How would we know what constitutes a good life?The first thing to consider is whether the value of a life is determined by the live-er of that life or by other people. What if your last thought before you died was that you would have a perfect life but when your loved ones sit around and discuss it they all decide that your life was kind of awful.
Is that possible? Could they be right about your life and you be wrong? Or run up the other way? What if everyone else thinks your life was amazing but you die miserable, feeling your life was a total waste. Who’s right then and which of these two options would you prefer?
It’s time to examine your own life and that means asking yourself some big questions like are you living the way you think you should?Are you working toward goals you actually care about how important are these things to you right now?
The choices you make, the way you spend your time, these things are shaping the type of life you lead. Socrates said: “the unexamined life is not worth living.”
