Sometimes, I can't help thinking this question: What are the meanings of life?



Some may say. "I want to be happy. ", some may say, "I want my children to be happy. "



And I also heard from a TV series line which says that there are four major things for a woman to do throughout her life: get married, have children, help children get married, help them look aftter their children.



I think when we lose a sense of meaning, we get depressed.


I hope you have found your life meaningful.


How do we go about finding a meaningful life, not just a happy one?

Seeking happiness for others gives us a better quality of happiness for ourselves. Look at various things that people are doing and seem happy. Choose any one that fits your situation and give it a go. Your friend's ideas about having kids, raising kids are all true. But if you dont resolve and derive happiness from them, the same activities can make your feel miserable. The meaning of life is to find things that make you happy from within. They might need you to go out and do something for others or with others.

If you think of life as a dark, swirling abyss that forever pulls at your soul
and diversions, called attempts at happiness, are at best temporary relief
then you are not alone.
As a young child you became aware of that death was in store for all of us.
As a young adult you because aware that most people were fighting for the same things
and there wasn't nearly enough of that to go around.
As an older adult you because aware of how much closer death was.
Finally it seemed.. that on this long journey through life, maybe death isn't so bad after all.

So cheer up!!! Your depression won't last forever. {:soso_e113:}
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Life has billions meanings.
Never look for meaning from others.  Only you know what life is for you.
