What is your reason to live ?

Good questions.

Sometimes, yes, I want to live for my own happiness and pleasure.

But you are right, this is not enough.

I want to live so that I can contribute, to the best of my abilities, to making the world a better place.


Yes this is the answer which I would expect to hear from someone as a real reason to live, making the World a better place to live.Why someone would spend all his/her life to make the World a better place ? What is the motivation behind ?

Why not make the world a better place?  It seems like the right thing to do.  Do you have any better ideas?

Human decency for one.   For me, though - it is to make it better for my children and grandchildren by teaching them how to be productive, contributing and ethical.

Hard to say, depends what mood I'm in. But generally-

I love my fam and I live for their happiness. Why is it selfish?

I could say that I`m living for world peace but ... Honestly.. I need only my family to feel myself good

Everyone loves their family but focusing all your life purpose on them is selfish. If you want your family to be happy, you should strive to make the World happy.  Good actions will trigger many other good actions, the bad ones are just the opposite. So you should focus on others to make your family happy. Trying to make your family happy will give much faster results and much shorter effects, while trying to make the World happy will give the results in long run but much more lasting.

I have come from nothing with nothing to my name and 1st generation living in the UK. I work hard to save, buy a house, car assets etc. so I can pass it down to future generations. It will build firm foundations for generations to come and will give my kids a head start in life.

What is the reason that you want to make children ? Why do you want to make children and put them in chaotic environment of the World and make them suffer ? Is it not masochistic ?  

What benefit do you have of working hard to buy some assets and leave it for the use of your possible future children ? There is no logical reason seem behind it. 

Should we not have some benefits to trigger us to take action ?

Yes I can see why you question your parents.

These are solely my views only... I want to be able to pass on inheritance. assets, savings, investments onto my children so I can start building firm foundations for generations to come. This to me is perfect logic and I don't understand how you think otherwise. Why would I work hard for it but then not to leave anything behind for my kids so they suffer through hard times? Is that not masochistic too? Also, hopefully they will continue my family name too.

The chaotic environment is maybe your view and it's perception really. I agree there is lots of bad going on in the world, but equally there is also lots of good. Life is what you make of it. If you focus on the chaos then you will cloud your mind and see the wood for the trees.
