life is whatever you make it. from having those around you socially to individually matters emotionally. life is how you and your interactions with the outside compare and work together. this is also known as nature vs. nurture. life is short, you just have to live it.

Life it self has no meaning, it's up to you to bring meaning to (your)life. All the things you do has a positive or negative meaning on (your)life. So the meaning of live is what you make of it.

Hello, rick! Certainly, life will have different meanings for different people. Some people find no meaning in it at all. For me, the meaning of life is to make me learn. Yes, for me life is purely a way of learning. And how do I learn? I learn by setting my personal goals, my dreams, and trying to achieve them. I learn by trying to be a better human at everyday that pass. I learn by creating relationship with people and understanding more about the complexity of the human mind. Under every lesson you will have thousands of smaller tasks to achieve in which you will learn. For example, in getting a friendship... You have to learn what is trust. You will have to learn how to care for others, how to make contact without sounding rude, and how to help others. On achieving your own goals, you will have to learn how to fight for what you want, you will learn how to see your own mistakes and get better... Many, many smaller tasks! Respectfully, Munhozmib.

For life is about choices. You choose to make your life meaningful or you don't. What makes my life meaningful are the choices I make.

Everybody wants to know why they are here, why are we living and many other questions about life. As far as what I can tell is life is a test. I do believe that we are now facing serious challenges in our life as the world is in the hands of The wicked once. God has given us a destiny to live our life in harmony so that he can destroy this wicked world and restore everything so that we can live eternally on earth. You might think its crazy if your an atheist but life is a gift and therefore we should live it properly and get the best out of it. Serving God, obeying his commands to prove that the Satan is wrong is out destiny of life.
