    Really? You've never even had little moments, or bursts of happiness?
    I meant more in general, like an overarching contentment. Obviously there are moments of happiness but I think of being content as being satisfied with your life in general. I have constant fear of failure and need to achieve, which has of course been beneficial but not been a great platform for contentment.

    I lied. I'm definitely not content. But thanks anyway.
    Awhh! You deceived me!

    But *hugs* I hope you're content soon!

    That's sad. *hugs*

    I don't think I'll ever be happy with my life in general but I have my happy moments and my down moments and I accept them both as they come. The ****ty moments teach me a lot.

    What is it that's stopping you all from being content?
    mostly because theres lot of people around me that aren't too happy/going through tough times.

    Not at all content with my life. If I had good health I'd be extremely happy but until then my life will be not how I want it.

    I know it's easier said than done, but don't let others' negative vibes bring you down. It's sad to see people when they're down though, I understand

    You don't choose how your health will be but you can choose to accept it.
    Being ill sucks, I've been there and still am. Be strong, you can do it! *sprinkles fairy dust on you*

    I wouldn't say I'm that content at the moment, though I'd like to make some changes to try and make myself feel better.

    I'm feeling anxious most of the time (for no discernible reason mostly) and still adjusting to university life which is exacerbating it. I don't really have much motivation at the moment but I'll try my best.

    I can't accept it though. I feel like I'm just existing not living, how can you enjoy life when you're in constant pain.
    Sorry to hear you are ill.

    That must be incredibly frustrating for you

    Have you had tests to determine what the problem is, and is it something treatable?

    Yeah, I know there are people a lot worse off than me but still it really get me down.
    I have hyper mobile joint syndrome. My joints are too lax and constantly sublux and lock, plus I'm always getting soft tissue injuries. It also effects other parts of my body but mainly my joints.
    I've had to have spinal surgery but need another small operation. I'm hoping that will improve things a lot.

    It fluctuates. Lately, pretty much content-ish. Got a job, a car, a future. But I know I've got 3 more years of uni (minimum) to get where I want to be so that dents it a bit. Still, all limbs attached etc.

    With life, rather content. But not with myself.
