I Want to Live Life to the Fullest

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 24,779 People

    We all perceive a full life differently.

    With that out of the way, I'll explain what I consider a full life. To me, a full life is a life spent doing whatever it is one loves and spending time with loved ones. Vague and cliche, huh?

    As many of you already know,

    I have lost both my mother and my best friend to cancer. The thing about cancer, specially in the final stages, is that you know the end is coming, and it leaves you time, sometimes too much of it, to reflect on your life and what really matters. What struck me the most is...

    True To Yourself.

    No matter how old you are there's a lot of temptation in life. Whether it's temptation to have sex, do drugs, or do things for money... They're everywhere.   But there's one temptation everyone always seems to fall for.  And that's the temptation to change yourself for other...

    than everyone I'm surrounded by. I have dreams and goals.. But it seems like everyone else is just settling. Why not explore the planet and do something wild? I don't get it.
