I believe the meaning of life is just to be happy and make the most of this gift we have been given, too many people in this life seem to be fighting for things that they can't take with them anyway so people should just enjoy the life we have been given.

Personally I think each person has to forge their own meaning for their life. While I do have religious beliefs, I don't think that everything is laid out for us to discover, I think that we are supposed to choose our own paths and learn from them! My main focus in this life has been using my own hardships as a way to bring myself to a place where I can help others. Many experiences I have had were unpleasant or harmful, and out of that I have learned to be compassionate and try to help others who are in those situations. I know there are a lot of people who think that there should be one meaning of life for everyone, but I just don't think that it works that way. Everyone's life is different in so many ways, and each person has different things that become important to them based on their experiences.

I think it is very difficult to give a correct answer to your question.Any how,we have to live this life happily and make others happy.In this life we have to face many difficulties and sufferings.I think everything is prewritte by God or some misterious force and every thing is happening according to it.It is not possible for us to alter this.We can call it as fate.If we face some problems in life,then only we ask this question to ourself.If we are enjoying life with out any problem,i think there is no chance of thinking about this question.When i am in deep trouble,i ask this question my self so many times.
