Are you satisfied with what you are..!?
May 17, 2007 1:12am CST
Education, Job and Family are considered three basic parameters for personal satisfaction. I wanted to be a physicist as I loved modern physics. My parents wanted me to be an engineer, I respected there wish as I felt good about engineering too. I did and now I am doing my doctorate. Job: well I did before starting my doctorate and it was a pretty good job. Family: is the greatest joyful factor of my life. So as a whole I can say with confidence that I am satisfied with what I am... But not fully... The day I get total satisfaction, It will be the end of my life. I think we always have some thing to make better, to move forward. What life would be without having nothing to do, without ambition, without a chance of betterment, without learning from errors and mistakes? May be I am wrong based on my experinces.. What do you think, are you satisfied about what you are or what you wanted to be? Have you achieved all your goals? Have you overcome your errors?

I agree with your view ---"I think we always have some thing to make better,to move forward." For sure. I'm not satisfied with what/who I am, I have come a long way, but I feel like I still have a lot to work on with-in my self. I have reached some of my goals but I still have an endless list of other goals too.

i'm really feel ashamed that i had to say i never feel satisfied about who am i. in my youngth i wish i can enter the college to receive the education but because some reason i gave up the chance. My job, generally speaking i love it, though i need to do lots of trifle things and most of the time i'd feel so tired but nothing is easy, i had to admit the truth. And the family which you consider as the greatest joyful factor to your life i had to say i'm not lucky as you, i've lost my father when i was a kid of 5 years old, life taught me lots, we'd learn to grow and be strong. Sometimes i'd think i have nothing, but i know i'd feel grateful for what i have not miserable about what i lack. i haven't meet my Mr right to create a family, so i'd to say i'm not satisfied with who i am right now. i really don't know what tomorrow will bring to me, but i'm sure the most important thing for us to know is that life is going on!

Thanks for your comment and sharing your experience, ping_swift! Though I feel sorry that you have to be through difficult times about family and education etc but I am happy that you have an overall positive attitude towards life. I just hope and pray that all your dreams, wishes and desires be fulfilled. I agree that we need to learn and be strong as we grow. Practical life is way too difficult when it exposes itself to one but then we always have things to be happy about and cherish. I believe that where there are things we can't control, the actions, circumstances and environment, there are things which we have control on and that is our choice about how to react. There is always a better thing to choose from or at least lesser worse thing to choose from but as we make choices we write our history as well as destiny. Wishing you all the happiness in life:-)
