Reproducing does sound fun, but that's not my meaning of life (Pleased on't get the wrong idea, I have never done the process of procreation.)

LOL when I re-read what I wrote I wanted to say the exact same thing. :P

 

 

But I remember in sixth grade at Catholic school, we had a teacher who said the purpose of life is to know, love, and serve God.

Then in seventh grade at the same Catholic school, we had another teacher. And she said the purpose of life is to be the best that you can be. And that one really stuck with me.

I think the second one is much more true than the textbook definition we had in sixth grade. Whatever religion (or non-religion) we happen to be, we are here to accomplish, and experience, as many good and amazing things as we can. That doesn't mean we need to accomplish the same things, but we all need to try just as hard. Based on who we are, the outcomes may be different, but they will still be our personal best. :)

I do not think that helping others is the meaning of life. Why should we waste our lives pleasing everyone else? We should just try our best to please ourselves (and our Tamagotchis) because we are people too, after all. I like making my friends happy, but not if it makes me UNhappy (e.g. buying stuff for them when I could buy stuff for myself).

I'm not really sure, to be honest. I mean, even if I do find some meaning, it won't matter once I'm non-existent.

Hmm, I just notice this thread.

 

Since I am Christian, I am convinced that God created us for His glory. God gave us an example: Jesus.

So, I believe we have to do our best to live like Jesus, and that is the meaning of life.

you live life once, so make every second count. That doesn't mean be reckless, it means make your life meaningful, not a waste. Spend your life in happiness, don't spend it miserable doing things you don't love. Follow your passion and send every minute doing what you love. Time flies by fast, don't spend too much thinking back in to the past but spend it in the present. 

here's a quote that has stuck with me:

"noodle, don't noodle,

kung fu, don't kung fu

yesterday is history

tomorrow a mystery

that is why today is a gift; the present" (I love kung fu panda)

I don't know. I can't know, really.

All I know is how to live it.

Life has its sucky moments, right? We all get sick, we all grow old and we all die. It's one thing we all have in common.

The secret is to figure out how to let all that be alright.
