    If my life were ever completely idyllic, I'd have either lost my mind and become a drooling sack of flesh or died.

    Only NFs could ever see such as idyllic.

    Which is the point of why I said what I did. It's impossible for me to ever achieve an idyllic life...because there would always be something else that could be more idyllic! It would be like a hyperbola that doesn't ever hit zero (zero being completely idyllic). Life could always, in some way, be idealised in a better way. Which is why I say I would have to be either a drooling body with no brain activity/imagination, or dead.

    yeah and really, most of the things people think bring happiness do not. but people always think the grass is greener, and want to graze upon it.

    the only thing that will guarantee happiness is children.

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm in a necromancing mood tonight, apologies. Did you get any further to reaching an idyllic life if I may ask and do you still see the progress towards that goal as fun? I wonder whether my life would be more idyllic five or six years from now as it's more or less the same as it was in 2007. However the difference is that I myself no longer see progress fun so much.


    Anyhow to answer the title question I do not think my life is idyllic. I don't think I have a true capacity to ever be satisfied with it. I only hope that when I die I do not die thinking life for me has been a failure. I would need to feel my life has been as fulfilled as it could be or I would need to be completely apathetic about the subject and thus an imperfect, unfulfilled life becomes a non-issue. So far I have yet to achieve either but perhaps there is still time.

    My life and spirit are quite idyllic, because I take it to mean harmonious and glamorous. And that includes intellectual fulfillment, which for me means cognitive contact with reality.

    I'm far from thriving, but I'm on a precipice. I find all phases of my life idyllic in a way, because I know what I want out of life, and I know that every obstacle or period of stagnancy just enriches my sense of appreciation for what I hope to eventually gain.
