The meaning of life is to find the meaning of life. Is it not? We all go through each day trying to figure out which road out the infinite amount of paths will lead us in a better direction where happiness is prominent and society is flawless. However, not every single human being is going to fit on that narrow, one-lane highway to success. Bad choices, accidents, fate, family matters, society, temptation, anger, rage, addiction, and loss of hope can all be deciding factors in opting to choose that wrong path to self-destruction. The adverse thing is, once you've traveled so far down the road, you get so discouraged that you feel like you can never turn back or make up for the "lost time."
‘How to live?’ I’m sure many of us are trying to figure it out. We learn about the meaning of life every second. Many people get lost and most of them think that they know what their hearts beat for and they are successful. Yet, they are just chasing fortune and fame, so as the author, when he was graduated from college. He buried himself
In life, there are many ways you can live, however, the manner in which you live is your choice. In most peoples’ lives, they want to leave this world and say that they were happy and enjoyed every single moment of it. People feel like if they lived a happy life, then that is all that matters. But what if life has more to do than just being happy, what if it was meant for you to change the world or the lives of others? If you changed the life of another person and made them happy, you made a difference. A happy life is a good one, but a meaningful life is fruitful.
Walking through life admiring everything it brings upon you, can bring upon many question about life and what you are meant to be. You can begin questioning yourself and who you are. What your future would look like and how would you get there. All these question are things that cross our minds at one point in our lives. A reason this happens is because of everything we go through and experience in life that makes us want to know and understand who we are as a person. Like Gandhi once said, “Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”(Gandhi, Mahatma). This wise words said by Gandhi

Despite this, it is possible for a person to truly live their life. By looking at examples from Station Eleven and various other books and media, it can be proven that a person
Two characters that will be examined from the film include Andrew Clark (played Emilio Estevez) and Richard Vernon (portrayed by Paul Gleason). The setting of the film takes place on a Saturday at a suburban Chicago high school. The students are arriving for a special session of detention that will take place all day. In the beginning, everyone is sticking with their traditional stereotypes that were formed from other perceptions (based upon the social group they belonged to). As the day progresses, everybody begins to realize that they are more than these commonly held views. Instead, each person has their own special skills and talents that make them unique. Moreover, all the students and adults are wrestling with similar challenges at
In life, no one gets a script or something that tells them what you and or your life will become. On this earth there are many different people. We are all unique, some in amazing ways and some not so much. The truth about human beings is that although we want to believe that all of our peers are good at heart some of them are not. On all occasions the only consistent similarity that all of our lives have, is that we all were brought into this world the same way. From that moment on, no one can tell you what will happen next. I believe who a person becomes in their lifetime, is the product of their environment and guidance. Going to a very diverse high school in New York allowed me to see conflicts that arose when my peers who were products of a bad environments and bad guidance had a different definitions of what good action were compared to my peers who were products of a good environments and good guidance. Now, if that is just one example of two different people who have two different definitions of what a good action might be, then one can only imagine how many different definitions are out there. In the book “The Ethics of Ambiguity” by Simone de Beauvoir there are many situations and examples about how there can be conflict when people have different definitions of what a good action might be. Actions can be good or bad. Its how you perceive the situation in that moment. Under the correct circumstances I think that
Everyone has a life to live; however, there are quite different between the unexamined life and the examined life. In the word of Socrates,” The unexamined life, for a human, is not worth living”, “the unexamined life” means people have no question, they never question the life, and they don’t want to know about the truth, and they don’t know who they are. Those people just get up every day, go to work and go to sleep, keep repeating these and never wonder what is the meaning of their life. On the other hand, the examined life is that people always searching for reasons, they know who they are, and they know who they want to be and keep working hard, try to improve themselves. Therefore, the unexamined life is not worth living because they

Consequently, each person at some point in life asks some question about life. Some ask if they actually want to live the kind of life they are experiencing, while some will ask other questions like “who am I” or “The importance of their
Life is actually mesmerizing adventure and actually have no general meaning. Each and every person has their own meaning of life and it is oneself who renders the meaning of one’s life. Life is an opinion. It’s an idea. It begins with the birth of an individual. One day that body will die, but that opinion or idea brought by that individual is immortal. It persists in this world for many years.
Everyone has a different want in life. Everyone has their own way of how they will live their life. We all have different opinions of the way life should go and how it should be lived. How we should raise our children, how we deal with the loss of a loved one, how we get over someone, how we save money, and etc. Life is full of different opinions and ideas.
