I as a realist, try to factor in the ugly side of life as well and I try to think of it as part of our existence. It's like the World presented in Bladerunner, ugly, dirty and filthy but still loveable cause there is hope.

    I dont want to imply that you do not think that way, it was just what came to my mind when I read your post. Sadly many strong idealists live in some sort of dream World from my PoV and I tend to think of that as escapism from the real World.
    I accept that some people are cynical and pessimistic, and it's just a symptom of the situations we're in right now.
    I've heard of corporate massacres in Africa, pollution and oil spills everywhere, police brutality, political corruption, starvation and poverty all across the globe, I know what goes on with the genocide in Darfur, the destruction in Palestine, and the tyranny in North Korea.
    But here's the thing, even amongst all this, it's better than it was a century ago, better than it was a millenia ago. We're winning, that's what matters.
    A world with hope is not ugly.

    Yes, I agree. I think you have the heart at the right place

    I would like to be embarrassingly successful.

    Success is having what I want, feeling a sense of accomplishment and freedom to do what I want...and of course I want to succeed, I'm human!

    success is loving more than you could ever possibly get back...

    the rest is meaningless.

    Success is going to bed every night knowing that if you didn't wake up in the morning you'd be ok with what you did with your life.

    Personal success, yes.

    Everything else is just one big dream.
    I just want to float.

    I think success has as one component of it at least increasing range of choice.

    Success is a rat race. You try to get to the end to get the cheese through mazes while competing with other rodents who want the same cheese.
