Oh, I know. That was the point. I figured since the best quality posters post on this thread, I'd ask a "deep" question, which younger posters and fellow posters could all benefit from. Sometimes by seeing through other's eyes, we can see ourselves clearer.

Though, I do understand how difficult this question is to answer succinctly. It really doesn't have to be one post; it can be in parts....however one feels comfortable answering it.

I am just an Alright guy who is finally getting over a three year depression. I am starting to feel motivated again. I used to spend most of my time with regrets, I didn't ever get to box in the Olympics like I dreamed as a kid, had a eye injury and couldn't pursue a pro career. Got mixed up in booze and drugs after my divorce from a woman I shouldn't have married in the first place. The past week it is like someone turned on a light switch in me and I am starting to look to the future and I want my old self back. Confident, Workout enthusiast, be a better father, not fear commitment and be happy. I finally decided to get off my cross and not let a woman have so much power to keep ruining my life. I want to be my old self but not try to change my own past. Things do come up like the book says "You might be through with the past but the past ain't through with you".

Who are you, K-DOGG

I am a walking contradiction: the son of writers and fighters, preachers, prophets and thieves. I am the descendant of actors, philosophers, warriors, playboys, and circus performers.

I am adrift on the sea of humanity searching for a favorable wind or current to ride into a friendly port to call home. I am ever searching, ever wandering, wondering who I am. I am a speaker, a mute, a poet, and seeker of the truth. I am forever looking; but never lost.

I am loved by many, hated by few, ignored by most, understood by even less. I am a prehistoric man in the world of modern love; a successful failure and the king of pain. I am the phoenix, reborn from my own ashes to live again and see with new eyes; I am forever in flux, for I am always growing.

I am a sojourner, a seeker, and the finder of truth. I am the fool, the fortunate, the most blessed man alive; God's Court Jester and your Uncle Fester. I am the echo of a laugh, the silence of an empty room, the pondering of life's purpose, and forecaster of doom.

I am what I am and I am more than that; I live life where I am, for that's where it's at. I'm moving ever forward, never glancing behind. For the future will happen; it's just a matter of time. The present is where I live and on what I do abide. For you can't change the past, and tomorrow's fortune can change with the tide.

I simply am....and am always redefining myself.

C'mon fellas, keep 'em comin'. 204 people have looked, put something down. :)

Here's one thing that I know about myself and that's that I very often have trouble putting my thoughts into words. Always have had trouble with that, especially with communicating verbally, as I know I have a tendency to over think what it is I want to say and very often what I do say/type is quite a ways off of what my intended words were supposed to be...I've taken that "think before you speak" saying to the extreme, I'm guessing.

"I simply am"

That's friggin gold right there, and I think I like that short statement so much because it fits me so well in regards to how I can get so much enjoyment & appreciation from what most would percieve as the simple or little things in life.

I still watch sponge bob and jimmy neutron. I'm trying to develop as a person not only mentally but physically. I spent a year and a half in Reno in a government funded boarding school for **** ups. I've learned from some of my mistakes and still am learning from them. I no longer have a temper. the glass is half full not half empty and I'm very happy. I meditate it keeps me calm and cool. I had a strong belief in god, until I opened my eyes and he was no longer there, Some family and friends look down on me because of this and outcasted me. I didn't need them anyway. I like people for who they are and not because of what they believe or appearances. I do know where I'm coming from....I just don't yet know where I'm headed.... basically... I'm evolving!

Little Big Man is one of my favorite movies; and I wouldn't call Jack Crab a cowardly loser...not really. He was the main character(Dustin Hoffman), no? He was like so many of us whose fate has been hijacked. He ran away from the path Fate chose for him, as so many of us, only for Fate to need him more than he wanted it to....and in the end, he accepted it and became a hero. Jack Crab was an ordinary man caught up in extra-ordinary circumstances that helped him find the strength within. No so bad, bro.

No A Sam Penkinpah film call "The Ballad of Cable Houge". My all time favorite film about a backwards man from the old west that is coming to terms with the Changing Technology of the Ott years. A man who built a dream but was man enough to give it up for a woman. Starring Jason Robards, Stella Stevens and an Englishman David Warner. Worth a watch.

Only through knowing ourselves can we even come close to loving ourselves and thereby, actually changing the world, or at least our place in it.

Exactly. This is something the kids of my generation don't understand. They think that they can be someone else, put a front on and be the best at everything. Yet they don't even know who they are.

No, I'm not asking for names.....just who are you at this point in your life....how do you sum you up so far? :)

I have grown up nicely tha past 10 years.........when I was 19 I was in Jail and had nothing going for me........Now I have a had the same job for 8 years,a 5 year old son and my own home,a nice car and the future looks pretty good.I also know that life can change in a blink of an eye so I don't take it for granted I just hope I continue to make the right choices and follw the path to success.I give myself an a for overcoming things and an overall c+ at this point because there is still much room for improvement.

