While I do not take my current situation for granted, I am not as content as I think I could be. The true definition for me of unhappiness is thinking there is a place better than the one you're in. I never planned to have my life the way it is now and perhaps that's why it is the way it is now.
I work hard. I am a nice person. I don't take huge risks. I have grown to believe in myself. I am independent. I don't know when I will be able to relax and be content with my life. It just is. And I accept it. It's not better than my father's or my grandfather's life. In many ways, it's actually worse. I feel like they worked in vain trying to make my life better, easier, more "whatever". And I have squandered it by not planning and not knowing. In a way, not caring.
I've made poor decisions by not deciding.
Being paralyzed by fear and rejection, embarrassment and ridicule. From people I don't even like or care about.
I thought my life would be so different than it is now. Ask me how and I don't know the details. I just feel like I am spinning my wheels.
