View Full Version : Best part about living

I bolded the important parts in case people just wanted to get to the point.

I didn't know where else to put this but I just wanted to share it badly. For context I was with a coworker at lunch break and we were just mindlessly chatting when I decided to ask her: "What is the best part of living?"
I don't know why I said it or if I meant it to come out seriously, I thought she was just going to give a joking response but she looked in the sky for a moment thinking before replying. "The best part about living... is that you are alive, don't you think?"

It sounds a bit stupid when writing it down, but to me at the time is was really powerful and made me think for a long time after. I wasn't able to give her an answer since I've never thought about it myself. Even now I'm still not sure but it has changed my look on things.

Sure, it's better to be living than be a plank of wood or something :P

A really close friend of mine recently brought up his battle of depression a few nights ago, and I didn't realize how much we shared in common. It's a big question we tried to answer - life can seem so superfluous sometimes :yeah:

The best part of living for me is that I get to wake up everyday and start a whole new adventure.

Having the right to learn, having caring parents and friends, and planning a future

"The world is not a pleasant place to be without someone to hold and be held by."
^ That is my response. I think one of the best parts about living is having someone to love and be loved by, hold and be held by, care and be cared for. It's a great feeling and experience that brings us warmth and happiness in its purest form.

I like living because the alternative seems rather dull by comparison.

when I was little I used to think that I wouldn't care about death by the time I got old, but now that I'm a bit older I've realized it doesn't work like that. yikes.

I don't know what the best part of living is for me, and that in itself is the best part I think. Every day has new potential for me to find something I didn't even know I needed, and that's exciting and mysterious and maddening all at once.

The struggles and conflict

And then the overcoming of them

I'd say the best part of living is going places and doing things you've never done before.

Agree. Or finding a hidden talent.

Loving, being loved, exploring the world, discovering yourself, so many good things about living and being alive. For me, everything about life and even the not-so-good parts of it can be beautiful. But...I think the best part about living is that you have so much to give to the people around you; kindness, support, compassion, friendship, and love. And so much more. Just - the gift of giving.

It's traveling in my opinion. When you travel you can discover so many things, get to know new people and cultures, ... In short a life without travel would be too boring.
