Is life worth living?

Life... Why do some people opt to end their lives when others fight with all their strength just to live? Why do others kill people when others do everything they can just to save lives? Is another person worth dying for? How valuable is the life of a human being? When can you say that your life is worth living?

When you have had a fall and you tried to get up as quickly as possible! When it's tough but you managed to find that little courage to go on! When you give something to someone no matter how small it is and said "You need it more my friend!" When your experience taught others they shouldn't do because it hurt! Yes life is worth living just like the stars which are constantly shining but we do not see them often until the dark hours!

Thanks. It has never been easy and never will! But should we just sit and do nothing? At least we can say "I've done my best!"

Hi! so many questions but I'll do my best to answer them all. *People think that killing themselves is the solution to all problems. Its not, believing in God makes us strong -remember God gives us challenges to make us strong and something to learn from. * Every life of a human being is important, we all have missions but it is for us to search what that mission is. We are created with a reason. *We can say that your life is worth living once you are contented. Some says that being contented is when you accomplish your dreams or made a difference with one's lives. It depends to the perspective of one's self.

Thank you very much. You reminded me of one very important thing: "God makes us strong". I guess I sometimes tend to forget some important truths in life when I find myself stuck in difficult situations.

It really depends on the individual...there are people who are not strong enough to handle problems...and there are people who are very optimistic that no matter how bad things are in their lives, they keep their faith and maintain a positive outlook. That's just life...that's how it goes.

True... It's just a matter of perspective. And I agree, that's just how life goes.

Yes life is worth living, we can only live once so we must be strong and face all the troubles and problems that make life more challenging! People who fights with all their strengths to live is strong people while those who choose to end their lives are the weak and selfish ones who only think how to escape their problems quickly.

Thank you. That's very encouraging. I guess the "strong" ones should then try to help the "weak and selfish" ones to cope with their problems.

Life is always worth living, everything that happens has always a purpose. Happiness keep everyone sweet and more loving. Sad moments give us lessons to learn for the second move. It helps make us a better person if we opt to learn the lessons it gives.
