    Dying happy v leading a full life

    Something that has been on my mind lately. The past few months or so, where I'd juggle this concept around in my mind. Let's say for instance a gamer (competitive or non competitive) plays video games all the time, and has a mediocre social life, has a job, etc... and dies within that lifestyle, versus someone who travels often, has a great social life, a great career and whatnot and leaves this world within that lifestyle.

    Did both individuals die happy AND leading a full life? And I guess to tie it in, are those concepts both one in the same or are they completely different? Is leading a full life, or even being happy for that matter subject to one's individual view or is there an overall belief on what both are?

    I appreciate all opinions on this matter. It almost applies to my life as well :)

    Just depends i guess.
    If the gamer died doing what he loved to do and traveling wasn't something he wanted to do then he's dying happy.

    If you want the truth of it, the sad truth. There's no point to life except the point you make for yourself. We all are gonna die and cease to exist and likely will eventually be completely forgotten at some point. So to say whether someone led a full life is to give meaning to life for other people. Only that person can say whether they led a full life.

    tl;dr A full life can be anything as long as it was what the person living it considered a full life.

    I mean logically speaking living a happy life is just calculating dopamine/hr across a lifetime. Some people irrationally want to sacrifice their dopamine to make a legacy for their dead carcass, and that's okay too, however futile.

    I say it's a game of convincing yourself you're happy, or convincing yourself that you're meaningful. If you can't do either you're just wasting your time.

    Dying happy v leading a full life

    I will skip the happy part for now, but leading a full life is up for opinion, the person could have lived a life where their parents hated their life choices, and the person used the choice as an out, to try to make themselves happy, whether they were actually happy or not is also up for debate. In other cases, the person chooses their life, they receive support from family and friends, and are genuinely happy with what they are doing in life. I think leading a full life is a moral joke to be honest, we all live a life, we all die, so what makes our lives worth anything if we know we all die at some point anyways? You should weigh your happiness on how you value your time, and if that value of time is actually making you emotionally happy. Persay, someone decides they want to go on a date with someone, and they don't enjoy it, but the other person asks for another date, and you being the nice person say yes, you then aren't enjoying yourself anymore. We all make dull and strong decisions that make us who we are.
    TL;DR We are who we are, and if we lose what we had, then so be it, does it really matter?

    Happiness is subjective, for example if playing Runescape gives you 8/10 happiness and travelling with friends gives you 5/10 why shouldn't you pick what makes you happier. I know that its not this simple and yes you should experience everything because how else are you going to decide what is going to make you happy. In my opinion balance and perspective is key.

    The most important consideration, company, and insight come from within.

    Life is short and meaningless. However, if I was to only think in the moment, and chose what makes me happy at that exact time I'd just sit in bed, watch netflix and eat bacon sandwiches. However I understand that this isn't sustainable for me.

    You may be happy gaming at this moment, sure, it's fun. But do you want to be doing this when you are 40 years old? Surely not.

    It's about striking a balance between what makes you happy right now, in this moment. But also investing time into your future, to secure future happyness. Have part of your day outside of your comfort zone and try new things.

    This way you can be happy right now, and reduce the possibility of missing new opportunities.

    Happiness is achieved through a persons choices. At some point in life, responsibility may outweigh the pursuit of happiness.

    Dying happy v leading a full life

    Did both individuals lead lives they were happy and felt full with? That's the answer to your question.

    I believe it comes down to individual view. Nobody has the exact same interests/passions in life, we're all unique.

    A 'happy & full life' , in my opinion, is surrounding yourself with what you enjoy and doing something that makes you feel like you have a purpose.

    I feel out of the two listed it doesn't matter what kind of lifestyle you live, some people like travelling and being social, others don't.


    Just be yourself.