Have you ever wonder how it would be like to get lost in the middle of a desert that feels so endless with nothing but you... JUST YOU..

Well, thats how I feel about my life right now. I have no idea, not even a clue of what I wanna do in my life. I often DREAM about me being so happy and invincible that I could almost do anything, because I have everything.. and just to wake up in the morning and find out that I'm still in this REAL WORLD.. the ****ing reality hits and slaps me on the face. Oh how I hate it to wake up everyday feeling so hopeless, depressed and living a lackadaisical life. I was an A student in high school and I'm 19 years old. But I started getting depressed after I graduated when I found out how hard, and complicated life could be. I used to be fit, and in shape compared to most people but depression comes with laziness. I gained about 30 pounds in 4 months.. I have a crappy job but have a good car just to find out that my insurance went up to $550 dollars because of an accident that I got into earlier this year. So as of now, I'm basically just working for my car and I can't even afford to go to college and I live with my parents. I have no money, no special talents, no college education, NOTHING.. The only thing that helps me get up each morning and live another day is my girlfriend and my family. And I'm loosing my faith every minute, hour and second I spend in this world. I feel like a crippled guy trying to compete for Track and Field in the olympics. I LOVE BOXING so I tried it just to find myself getting beat up by the best guys in the gym. I tried very hard but I realized, no matter how hard you train, there's always gotta be someone better than you. I really don't know what's next for me. I stopped praying and hoping that God will give me at least something for myself to move on cause I feel like he doesn't exist anymore. I know I'm still young but I prematurely realized how comlpicated and difficult life is. I don't know if its a bad sign or a good sign. Maybe its telling me something. Maybe its the key to finally break me free in this hellish world but I'm just to blind to see it. And maybe, just MAYBE.. its the key to let me live like my DREAM.

Thanks for sharing, bro. Yeah, life is rough, it will beat you down; and God usually doesn't help....directly. The key I've found, is attitude and it comes from within. Now, I'm not going to tell you I still, at age 36, don't view the world as you've described it, for I do....I think we all do from time to time. The thing is, you have to make yourself taket that step towards change. Only you can do it, no one else. I have found though, in several of my various incarnations, that if I do take one or two steps towards change, towards something other than what is bringing me down...ergo, whatever current situation I am not happy with, God or Fate, or Karma or whatever you want to call it, usually takes a step or two back towards me and offers a "door" of sorts.

Hang in there man, life is indeed a *****; but it can also be beautiful. I had a bit of an epiphany a while back. I stepped outside of the place where I work during a horrible day, gray, overcast, cloudy, and dreary-feeling in general from where I stood. Then, I took about five or six steps onto the grass to where I could see the city around the corner of the building, and there it was: the most gloriously beautiful sunset you could have ever imagined; right there....right around "the corner".

That got me thinking of the symboism of that moment. When life is gray and black and dreary all round, maybe you just need to change your perspective; take a few steps into the gloom so you can see what lies around the corner. You might surprise youself with what's there, just around the bend. The key is, you have to actually take the steps to see it.

Good luck, man...,.hope that helped.

I am a strong man, good husband, committed father, decent son and a fair employer with the occasional flaw in all of the above.

I have fulfilled many of my ambitions but still have too many to mention, I will endeavour to improve myself and those around me in any way possible without the intention of preaching.

I am content in the life I have led which has been varied, I have travelled the world, fought in wars, watched my children being born but buried one of my siblings.

In a nutshell if I was to die tomorrow then I could look back with no regrets and I cannot say fairer than that!

You could be like me had the skills and got drunk got jumped and injured my eye permanantly and had to quit. I lot of people are much worse off than you and you should remember to count your blessings. Your just in a slump right now. I was in a depression for three years and I am just now starting to see the light. Some people don't have parents who love them and A girlfriend to care about them. Life is tough but things are tough all over. My attitude is bring it the **** on besides being unhealthy or paralyzed life can't throw me nothing I can't take.

Imagine your girl is ****ing someone else, both parents are dead and you just got castrated. You are not one of the worse off. The Single mom whose husband left her because she had a retarded baby. The cancer patient who has no family and is gonna die alone. Get down off you cross JC Jr., it will get better. I suspect you are able bodied and live in a country where you are not terribly repressed and can get ahead in life. You are only 19 and life for you has not really even begun. I have a three year old daughter that I only get to see two days out of the month. I don't spend my time crying over it anymore and I try to make the best of my time with her. You are limiting yourself with negativity.

