I think alot of people on here are simply beating themselves up. While I am sure there are people out there who go through much more intense problems of life more than I do, I have a feeling that life is not as bad as they rate it.
I really didn't think I was that bad... I thought I would at least be a 5 or 6-- being below average is pretty crap. Of course, I could just score myself according to my own criteria and what's important to me in life and get a much better score.
Well I said 6 months and it's been six years so what the hell.
Hmmm. Bit better than before. Love life still zero lol. I do a good amount of cardio and weightlifting nowadays and I feel so much better for it. Six years ago, I was fat and ate too much junk food. And smoked too much. Now I eat healthy and I smoke 1 cig a day, and soon I'll be ditching that for vaping.
So I appear to have gotten nearly the same overall score, but in different places. While my finance and love categories have both increases, my mind and spirit have both decreases. This definitely sounds right, As I got older I had to focus on finances, regardless to the effect it had on my other aspects of my life. Hopefully before long I will be able to make a livable income in a way that doesn't kill me a little inside every shift.
Also, it appears I am even more of a tall glass of water than I was before.
