what are your reasons for living? Many people only live to nothing, without direction and some are full of purpose that they think their life is not enough to fulfill them all. I live because I have to for my family and I enjoy living. If I ahve the chance to change people's lives for the better that would be a nice reason to live.

people are born and begin to live without any purpose.As they grow up and become the husband or wife they have a purpose in life,And most of all your child is the reason why you should live for.Because you have created a wonderful thing.You are responsible for the well being of it.You got to live to fulfill your responsibility.Reason enough for living.

Bala, what about the people who don't get married and/or don't have kids? Don't they find purposes too? I know, I know, I just have to be a pain! :P

Who said so? I am speaking about me.It may may someone else for you with a different name .What is in a name dear? You should be having someone as close as wife and child for me.Or else you will have soon.How soon or how late is not the issue because time is a constant thing.It need not be a husband or child.Someone who is worth all your love.I don't think that a lovely girl like you wont be having some companion you like and love so much.You do have a purpose my friend.

For me, the best reason to live is my family and their future. Whenever I feel down, I always bear in my mind the picture of my family. They want me because I am their life too and being a hopeless is not for me.

For me that would be my family and friends in particular my husband and children. They mean the world to me :)But there are also a few friends I dont think I could live without!!

if eating is your reason to,live, where do you get your food? you must work and that will take most of your time and you will only eat 3 or 4 time per day. mostly, some people live for their families and friends, but you have a nice answer. thank you for you replay. good luck.

I live to help others. I live because sometimes there are people in need in ways that few can help. I live because I can look those people in the eye and say "I've been there, and now look at me!" :P I live for my son, and all the other people that I love. Above all, I live because of my Gods, their kindness towards me, their trust in me, and the jobs they have given me to do.

about one week ago,i wrote an article with the name:the meaning of life.Everyone has thought a lot about this boring question but there is never a answer that's acceptable for all,i'm afraid.It seems many people feel the life is meaningless and boring.We always lost our way and cofidence of the life when we feel tired.Many people say:i want to jump from the building!i want to die!But just a few people do as they say.why?why most of us continue to live though we found it's so boring? In my mind,because everyone has something that he can not drop easily in the world.For me,it's my parents.I just don't want they feel to sad!I think i have the responsibility to give feedback to them.This is the reason to live for me.

yes i strongly agree, many people find life so boring but actually they enjoy it that way. many people wants to die but actually afraid of it. sometimes i feel that too, i find life boring but actually it's one of the "spices" of life, a reminder that life itself is a serious one and we have to live and savour every moment of it. thanks for posting.

this discussion might have many different answer,I can think of many of them for myself,but if I must pick the top one there,I would say : find out who you are,and also find out what is the world around you,and find out how to fit youself in this world. this is the answer after I ask myself for long long time.

as the saying goes "know thy self". it is like living your life to the fullest and see what is it's all about. but, mostly life of humans evolved in companionship that is why you can find answers here are family focus. because i think at the end of the day you have nothing but family. your friends might turn their backs on you but your family i dont think they'll do that.