I'm just an improvised human making due with what I have so far. Some would say that I'm ****ing up bad, others would say that I'm making the best of what cards are coming at me.

I'm not a good Christian, not as good as I want to be, but I do feel I'm a good person and when one is that, they have the potential to be a good Christian. One day I'll figure it out.

Right now, I'm defined by my aspirations far more than my accomplishments. I want to be a writer, but I don't feel I've accomplished anything there yet. It's not as important to me be a writer as it is to succeed in places where I don't know if I can pull it off, like as in a stable, prosperous conventional life, but it's writing where I'm doing my best.

Did life single you out to pick on you? Before you answere that I'd like to ask do you think you have been though more "****" than even half the people in this world? I want to point out some things. If you eat one meal every day that is fresh or hot you are ahead of 97% of the worlds population. If you have a dollar in your pocket right now you are in the upper 5% of the worlds wealth. If you don't have a major life threatoning illness, or if you do, you have a licensed MD to treat it you are more blessed than at least 90% of the people on earth. You have a car, That makes you amongs the world wealthiest. A job, makes you more blessed than millions. You are not in prison, do you know that makes you more fortunate than over a million others?
The worth of your life is based on what you do with what you have been given. Not what you have in comparison to the next person. Living your life that way will leave nothing but depression. Because we have all been given different assets. And different Attributes. One can be imensly ritch and still have failed him or herself. "you should know according to the facts I listed you are far ritcher than most and still sad" On the other hand it isn't impossible to find a man with more god given talent to throw a ball or run or even thow a punch who lives as a pastor, or even a drifter, yet is completely content with life. Why?

My friend knows a Jamaican immigrant here who married a woman who had 10 children. She left, leaving him with all these children who weren't even his. Now he works about 80 hrs a week just to provide for them without much hope of a better life or even a great education for these kids. They aren't even his blood. But he would never think of putting these kids up for adoption, even though he probably could and it would mean a financially free life. He loves them. My friend said this guy told him at work (a ****ty factory job) "every day I live to see and feel the sun shine down on me is worth it".

Now that is hardship and that is real strength. There's always someone who has it better, and someone who has it worse. Choose carefully what you do with your time here, because it's soon used up and who knows what comes next.

In my country 8 childern is something normal some families have 24 brother and sisters, i know one.

but taking care by yourself it really hard but if like the oldest child is 16 or 18 he could help in taking care some of the childern.

usually we are family based commuintiy if you got that much childern you will get support of other family members

this reminds me of a guy i went to high school with. it's quite a miraculous story, actually... he was just into the money and his jeep and the ***** he could get with it. he had a really, really high paying job and was working 12 hours a day and filling the rest of his time with whatever made his selfish ass feel good.
a few years later i see him, i ask how's the jeep? he says " i had to sell it"
i say, why, what about your job? he says " i had to quit, i couldn't stand being away from home all the time... i met a single mom, she's got a kid... there's nothing in the world like coming home and having a kid run up to and call u daddy."
i couldn't believe it, that guy used to live for himself and his money, now he was working two minimum wage jobs to support his girl and her kid

a few years later i see him, i ask how's the jeep? he says " i had to sell it"
i say, why, what about your job? he says " i had to quit, i couldn't stand being away from home all the time... i met a single mom, she's got a kid... there's nothing in the world like coming home and having a kid run up to and call u daddy."
i couldn't believe it, that guy used to live for himself and his money, now he was working two minimum wage jobs to support his girl and her kid

sounds special.

..simple enough, isn't it. ;)

No, I'm not asking for names.....just who are you at this point in your life....how do you sum you up so far? :)

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But, we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But, what we found out is that each one of us is:
A brain . . .
And an athlete . . .
And a basket case . . .
A princess . . .
And a criminal.
Does that answer your question? :D

Damn this post sounds like going to rehab, LOL. Stupid enough to not make a career and quit the Corps, frustrated boxer, never really good, had fun at the least as a teen, live afraid of going back to where I've been before, but noticing the difference of where I'm at right now and comparing to my friends makes me feel like the lucky one, and then for the past 10 yrs found a good job, married, have a son who wants to be a boxer, I'm trying to convince him not to.

..simple enough, isn't it.

