There’s a question that has been bothering me in the past weeks.

How did I get here?

I don’t mean that in a broad existential way. I mean, how did my life get to this point? To a place that I’m not necessarily happy with. They say if you aren’t happy with your life then change it. Well, I believe I’ve changed my life a whole lot in the last five years and I don’t feel like I’ve gotten any closer to wherever it is I want to be. Seemingly the only thing that I’ve done is accumulate more debt and a few more failed relationships.

God, I hate the holidays.

    Hi Britt,

    Yeah, the holidays can be a tough time. Hang in there, be patient. I married at 32 after a few “failed” relationships.

    I have noticed that being grateful for what I actually have (food, shelter, health), and not making comparisons with others, or with my own shoulds and oughts, is a great mood enhancer. Easier said than done of course, but I think it is worth the effort. When I can pull it off, I do feel better. I’m not trying to trivialize your distress. It’s just that this is all that I can offer at the moment. I hope it is a bit helpful.

    Oh yes, and today I followed a link from a link on Angel’s blog, (http://www.mindretrofit.com)
    and I ended up here:


    The very last paragraph has what I suspect may be some good advice for single people. I’m not sure if I can copy it here due to copyright, but you could click on it if you want, and scroll to the last paragraph (about hiking).

      Thanks, Bruce.

      Of course, you are right about comparing myself to others. But it can be very difficult to stop doing it. Especially when I don’t really have any single friends anymore.
