Is it really so bad to truly feel like your life is perfect??

I honestly have no complaints with my life. 2 beautiful children, one coming soon, husband who loves me to pieces, an amazing group of friends, new home, new car, and so many other blessings.

I am content. I am happy. And, my life is perfect for ME.

Sad that that's a BAD thing to some people!

Not at all. 

Anyone who is upset about someone being truly happy and content is just bitter.

Many many people don't know what happiness is. They can't help it. Of course it's not a bad thing that you are happy. People just don't know how to be happy for you.

I don't think that's a bad thing at all! Congrats on everything (:

Bad?? No way. But watch out, start feeling too good and life has a way of bringing you down a couple notches.

If any one has honestly told you that this is a "bad thing" they are just ignorant and jealous.

My husband and our family are the envy of a few people that come right quick to mind.  They are sad in their lives all the time.  NOT OUR PROBLEM!

Mine will be soon too :) Hubby will be home (he is military and in process of medical discharge so kids and I already moved back home), I have a job, four great kids, a home to rent, he has a brand new truck and I will be getting my own vehicle soon... but the part of that that will make everything else perfect is him coming home. We have been apart for a year now and it really sucks.

I don't know. My SIL has been running her mouth, again, saying that I try soooo hard to make my life seem sooo perfect. I don't TRY to make it seem any way. It just is what it is!

I don't think there's anything wrong with it at all.  too many people will never know contentment, and that's sad. 

I also have an excellent, supportive, loving husband who helps out around the house and is a fully engaged partner in parenting.  I have three fantastic children, and even though one of them is struggling to find his way in the world, I have faith that he will be successful when he has the maturity to do it.  my inlaws are the best support team I could have asked for, and we have a decent house in a good neighborhood and a car that will do us fine for about another three or four years.

I might not be working, but I am going to school to better my employment opportunities.  I'm thrilled about it, and dh has said he's proud of me.  and I completely agree - this life might not be what anyone else wants, but it's perfect for us, and I wouldn't change a thing.

it's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got.
