R u living your life?

Live your life for you. - Dear Friends,

R we living our life in the way we want or we are living just for satisfying others, your parents, children, friends, your boss etc. 

This really shocked me when one of my very close friend just told me one day that "Just live your life for your own, don't do any thing for satisfying others", your life you have to live, you have to get satisfied with your work, with your own commitment and  with your achievement. Don't do anything for the sake of others, when others do.

I was just sharing about my experience in on-line earnings, but he advised me that don't always think about money, now you put your effort without any expectations, a day will come to you where u will be on demand. 

The life you have now is only once, live and enjoy your satisfied life.

This advise from him made me think a lot and changed my life style. He is a normal man who has achived and fulfilled his dreams.

Hope u all think about life one more time. Let us not waste our life just for earning money, let us make others happy.

Thanks....... Mylot friends.

This is a very good question. 1/2 of my family is very relious hate to bring it up but I worry what they will think I have be debateing letting my sons each get a ear ring and the first thought was it what is my family going to say. And I really don't know why I carre what they think. My boys both race GO-CARTs and all they complain about is the money we put into it and want it cost, my husband did finally say one day to one of my family memeber do you pay for it. For some reason I live by want my family thinks. But only till it pisses me off and then I will say something. But I feel will feel bad.

Well these days the only thing is that money So I can only live my life on my own if I am successful and have power to control all the things.I really dont agree about living our life for the purpose of caring for others because I have seen it when we care other people takes advantage of it similarly we have to admit that it is good for nothing so you can live your life only when you have power.

Money is important, but at the same time we should not go back of money. Not caring for others, it is developing ourselves for the sake of others. We have to have our own will, wish and we will get satisfied once we have reached where we want to go.?

Right, now I feel like my life is so pointless, I work & spend my money, I don't owe anything to anyone, I don't provide for my family either. I don't have any goals set for the near future either. I don't think I pay any important to money or that I leave live according to anyone else. Of course there's some things I wouldn't do because I know they would hurt my parents. I definetely believe in cherishing the present but when you don't think about others, care for them I don't think you'd be able to find happiness, because it's in the smiles of those close to us that we find joy! It's when if you feel like you've made a difference in someone else's life that you'll feel alive and believe that your life is worth living.

"It's when if you feel like you've made a difference in someone else's life that you'll feel alive and believe that your life is worth living." Voluntary work is just what you need. Because you won't be getting paid for it, you are not doing it for your own benefit, but for the benefit of others. You will be making a difference to people's lives. Good luck with your life, and good luck on myLot. :)

This is just the life. You live in a society where you satisfy someone and somebody else satisfies you. There's a joy in satisfying the others, too. But there's a limit. When you reach it you must stop and say to the world - I HAVE NEEDS, TOO!

But we should be satisfied first. We have live our own living and at the same time we have to maintain our limit as you said. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Know -what you say Know -what you see Know -what you write. which will result in good feelings. If should know money, before earning money, means earning money should be part of your education curiculum. It should be part of your work you do. This should not be the only work you do. If this will be the only work you do, your feelings will be based on this work only. If you are a man, do not do work on behalf of your wife to help her in her job. If you are a woman then do work on behalf of your husband, to help your God, in his work. To help others who does not fall under above , is not your work. If you do this you will act as God, Man can not act as God. Then you know what you will become , if you will want to save your country and save your world. When you can not take the responsibility of your wife, then only you will become a Man. Thanks

it is true that we live just for satisfying other like parents, husband , child etc. that is not living our life, some time i felt i live my own life as i want. but in present situation i can't go for it because they are my own( parents , husband , child) and i can't do anything against them .

Ok i believe there are 2 ways to make sure you have a good life.Live as happy of a life as possible.And be a christian now I may not be able to tell you a ton about the second one because im still kinda new to the whole thing but so far i've felt his spirit so much it made me so called(drunk in the spirit) where it's like your not even in control of you own body.It's like someone is guiding you around even when your eyes are closed.It's hard to explain but all i know is it's worth a shot at becoming a christian because even if you dont believe theres a heaven you have to know that it's better to try andit end up not being there than not trying and it actually being there and going to hell :(.It's like knowing you have to hit a target at night but not knowing where it is but taking a chance anyways because you know if you don't you may have missed a oppurtunity.

"They" say, do what you love and the money will follow. So that is true...it shouldn't be the reverse. I get satisfaction from loving relationships and from being true to myself. My life is one where I am happy, healthy, wealthy and wise and it is a balance of myself and others. There is no black and white but when you are in the grey, it's a matter of constantly checking to see if you are in balance. I need to be balanced, not too much "me" versus "others, I have to care about my finances to do things that fulfill me (travel, go to the theater and sports events), but not be beholden to the almightly dollar. It's a balance... thanks for the thoughtful post. Susan (http://gettingpastyourpast.wordpress.com)
