Is finding the true meaning of life, prevent us from leaving it? I am so concerned about what is it that makes us happy. Is it a good job, a good partner in life, family, or money? What's the meaning of everything afterall?

Laughter is best medicine to all disease so as the depression. It will through the pressure in mind and lightens it and feel happy.

True meaning of life in our culture & religion is -to be able to discover your self , to be able to control your self, your mind, your life. To advance spiritually in life even though we may be an average house holder. By being truthful in life, be true to yourself & your society.

I think the meaning of life is different for everyone. Some people want fame and fortune and that is their meaning in life, some people want a mediocre existence just to survive on their wits, some people want family and friends and to them those are boundless riches. So to each his own as they always say. I don't think you can truly pinpoint the meaning of life across the board for each and everyone.

I is worthwhile to note that never depend happiness on those things in your life which changes places with time like the events,money,good job,family....so on. True happiness lies within us. The only stable thing and support that dosent change places with time is "the one"...GOD.Develop faith in him.This will increase your perception ability and a new dimension to see things in the way he created and not in the way we want them to be.If you stay happy,everybody around you stays happy.Always be truthful....whether you are good or bad,remember truthfully eventually leads success....

I believe that the true meaning of life can only be discovered once you have reached that point of contentment. After that you begin to appreciate everything else that comes into your life. You begin to actually feel happiness in certain things that come your way. You start to realize and accept that trials do exist and they are just part of life. You become stronger and more optimistic about life. Here's something I wrote about the true essence of my own life http://www.paulynramirez.com/the-essence-of-my-life/

Life as what i can say .. based on what i know.. is something precious. "Life is a journey... not a Destiny" You can be as what you like in your life.. just be yourself.. and do what is right and that is the Journey.. you spend you life along the way.. and You plan what you want to achieve and you go and work for it to achieve it..and that is the destiny. You are the life.. and life is in you... you decide what is life for you.

For me, the true meaning of life is yet to be discovered. Everyone makes their own happiness. I have dealt with this subject my whole life. I am currently dealing with it major now. A person has to love themselves before they can be happy with anything in their lives. Every day is a new beginning. A chance to start fresh.

I think it is all relative to what you as an individual are looking for in life. Some people don't want love, but want good fortune, some people want love and don't care about money. I suffer from depression and it makes it much more difficult to see the forest for the trees. I have a good life now, I am very fortunate to have what I have. I have a good husband, who is a good provider. He is in Iraq to provide for our family. I have a very good daughter, who is very loving. Sometimes I wonder if that is enough. I think it is after all. I am much more fortunate than most people. I have true love, I have a nice home, a nice vehicle, good family and good friends. I think that I have found the true meaning of life for me.

I believe the true meaning of life is yet to be told! It is something different to everyone and once we are enlightened to why we are on earth we will know the answer. We live our lives the best we can, bring happiness to as many people as we can, be as fair as we can, and someday we will know the meaning. We have no idea what destiny has in store for us!

The meaning of life is to become the best person you can be. We are her being tested and we failed the first test, we ate the apple. Now we must resist satan because this is it ,we dont get another chance. Some people do not love God or want to live forever and thats ok, we have freedom of choice. The meaning of this life is to see both sides, (sin and good) and decide wich one we want. Thats it so good luck
