10, just being alive is an incredible thing. It saddens me knowing that I will be dead some day

10/10. All the work our ancestors have put forth have made this a truly great experience. You have to get yourself under control though and really not let stuff outside yourself effect your state of being too much. It's a balance between calculating and letting go... and realizing that some things are totally unpredictable. 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.

As opposed to non-life? 10/10

Living is 100% better than not existing

Compared to everyone in the world? - 8/10

- I'm white and live in the US.





Compared to people my age? - 6/10

- Graduated college, barely any debt, no job in the career I want.




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

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

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.

10. Life is beautiful. Admire it and cherish it. If you were born handicapped, became handicapped, cherish life and make the best out of it. We have to value what we love most, respect what we hate. Make the best out of life. There is never a guarantee that tomorrow is assured.

Mine is attainable as well, but priorities shift and who knows if your 10/10 aspirations will satisfy you? An accomplishment alone will not make you happy, you have to be content with yourself as a person and not base it on what you achieve.

I'm actually pretty content, I know who I am, worked through most of my problems, and just want to get in a little better shape. I would be happy just scraping by if I can do what I want for a job... I just have to motivate myself, work hard, and move to an area where I can succeed. Easier said than done though.

10/10 Life's awesome. It is full of suspense and surprises and that's what made it so great. You'll never know what's gonna happen next. Fasten your seat-belts and just enjoy the ride.
