    What does "live" mean to you?

    Hello,

    Sometimes I have the impression that life is being turned into a competitive sport.
    For example, those who laugh the most often live the most . Those who can often fly on vacation "get something out of life".

    Is a sad or depressed state no Life?

    Is it the action that defines life? Or is relaxation one of them?
    Do I have to have a lot of contact with other people in order to live? Or do I also live when I walk alone through the forest and enjoy the twittering of birds and the scent of the conifers.
    Does life begin when I find a suitable life partner? , and does it stop when it's over?

    Do I only live when I am young and "beautiful" like the people on the billboards?

    Although I'm a somewhat calmer person, with a certain tendency towards melancholy, I still have Not the feeling of missing out on life.

    How are you doing with that


    Best regards
    Melvin

    Hello Melvin,
    nice subject. Apart from the fact that life is biologically defined by cell division and the ability to grow or by an independent metabolic system, your question relates more to the ideal value of life.
    Personally, I think that the feeling of living is initially independent of psychological or emotional states, or of tasks that we or others impose on ourselves, we tend to ask ourselves whether this life is beautiful and worth living or not. Quality of life can have very different meanings. For some, quality of life is characterized by a particularly active everyday life, with sport and various kicks that you can bring yourself in one way or another, others enjoy the peace and quiet and a long walk through the forest, far away from city life and hectic pace. Personally, I try to find a middle ground or to secure my quality of life as needed. Rest when I need rest, action when I need action. I have very different demands and if I pay attention to my needs, I also feel that my life is fulfilled. There are still one or two needs that I shouldn't neglect, such as creativity and recognition. If I miss out on this, I quickly become dissatisfied.
    Sometimes I need a lot of contacts, sometimes I need peace and quiet. So, my conclusion would be, if I pay attention to my needs, I don't think I can do so much wrong in order to live a full life.

    I think I can agree with that. Everyone will presumably name different criteria according to which they would say they would live a life worth living and fulfilling, because essentially it depends on the extent to which one manages to satisfy one's own needs as well as possible.

    For me personally, I would describe it something like this:
    For me, a fulfilled life is part of it,
    - that I can live in relative freedom.
    - that I can decide as freely as possible whether and when I can be active or calm and relaxed.
    - that I have the opportunity to explore the world on a large and small scale (I am very curious)
    - that I have the opportunity to get to know people who I like and whom I can feel close to
    - that I can also be alone if I want to

    Yes, I like to travel, I like to go for a walk alone in the forest, I like to lie in the grass and listen to the buzzing insects, then like to plunge into the big city again, go to the theater or the cinema in the evening, like to go with nice people or even alone Eating comfortably, I like to occupy myself with various hobbies, so that I don't do anything at all in between, etc.

    All in all, for me personally, this is part of my life ...

    For me, life has a lot to do with freedom, feelings and actions.

    Everything belongs to life. Pleasant and unpleasant. For me, life also means further development. Since you mainly develop further through negative events, these are definitely part of the perception of life - just like enjoying positive events, freedom and self-realization.
