To me the point in life is to experience new things. Whether it be to experience a new emotion, new music, new friendships or partings.
That's what life is to me.

SEX! Okay, just kidding, but biologically that is the 'point of life', for evolution required us to want to / strive to reproduce as efficiently as possible.

The meaning of life, however, is what I think we're supposed to figure out. In your best friends laugh, christmas morning, sunlight in your hair; that's where you'll find it.

Well, what's the point of doing ANYTHING? For me, it's to achieve happiness, and to bring happiness to those I care about. Therefore, the "point" of my life, is to continually seek out happiness in everything I do, whether it be for myself or for others.

The point of my life at the moment is to see what tomorrow brings. Far into the future, probably to grow up and get married, have children, and a job I love to do. I basically just need to stay positive for my future since the present isn't working out too well for me.

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

To interact with people, have a family, do what you want to do.

I'm not sure, I think you'd have to ask me that at the end of my life... Everything has a way of working itself out, I always end up happy, I just live my life as I think is right... But I don't think it has to have a point...

How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.

Personally, mine is just to enjoy yourself and to help others however and whenever you can.

Re: point of life - December 11th 2009, 04:09 AM

The point is to have a good time while you can.
Be the best that you can be today, learn from yesterday, hope for tomorrow, and treat others the way you'd like to be treated. In other words, life is pretty much what you make it. I may also add to prepare for the next.

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

The meaning of my life? I guess it's to prove that no matter how difficult it can get you can make it through. To be happy and healthy, to love and be loved. Make my life better and fight for a better life for my family/friends/girlfriend. In general I want to make life worth living for others.
The meaning of life in general? To make it better for the next generation. :]

Re: point of life - December 11th 2009, 05:46 PM

I feel like the meaning of my life is to help others to the best of my ability, and to get through all of the crap life throws at me to try and stop me from succeeding. I feel like I'm here so that I can help others realize that they deserve to be alive and to be here too. I also think that life is about finding hope in the smallest of things; friendships, music, hugs, smiling, etc. Learning to be happy no matter the circumstances in definitely something to live for. No one can truly tell you your meaning in life, nor can we all be sure the meaning of our own. But I think one reason for you to truly live is simple, finding out what it really is.

This is my all time favourite quote!

Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you can't get them back. So I'm gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you.

“You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”
