Which is better?

To grow happier, which is better? Improving how you live, or improving who you are?

How you live defines who you are. Happiness is a pretty relative concept. Being around good people is important to me, but may not matter to others. I like having a nice routine or fun and rewarding activities available.

i live according to who i am (i.e. how i am feeling) at any given time period

during low times i live like shit, eat like shit and look like shit

i guess it all starts with how i feel about who i am so there's my answer!

Happiness is from the inside out and a person can tap that emotion whenever they decide to I think. Turbulence or chaotic times in my life is my signal to do shadow work. If I co-create my reality, why would I create this? Defining my feelings and spending all my energy reacting to my current space diverts me from asking that question. A question never asked, won't be answered and if it's not answered, the loop continues with greater intensity until I pay attention.

I think improving who you are will also lend to improving how you live. Probably abit of vice versa too

I agree, I think they both can influence and compliment each other.

Good question m8. Real good one. But srs it's all three.

You gotta be you. That's based.

You gotta live how you want.

And you gotta be gay. Gotta know when you're gay, when you could be gayer. When you're too gay even. See my sig for further insight.

I can't improve on who I am. I've reached my goal of being a cynical old bastard. And I did it 20 years ago.
