hey, jennifer. welcome to the board. i'm sorry that you were feeling sad and resentful the other day; i hope that you are feeling better today. maybe you didn't learn how to love yourself growing up (i didn't, either), but you can learn how to accept yourself now. i sort of wonder if you might be trying too hard to "like" and "define", and that's what is making you resentful. you're not perfect and never will be, but there's something comforting about it because if you realize that then you can just let go. life is short, so try to have fun; try to do one thing every day that brings you joy (and if you don't know what brings you joy, try a lot of different things until you find something!).

how would you describe a "good" life?
