What Guys Said 38
Physically I've reduced my alcohol intake by 90%, I've lost 32Ibs and I run four or five times a week. Mentally, I used to work 60 hours a week and came home stressed every night, but a couple of years ago I changed job and now make loads of time for my kids too. The short answer is I am infinitely more happier than I was 5 years ago.0
Instead of being full of bitterness, anger, regret, remorse, depression, hatred, guilt, fear, shame, suicidal thoughts, no love for myself. vegence... instead of that i give love out and love myself, im proud of myself and try to help others, i gained a powerful wisdom and i try and learn more about it everyday ;D0
i'm married, have a kid. both new
also realizing that after almost 10 years at my job it's time for something new0
My current self knows English better.
OK, 2012/08/23. God, bad days, baaaad days. I have better ntb and phone, that’s important, bac then I was on college dorms, yes even through summer. And I was melting, it was so hot.
Generally, I’m better now. I don’t care about stuff, which I’ve used to care about. My last relationship was yet to happen, but I already knew her. I had long hairs, I was more emotional, social and…fuck, I didn’t know how to code in C#, that was bad. Like really bad.
I wouldn’t go back. It was in some sense very empty, and lonely time. But I would probably send my past self information. Better yet, my past self, from 2002.0
Maturity and wisdom... and lack of responsibility. (Ironically my sense of responsibility and dedication deteriorated over time... I"m hoping I can get it back before too long).0

Probably the change in my personality. 5 years ago I kind of had an attitude and always tried to act so cool as to now I am laid back and it takes a lot to get me frustrated.0
It was a lot more depressed and socially inept back then, and I also was broke and lived with my parents. All of those are different now so I guess they're all pretty big differences.0

I can difficult situation much better. I can forgive and understand and analyze myself better. Before I would cry and I wouldn't know why. Before I even thought someone was judge me. But now... now I do everything with encouragement and confidence. Right now I am going through a situation that could have potentially killed me. Now I can evaluate and understand my feelings and makes me at less risk. I pretty sure someone could make funny of me and I would stare at them as if they were crazy. Lol0
I was heavily dependent on those around me and not my own individual. I'm more in tack of who I am and what I desire out of life, I go after what I desire based on improving myself and not to please others and I strive to achieve my goals without depending on those around me.0
I had deppresion, anorexia and anxiety. After a long phisically battle with myself I finally changed after i got some pounds and started working out I got out of my depression too and I got in a " I dont give a shit anymore" phase in which I am still. so now im talkactive, loud, around people and I love it1
I was motivated, fit, happy, go getter, positive minded, hard worker, silly, secure, outgoing and enjoyed life.
I am unhappy, not even close to fit, negative, unmotivated, lazy, depressed, watching the days go by, jobless and insecure. 😐1
Five years ago, at 18, I was frigid and did not ever want to fall in love.
Now, I am a raving nympho with my guy, who is my first and (I hope) only lover.0
5 years ago I was an emotional mess. Lost in my own world,. It was were puberty started to hit me like a bus. Got my first period, and high amounts of estrogen started to shape me the way I have to become. Also broke up with my first ex in that year, and met my long-term ex within a few weeks after the break up.0
