goal is to save money for a trip somewhere tropical so I can drink all day on the beach and swim.

What’s not to love? I have a wife I adore and who loves me unconditionally. I have multiple children and grandchildren who love me. I have a cat and two dogs who love me. My wife and I own our own home ( such as it is ). My only debt is for the new pickup truck we just bought. We have a roof over our heads, pleanty of food to eat, ways to occupy our minds, ways to defend ourselves should it come to that, and I get regular checks from the military for my Captain’s pension and from the VA for being disabled ( plus a rather small check from the SS Administration ).

Like I said… what’s not to like? : )

My prayers go out to those who are struggling, such as @Jude. Love you guys! I’ve been there several times myself. Don’t ever give up your hopes and dreams.

Life has sucked so far, but I feel like that will change very soon.

ucme's avatar

The best thing is it’s reciprocated….which is nice.

TexasDude's avatar

It’s great.

I don’t worry about anything because I don’t need to.

Mariah's avatar

There are so many things I love about my life. There are a lot of people out there that would be easier to be, but I don’t know if that means it would be better.

AmWiser's avatar

Yes! I love my life and I love me some me! :-]
I do because it’s all I have at the moment.

MilkyWay's avatar

No, I don’t.

jehnstewart's avatar

I love my life. I have my husband, friends and my immediate family.
We (hubby & I) have jobs.
I am contented! I have all that I need and have some of what I want.

ddude1116's avatar

If you call “dependency” “love”, then yes, very much so; I’d be at a loss without it.

CaptainHarley's avatar

@Facade

Don’t give up, hon. That’s the one thing you cannot do. I will be praying for you! [ HUGGGGS ]

Coloma's avatar

Yes, I do. I’ve enjoyed about 5 years of a really happy, good run. Hoping I can keep it up. :-)

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Temporary downfall?!?!?!? More like permanent downfall!
Nah, I’m hating it much too much.

Symbeline's avatar

Mostly, I just feel like I’m stuck in a really violent river, with psycho currents and rocks all over, and I’m holding on to some log and trying not to drown. But I’m not an emo; it’s one hell of a ride! :D

Jude's avatar

Working on fixing things, though. :)

tinyfaery's avatar

Meh. Life ain’t all that.

rojo's avatar

I have reached a point where I am comfortable with my life. I made my choices and I am living with them. I try not to have any regrets but truthfully, I feel like I am just treading water, too scared to swim on but not ready to sink to the bottom yet.

whitenoise's avatar

I honestly know that I’m happy. It doesn’t always feel that way, though.

ilvorangeiceblocks's avatar

Not particularly. But things are getting better!

jonsblond's avatar

I do.

It is my life. Only I can make the best of it and make it what I want it to be. If I hated my life then you could say I suck at life, and I don’t want to be known as the person who is “sucking at life”. So there it is. :P

@Mariah I really admire you. I know life hasn’t been easy for you, but you don’t let it stop you. You’re a good role model. =)

likipie's avatar

Yes I do. I haven’t always but now I realize how stupid I was for not seeing all I have. Now I’m very happy. I have bad days, but I am loving life!

Keep_on_running's avatar

It’s gotten better over the last couple years, but I still don’t consider it “normal” and I certainly don’t want to be like this throughout the rest of my adult life. I just wish things would get better faster and not at such a snail pace. I want to wake up and finally say “I’m living my life” not pathetically existing in it.

Akua's avatar

What’s “normal” @Keep_on_running . I dont think there is really any such thing.
