Emotions can also be used to magnify experiences and when you have your emotions in check they will only be useful instead of a nuisance.

I think once you get outside yourself too and start wanting to be of service for others it opens up a new world. The time you spend on yourself are magnified that much more. That's what I have found anyway.

True, living is always a 10/10, especially in this time. But it can get hard to build a world for yourself to be happy in at the same time.

Compared to my ideal version of myself/position I want to be in?

.5/10 - I hate myself and can't pursue anything here.

my ideal self is very attainable but will never reach it. i would easily feel life is a 10/10 if i could get their.
