sometmes everything is routinary and very boring.life is a mess and everything seems to be out of control.. my life is like that. no good paying job, no loving boyfriend, no real friends. i wonder why i'm still here breathing but when i come to think of it i realized that there are still reasons not just to live but to enjoy life as well. my dogs makes me happy, my parents don't think that i'm still a child and i can watch the movies i like every night, eat pizza and icecreams, grow flowers in the garden. still a boring life for others but for me, it's enough reasons to live.

i have four children and i am a single parent, i walked out of my husband 9 years ago for he is an abusive person. for me that is not a life worth living, living with an abusive husband and hitting me and our children. now i am the father and the mother of them and i have a life that is not boring but stressful and tiring. BUT it is a life worth living. a life that makes me want to go and fight to survive. yours is not a boring one its just simple and its a cool reason to live.

I have no reasons to live, but have every reasons to die!! lol =D LIfe is boring, with the same routine, seeing same ple everyday, eating the same kind of food, till i'm getting used to it.. PLus, relaxation will always be the same old place, with strangers around me, always being so happy.. However, if one were to be looking at life in another angle, life is not boring at all.. BEcause we are suppoed to improvised on the life we are leading now.. It's our own life, and thus it's in our hands to control it!! Dun be tied down by things or commitments that easily.. hehe ^_^ LIfe is always being opened to changes, and becoming part of it ^_^ SO, that's already more than enough reasons to live!! hehe

Hey, Yea I have a pretty boring life, but that doesn't mean that I have no reasons to live. Everyone has got a reason to live. I also like to eat pizza while watching movies until really late at night. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I once read that life is what you make it. I'm into alot of self help, positive thinking books. Every day in every way you have to think positive. No negative thinking allowed.It took me years to understand that one negative thought could destroy everything I worked for. If you need help in this area try reading The Secret. This book should help change your life around.

I believe god has send us to this world for some reason & not to live & die like animals. It's not that you may be doing something every day, but I'm sure some day or the other, your actions will do some impact on others

Many reasons to live, nature, art, music, books, my family, my friends, my interest in learning new things, playing games, watching movies, etc.

This isn't a question that I ask myself on a regular basis but I have to admit there are days when I feel so low and then this question starts to penetrate my mind! I have some plans and goals for my life and I have achieved a few of them but I have to say things are going far too slowly for my liking! Like you though I tend to focus on the positive things in my life and there are quite a few of those thankfully! I have a lovely one bedroom flat which I'm renting and it's really peaceful here so I suppose I should be grateful for that. I am able to cycle on a regular basis and I should also be grateful for that. I suppose I have a few reasons to live but this list is slowly dimishing over the years! Andrew

hello. It is so good to hear that you have reasons to live. But let me ask you something? What if your dogs have gone away and never to come back. What if your parents are already so old? What if there are no more movie makers? What if there are no more pizzas, ice creams or flowers to grow? What if the things you enjoy are now beyond your reach? How do you think you will enjoy your life? What will you do if you are already alone? What will be your reason to live? Happiness or joy is not found only in this world. I pray you will truly find your very reason to live even if the whole world will go against you, even if the world we live in will suddenly fall apart. God bless you.

I have every reason to live... ok my life is not perfect. i struggle every single day of my life.. but i am willing to struggle over and over again as long as I make sure my son is okay. he is the very reson for my existence... without my son, I wouldnt be working really hard every day. i would easily be contented with things. but i don't. because I want so much for my son.. i want to be able to give him the life i have not lived... i guess that's how mothers really are

ok look life is what you make of it, if you aren't happy with it then you go work on things that you can change about it, learn to excpet things that you cant change about it. my life pretty much bites, i am in my 40's and i have a body of an 80 yr old man. i have pain 24 hours a day 7 days a week. i want to work but due to pain and other things i can't no more. i have no money to spare. but i look at it, as it could so much worst, and there is someone who got it way worst then i do. my reasons to live is my wife, kids, and grandkids. thing i want to do and see before i die i hope.

There are many reasons to live. God is still allowing you to live so He must still have purpose in your life. Doing good works to other people particularly the needy and the bereaved. Try sharing words of comfort to some depressed people and it will surely fulfill your life.

of course we have reasons to live, I have my family and they need me especially my children, thats why I am living because of them they are my inspirations and you know life is beautiful we should use it in a very nice way. we should enjoy life. share the things you've learned and enjoy. these are the reasons why we need to live.
