i have becoming careless of life, planning on go skydiving ^^

thank you,

I could tell you, you're not the only one. My viewpoints have always been negative. I lack so much in life... friends for one, I don't have many, just a couple, if I was to make friends it isnt easy but if i make a friend, they only come and go... and we become strangers again.. I would always wonder to myself, am I that ugly, am i such a loser taht no one wants to be my friend... but now, im happy with life the way it is and just the few people I have around me.

Funny, I also plan on going skydiving too.. have i become careless of life too then? I've become happier and so i want to do so many things before I die; living life to the fullest; like there is no tomorrow.XD

ooh hoo, that's good. i really feel that being happy with one's life is the key to happiness, cos there's no boundaries to how much one can have. but if u don't know how to be contented, you can never be happy. thanks for reminding me once again!

i think i'll try the parachuting thing, like you run and jump down from a high mountain with a parachute on you or something like that but not skydiving. the jump is too exhilarating, not that i'm unhealthy, but i'm so scared of the feeling that my heart is jumping out! i already feel scared enough when i skydive in my dreams haha. "heart skipped a beat" - so true, so apt!

I want to do taht too! Saw in many korean movies and it looks soo fun!!! haha! :)

Rather I'm healthy or unhealthy, I'm up for anything that scares me! =D I dont know, but it really makes me feel alive.. haha!

Talking about content... I never knew how to be content until I was admitted into the Emergency Room. It was like I was on the verge of life and death; all I could think about was howwill the world be like after I died? Fortunately, I came back alive.. haha. But afteer the incident, I've realized that I was a nobody to the world and to those around me, no one even knew i was in the ER and even if they knew, what was the chances that they will visit? it's sound so depressing, right? but I took it the positive way: I want to at least in this life time do something and be remembered when I pass away.. To me it's not worth living if I have no goals to reach and nothing accomplished and even worst to die invisibly. After high school, I have been a workaholic, work work work and home... no friends, no social life... all i have was work and money.. i would always think of just saving money for the future and education. Life is depressing when you want a perfect life and you're strictly working towards it avoiding anything and everything that you think might sidetrack you from the perfect image. BUT now, that doesn't matter anymore.. I just want to take every opportunity that comes my way whether it turns out good or not, I will accept the truth and move on... just think of it as another story to tell.. haha.

Honestly, I think that when people consider their lives, most won't be satisfied, and if you can't shake the thought, you're depressed. I don't think the trick is watching drama, or hanging out with people you don't know too well - that's just ignoring the problem.

I have a pessimistic attitude (actually realtistic, as the world undeniably isn't such a nice place), and used to be depressed for no good reason. It's much better now. I think it's because that I know myself better now. I've always been an introverted person, and felt somewhat inadequate in social situations with new people, but now I realise that it's okay to be shy, you really don't need to be "friends" with everybody. Really we only have few true friends, and if you're not the type who wants to please everybody, you will know who these are. That's not to say that hanging out with people is pointless, but one has to realise that it doesn't matter what they think about you, it's just socialising, so you might as well be yourself.

From getting in touch with myself, I also figured out what I wanted out of life. So, even if my life isn't very interesting at the moment, I'm working hard towards my goals: I'm half finished with university as a straight A student, have a few good friends whom will last a lifetime, and am studying Japanese in my sparetime, in order to write my master's degree in Japan.

Your life is yours to live, don't waste it. :thumright:

PS: There are alot of great advice in this thread, I would like to mention which, but my post is already way too long. :roll
