6 things miserable people do

Recommended Posts

Here is a link.  This seems so true!

https://www.elitedaily.com/life/8-things-that-only-truly-miserable-people-do

Here are 6 of the 8 things.

1. They manage to find the worst in everything – always finding the down side.

2. They hate their friends.

Miserable individuals seem to make "friends" with other miserable individuals.

3. They spend as much time as possible distracting themselves from reality.

4. The first thing they do every morning is get pissed off about having to get up.

5. They don’t like themselves very much, but still think they’re better than the rest of the world.

6. They believe those who are happy must be ignorant, yet are still jealous they can’t be as happy themselves.

at least one day a week i'm  miserable as fuck.

Why is that Morpheus?   I humbly ask that you give one simple example. 

Be open.  Be honest. And keep it simple.

I resonate with 6 a lot. I don't know if it's jealousy though, but it's hard to believe someone can be happy while seeing all that is wrong with the world and human behavior. Ignorance isn't bliss for those who see the suffering and how problematic the world is. I'm ignorant about my "purpose" in life, and that isn't blissful for me. I'm ignorant to why I supposedly came down here to experience the life that I do. I'm ignorant to a good enough reason that existence even has to exist. I'm ignorant to the reason to hope that life will be what I want it to be. It seems the only way to get what I want is to have to do what I don't want to do, and I hate that about life.

Oh no, I'm feeling despressed now...

2. They hate their friends.

Miserable individuals seem to make "friends" with other miserable individuals.

Oh no, now I hate myself...

3. They spend as much time as possible distracting themselves from reality.

What was that - oh that's a pretty colour - what was the question..?

4. The first thing they do every morning is get pissed off about having to get up.

Have a morning piss - oh no, that's me... What about during the night...?

5. They don’t like themselves very much, but still think they’re better than the rest of the world.

I like myself a lot - just not first thing in the morning, when I've eaten too much - again! or when I look in the mirror... "Hey good looking, what you doin'..?" Where were we...

6. They believe those who are happy must be ignorant, yet are still jealous they can’t be as happy themselves.

What a fucking stupid thing to say - man, some people piss me off. jealous as what, the nose on the clown is too red... Get a life!

Hey Scot, that's an interesting proposition you put forward. Do you think it may simply be a lack of self worth - why do you feel that about yourself? 
Teal's Q&A on following the feelings to get the root cause may help - have you tried it?
Also, try Teal's Self Concept Meditation and see what that reveals - then let us know...

Uow, i'm just feeling the exactly same way.
And start to think: is it true that i have to do what i don't want to do? perhaps my purpose s in another direction, in a direction that i actually want to go but am too afraid of doing so? or is it just an illusion an scape from doing what has to be done?
Gosh.

I used to be like this, the majority--or all--of the 6 things you listed. Number 4 dropped from my list once my life situation shifted into something much better--such as having a cleaner house in comparison to the hoarder house that was a result of, most especially, my mother's emotional trappings. And it helped that I found someone outside of my family who loved me.

For a long time, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 were a large part of my life. I was miserable, but didn't know. How could I? Positive emotion--the truest, highest forms, such as appreciation and love--were alien, absolutely alien to me. I had a fear of intimacy. I was scared of losing anything that I could possibly gain, so I subconsciously made sure to gain nothing. Nothing. No attachments, no ability to feel happy about the things I had, no gratitude for the endless love my partner showed and sent to me in endless ways... that was, until he broke up with me.

The loss and grieving was unavoidable. The barrier I didn't know I had toward 'grief' specifically was blown apart. It crumbled and what was left was the hole of heartbreak in my chest--the same feeling I had when my mother locked me (I think when I was around 4 years old) in a room. The room was dark. It had a bed too high for me. I think I may have only been locked in there for...say 15 minutes? But as a child where every moment lasted forever, it was torture. It broke my heart.

Part of me doesn't know why I'm telling this here. It's probably because I'm lonely and need to express. But also...I understand. I can understand the misery because I now understand what appreciation and love are. I hope...I hope that you guys can find the source of your loss and grief before the Universe decides to push you into it. But who knows? It certainly helped me, the way it happened. My wish and hope for you, who resonate with those 6 in the list, is that you can also feel what gratitude and love are like.

I never knew... I hope the best for you. C:

So they basically just kill time ?

My wife has an anxiety disorder and having the tv on and playing video games keeps her from being triggered by random noises.
