12 Reasons To Live

The Unedited Version of Navigating Single Life

I was talking to a young man in his early 20s who has a chronic low mood. This was not my first time interacting with him and just like in the previous encounters, he projected the Eeyore (Winnie the Pooh) personality. He wants life to be easy. He wants life to be comfortable without having to do much on his part.

So, I had the conversation with him about the difference between being alive and living.

Eeyore – Winnie the Pooh

In being alive, you get up each day and do what is required to be done in order to survive. You have to go to work, you have to interact with others, you have to be outside to grocery shop etc. You are going through the daily motions. When you don’t have to do anything, you choose to do nothing but exist.

In living

  1. You are definitely right.
    Challenges are part of living life.
    Without having to experience stress, happiness, anger, resentment, goodness, joy….. You are simply existing; Now where’s the fun in that.

    Thanks for this dear.
    You did good.
