What is That Makes Our Life Worth Living?

If you are given a questionnaire asking what is it about your life that is worth living, chances are different people will list down different answers. The question will perhaps make you pause for a while and ponder over as to what really makes you tick and matters to you the most. For many people, life may be just ok or difficult, but acceptable. For some others it may be worth living, but only just. While there may be some people who are not sure still and can’t give an answer.

Just sit alone and think what is it that makes you makes you get up in the morning and gets you going for the day. Is it your job, your family or just a routine in general? Well, you need to worry if you come up with the answer is nothing. But there would be people who fall under that category.

Let's Find Out For Ourselves

Many people may respond that they find their life worth living because they are religious and spiritual. It gives a value to their existence on our great planet. Ask them and they will say, yes, I am pretty happy.

But what is happiness and where does it stem from. Even drug addicts under influence admit to be happy in the moment. But everything comes crashing down once the effect wears down and then they look frantically for the next shot of happiness. So, our happiness revolves around our life and how we are living it.

It all boils down to a couple of things like your family, your career and your recreation that have a major role to play in bringing happiness to our life.

Families and relationships

You feel great and satisfied when surrounded by your loved ones and your family. One feels satisfied and happy being able to provide for their family and do something for them. Sharing, planning, doing things together, life feels good and you are happy. Life is worth living if you are in a great relationship and as you dream of a rosy future tomorrow. You value your friends and feel happy when they are around.

Careers

Your career too offers great satisfaction, provided you love it and get great bonuses and perks on the way. You feel a sense of accomplishment. Each day brings new motivation to enhance your productivity, making your talents worthy of recognition.

Recreation

Sports, vacation, movies, shopping, outing with your family, the list can go on. But as long as you have a place for entertainment in your life, you feel happy. It is very relaxing to listen t o your favorite music, watch a great performance on stage or spend quality time with your family and kids while on a vacation. Now that makes life worth living.

I like very much what you said Sarah. Helping people is truly one of the most beautiful things for which our lives are worth living. When you helped someone and see that you have brought him even a little joy, it brings joy to you too and gives you motivation to continue with more positive energy. Thank you!

Well said, Milos. My children are my motivation to get up each morning...whether I want to or not :) But they are the best and I'd do anything for them.

I feel like my life is worth living because I am accomplishing things and helping people. I have been focusing on self improvement, and I like using my Psychology degree to help other people. I also have good relationships. Unforttunately, I don't have a lot of leisure time. That is okay, because I like to keep busy.

I really like what you said david! Every time carrying their burden and there is always someone who need help and we can help if we want? It’s a nice feeling when you see someone's joy because we helped him. It's food for our soul!

What makes life worth living for me is the sense that after the hard times there is a sense of purpose in it all- and it's to help others through the hard times
