People have different opinions about their needs and wants in life. For example - one may consider love and the other might have a different view and may consider wealth. So, what matters to you the most ??

I think that what matters most to me in life is breathing, I tried to cut back a few times but I just don't like the color blue, also it makes it hard to talk and if I can' talk how can I lie to somebody?

A lot of things matter to me. But I think my boyfriend/friends are the most important thing in my life. My mom and dad are also included. I don't have many friends, never was the most popular girl at school. But the ones I have are certainly the most important thing to me. I guess that's it! :D

What matters most to me is the way people remember me. How many people you help, inspire and bring onto the good path measures your humanity. The more people you help, the more you will be remembered and worshipped. This would be my way of leaving a mark on the earth.

Happiness is the most important thing that matters in my life. I feel that everyone should be happy. Happiness comes if love is there. When these two, love and happiness prevail in ones life, then no one can do any harm to their life and there will always be success.

What matters to me most in life is my daughter before anything else. I live my life to the best of my ability so I can be a good role model for her. Kids absorb everything we do & say these days so im very carefull about what she hears and sees. I think the root of it all is we basically all want to be loved. We want someone to love us "unconditionally" and make us feel like were the most important thing in this world. If you have true genuine love from people then you can be lets say the poorest person in the world but if your happy & loved..in a sense you are the richest person.

I agree with you :). Yes, to love and to be loved is a great feeling ! Although I've not experienced it fully, I think that's something that cannot be explained in words. Yes, no matter how poor I am that love matters more than anything else and ultimately leads to happiness ! (The word happiness reminds me of Happyness in the movie - The Pursuit of Happyness. Those who haven't seen it yet, must see it) :) Thank you for your reply :) !

I think what matters most in life is the legacy you leave behind. You dont have to have children to leave a good legacy behind you just have to enfluence people in a positive manor so they pass things down the line to make the world better instead of making the world worse.

In life, good health is the most important to me. If we are not in a good condition, we cannot work. Second matter will be money. No work, no money. Without cash, we hardly can survive because we need money to buy food and daily use products. Third most matter will be love from family and friends. Without them, there is no meaning in life,

Yes, buddy ! I agree with you. Without health and money, you are not in a good state. But I feel that love from family and friends can rid you of your problems in a convincing way. :) Thanks a lot for your response. :)
