Re: Why am I like this?
hehe, I'm not bi-polar (I don't think anyway) but I find myself thinking that ALL the time.
I have a great life, but sometimes when I'm sitting in traffic I look over at the guy next to me and think "wow, he has it so much better than me. I wish I could be that guy for a day."
I have a great fiance', but I will be at the grocery store and see a couple in front of me and think, "man, that is how love is supposed to be, maybe I'm not right for my fiance. I should be like those people."
Or I'll drive by the park and see kids playing in the field and think "those kids sure do have it good. I wish my childhood would have been as good as that. They don't even know how lucky they are."
I admit its kinda weird to do (and I don't ALWAYS do it) but for some reason I find myself doing it from time to time. Not sure it has anything to do with being bi-polar. Maybe it has more to do with lack of confidence or insecurity.
