    How would you rate your quality of life currently on a scale of 1 to 10? 1 rating being your in the 10 level of hell and 10 rating being your the best you have ever been.

    I think I would put my rating at about a 6.5 or a 7. Doing good money wise where im able to buy enjoyable things and travel. Have a decent job. Its not a passion by any stretch of the imagination buts its a solid job. Could use some more friends as well. Have some good acquaintances but no real close friends.

    So I would say im doing a lot better then other times in my life but certainly no where near a 10. What about you?

    This is in the 'General Weapons' section, not sure what your view of life has to do with weapons?


    Somewhat insensitive though to post up how great everything is when there's a pandemic killing thousands, countries shut down, schools, shops, gyms and businesses shut down people unable to work and many of us stuck in our homes unable to go out. But I'm pleased you think it's all fine.

    hmm difficult question, i live a life of complete leisure, dont do a damn thing i dont feel like, which mostly consists of me listen to music, making music and reading and drinking coffee periodically changing location in which i drink coffee , on the way doing my exercise and communing with nature , so a hearty 10 out of ten, however this comes at the cost of a low income, well low compared to what i used to get when i was working

    this has meant ive lost touch with people who i used to and can now no longer afford to socialise with, but ive replaced these with poor people, poor people are far less judgemental and shallow

    so all in all ideal

    yes but they are developing stress related illness because the frame work and meaning has been removed from their lives, or at least relizing that their soul mate isnt at all compatible, if you need to spend an extended time with them

    doing precisely nothing , isnt an easy skill to master and takes a bit of practice, fortunately i did next to nothing but change locations to drink coffee when i was working, so it wasn't that much of a wrench to me, during the '' financial crisis, my boss called me in and said , '' we are putting you on a three day week'' i said ''you can sod off if you think your doubling my hours''

    None of my friends are, we are all busy doing things we love doing anyway. Most people are likely to wear themselves out rather than get stresses, most people's lives have more in than just work.

    Just an FYI for anyone looking at the section this is in and being confused-it's been moved to a more appropriate section.

    Your mind is the greatest weapon of all.

    And otherwise it is a less toxic mindset to this problem.

    Still somewhat insensitive, many are in isolation and don't have the opportunities available to them at the moment.

    Yeah, this seems like an odd time to go on about how great your life is. Many many people are in a very precarious financial situation right now. The US Congress seems to be passing some legislation to help out, but my gut tells me it is going to fall far short for a whole lot of us. People are out of jobs, opportunities for new jobs right now are greatly diminished, and everyone has payments like mortgages and rents coming due. It’s an ugly time with a lot of stress and anxiety. Weird to be going on about how great things are.

    Sometimes I get on this forum and think I have entered bizarro world.

    Like when it is considered insensitive to appreciate what we have in a time of hardship.

    OP. If you are doing well good on you. Do well and enjoy that as much as you can. Don't let those with toxic outlooks drag you down.

    If you read if properly you will see that's not what the OP was doing. The post said how do you rate your life currently....mines great. It doesn't say 'despite everything going on I'm grateful for what I've got', nope, it says 'I'm having a great time buying what I want and travelling where I want'. It's a classic case of 'I'm alright Jack, up yours'.

    i think your being harsh. there seems to be a wave of this in the UK, where people who are miserable complaining bitterly that others are relatively happy and enjoying their life. its like they think every one should be as miserable as them. it sometimes seems that miserable people on twitter are running the country, with hate being poured on anyone who has been pictured enjoying themselves

    one should strive to be happy and keep a positive outlook, being miserable wont change anything, making other people miserable may change things for the worst,

    No one is saying people should be miserable, they are saying don't gloat if you are currently in a better position than others.

    she wasnt gloating by any stretch, she was telling people how happy she is and i for one aim very pleased for her

    there an enormous amount of hypocrisy around this, everyday there are people who are facing bereavement and illness and financial hardship even in the very fortunate parts of the world in which we live

    people are requiring you to keep your happiness to yourself now, only coz it effects them, if they wernt miserable two months ago for the suffering of others why do they expect people to hide their haplessness now just because its them facing financial ruin

    went through a terrible time a few years ago with illness and financial hardship, i dont remember the world stopping to show sympathy for me nor did i expect everyone else to be miserable o my behalf

    Must be quite lonely up there on your high horse.
    You are the grumpy one I'm afraid, and not just a little bitter by the sound of it.

    Common sense and compassion says don't rub people's noses in it, it's as simple as that. No one is being miserable, just compassionate for others, yes there are many people like that which obviously will surprise you. In a time when people should be coming together posting up that you are having a great time because everything is right with your world is as I said insensitive. Just because you aren't in the least empathic or compassionate doesn't mean that we should all be like you.

    MINES A MESSAGE OF POSTERITY, REALISM, BUT POSITIVISM. this new world isnt going away any time soon, we need to get used to it and learn to be happy or we will be miserable for a long time, you can be happy with very nearly nothing if you try and if you do loose everything and have to start again, thats doable

    but i have a deep dark seance of humour, which allows me to find the good things in a bad situation and amusement at the irony bizarre contradictions in the behaviour of others and myself.

    at the moment im highly amused at the spectacle of people who wernt in favour of government hand out to the poor, suddenly being in favour because the poor people in question are them and even more amused that they cant see the irony

    maybe when we come out of the other side they will have more compassion but i doubt it, which is just being realistic

    do you use an Ouija board?


    Ah well, yes there's that. Personally I'm seeing the irony in the Passover Seder being cancelled or done on one's own.

    I'm a Veteran, we all have black humour which is just as well considering the stuff we've dealt with.123