No, I'm not asking for names.....just who are you at this point in your life....how do you sum you up so far?

this is me:
i consider myself to be unique.
there aren't a lot of 36 women like me. lol!
while at the moment i would say that i define myself as a mother first and foremost since i have a infant and a toddler, i struggle to maintain my identity as a woman. i am selfless when it comes to my children. they will always come first. my family is pretty close-knit so my role as a wife, sister, and daughter are dominant as well. my career is a career and really does not play a role in how i see myself. it helps me to understand other people and their motivations and behaviors and feelings, but beyond that i do not define myself by what i do for a career.

i am quit duplicitous in the sense that there are 2 sides to me (i am a gemini after all...).

on the one side, i am intense, focused, organized, "anal retentive"/uptight, responsible, and dependable. i want security. i love to be helpful. i don;t like unpredictability. i like routine. i worry and fret over my kids well-being. i am fairly sensitive. my feelings get hurt easily (when criticized or insulted or confronted in a harsh way), but you'd never know it. i tend to bottle it up. you'll never see me cry. i have little use for acquaintances. i would rather have a few great friends than 100's of fair weather friends. i hate small talk and the social pleasantries. yet, i am a people person. i have a hard time saying "no". i don't readily trust people. i am a skeptic and a pessimist. i am not naive. i tend to take charge and have difficulty deligating things. i would rather just do it myself to make sure it gets done and done right. i think you get the picture.....

on the other side, is kinda the real me, but that i tuck away way too often. i just want to have fun and enjoy life. i am kind. i am not mean or spiteful. i am very open-minded and tolerant of others. i am not easily offended. i get "male" humor and sarcasm. i am a people person. people fascinate me. i could people watch all day. (doesn;t necessarily mean i want to interact with them though). lol! i love to get to know new people and hear and learn what they think or believe about things. (main reason why i come here, i think). i am playful, silly, and child-like. i LOVE to laugh and i joke around all the time. i like to be spontaneous and really let loose. get swallowed up by anonymity and do things that are so polar opposite of the responsible and mature "me". i read comic books and comics, listen to the music that most of my adolescent clients listen to. i read kid books like harry potter. i dress like a person who is in their early 20s (when not at work). i love amusement parks and roller coasters. i roller blade (so 90s, huh?) and play board games. the things that most uptight mothers yell at their kids for doing, i will do. i will lay on the beds in department stores if i am tired (lol!), i sit or lay on floors in public if there is a really long wait/line. i play on playground equipment. personally, i think i do alot of the things that some older women wish they could do but won;t because it is not apporpriate. i eat messy foods in public and can get silly and loud. the further from home i get, the crazier and wilder i can behave. not to get too personal, but my sex life is quite the opposite of what you would expect from the uptight, mature, responsible, person that i usually am. my significant others have always been very happily surprised by the person i become "behind closed doors" so to speak. lol! :o :p

the trick has been to find a healthy balance between the two. be mature, responsible, and focused when i need to be and when it's not needed - just enjoy life, have fun, and be me (be true to myself and do what makes me happy.)


did i happen to mention that i was feisty???? :p

Thanks for sharing, bro. Yeah, life is rough, it will beat you down; and God usually doesn't help....directly. The key I've found, is attitude and it comes from within. Now, I'm not going to tell you I still, at age 36, don't view the world as you've described it, for I do....I think we all do from time to time. The thing is, you have to make yourself taket that step towards change. Only you can do it, no one else. I have found though, in several of my various incarnations, that if I do take one or two steps towards change, towards something other than what is bringing me down...ergo, whatever current situation I am not happy with, God or Fate, or Karma or whatever you want to call it, usually takes a step or two back towards me and offers a "door" of sorts.

Hang in there man, life is indeed a *****; but it can also be beautiful. I had a bit of an epiphany a while back. I stepped outside of the place where I work during a horrible day, gray, overcast, cloudy, and dreary-feeling in general from where I stood. Then, I took about five or six steps onto the grass to where I could see the city around the corner of the building, and there it was: the most gloriously beautiful sunset you could have ever imagined; right there....right around "the corner".

That got me thinking of the symboism of that moment. When life is gray and black and dreary all round, maybe you just need to change your perspective; take a few steps into the gloom so you can see what lies around the corner. You might surprise youself with what's there, just around the bend. The key is, you have to actually take the steps to see it.

Good luck, man...,.hope that helped.
Good piece of advice bro, this almost made me cry...
Nice thread...

About me, I'm 25, single and working in a job for almost four years which I really doesn't enjoy to be honest. Right now it's hard to look for a good paying job considering myself that I just finished a 3 year course, there's really a tough competition out there when you look for really good job. They say happiness is not measured on how many cars you have, how big your house is, but it is on the contentment of being who you are and what you have. I can say that I'm contented for now, having a loving family, friends, and girlfriend and I'm thankful to God for the blessings. I have been through same stages of life that others have been through here and share same sentiments. Alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, girls, riots, almost got jailed, there are times I almost gave up thinking that my life is going nowhere until came a time I realized that it's not yet too late. I stayed out of trouble, went to church regularly, made new good set of friends and always prayed. These made me a better person and gave me a better outlook on life.
