Value of Life

How is life valued? Is it valued by the about of money we possess or need to aquire, by true friendship? Whether or not we love or are loved? If we have basic hapiness with who we are or where we are? Maybe the real question is: How should it be valued?
Money
Friendships
Hapiness
Love
Other
All of the Above
None of the Above
B, C & D
C & D

Very good question. All four, only cause without money you cant do any damn thing. At leasr enough for a spree now and then anyways.

A psychologist would tell you that happiness is when each of our needs are fulfilled. We need friendship, because it would be impossible to function without people who appreciate and understand us. We need money, since in this society it is the means by which we acquire the basic food, shelter and protection we need to survive. And we need love to make all that basic survival worthwhile. Through love we discover who we are and our place in the world, though it may not necessarily always mean romantic love or idealistic love or religious love - but love is the truest sense: to give without any expectation of return or reward. Without love, life is hollow and meaningless, an empty vessel.

So how one values life is directly proportionate to the love we both give and receive. You can't put a pricetag on it, but you know it when you see it.

leave it to you to find the logic and medical definition for what I am feeling ... It must be why I keep finding my way back to you.

Good question. I based my answer off of the recent family funerals I have attended. I was great to see almost 500 people at my cousins funeral. On a weekday. I seen all of his friends and family, and the great stories of his life. He was happy, and enjoyed being around friend. I know this is morbid, but it shows what others thought of a person.

I think happiness was high on my list as well ... I think if you are truly happy a lot of other things seem to work out for themselves.

I saw your comment on mzhuny's post today. Go read my blog that I wrote after reading hers. Your value is that of a child of god. Please, do something for yourself.

I answered all of the above. I need money to treat you like the princess that you are. I hope that we can start a wonderful friendship. I would spend the bulk of my time attempting to give you all of the happiness that you can stand. You would love every minute of it.

Ultimately firstly how we value ourselves, believe in ourselves and know in this great adventure each of is a leading light, flawed maybe, but wonderful. Secondly the value that others place in us - our loved ones, our children, our friends and all those whose lives are a little richer for walking awhile with you.

Add all that up and you are precious indeed. Believe.

I voted for B, C & D and then realized that life is difficult without money and time to enjoy our friends and loved ones. My first visit to your blog. I'll try to make it back from time to time!

It was a tough one for me as well... one I have been pondering over for several weeks before I posed it to all of you. Thanks for your input Tiger!

Love is the ultimate for me. Because I have loved and been loved, I have lived. The other things are just icing on the cake.

Why should life be valued? It's not supposed to be bought or sold, it's existed a lot longer the the Western Civ that brought about the concept of valuation.


SweetDarlinAngel replies on 5/3/2006 12:29 pm:
Life existed true enough, but even at it's most primal form there was still a value to it. Mothers who nestlings were too weak to leave the nest would allow siblings to maime and kill the weaker ones. Is that value in and of itself? Perhaps you criticize too quickly, value has always excisted and will continue to do so long after we have deemed what is or is not valuable to civilation today. All living things find value in life, otherwise there would be no fear of death except among the human race or civilized communities we have evolved into. But you raise a very good point indeed, thank you.
