Thoughtful Question #11

Wow. What a question. I think there is a HUGE difference. It's just really hard to explain. . . I mean, if you just exist, what is the point? Why are you here? If you just exist, you hardly have any purpose at all. Must be boring..
If you are living your life, you have purpose. You have meaning. There are so many reasons to enjoy life and each person has to find their reasons. Their reasons for living. Everyone has them. Not everyone cares about them. I understand that there are a lot of things that are so traumatizing and so emotionally scarring that you feel like you don't want to live. You just exist. You're just there. Taking up oxygen. I hate that! I don't understand why you would do that. Everyone has a choice. Everyone can change their situation. There is always a way to feel better. A way to get through things and come out a better person. There is ALWAYS a way.

"God will not bring you to it, if he can't bring you through it."

I've shared that line on here before, I'm pretty sure of that. It's really true, I think. Only one of two things can happen when you 'fall off the edge of a cliff' - Either God will give you wings or He will catch you when you fall. Isn't that a lovely thought? That you really cannot NOT get through something... Yes, we all need help. In one way or another we all need help. Even if only at certain times. That is why we have friends and family. That is why we have support groups and people to talk to. That is why we have communication. I understand there are tons of reasons for just existing.. but it's just so sad. It's just so wrong. It has to stop. Sooner or later, it has to come to an end. In a bad way, or a good way. (Hopefully good, though).

The difference between living and existing? Love. Happiness. Patience. Emotions. Anger. Sunrise. Sunset. Believing. Achieving. Helping. Caring. Sharing.

What do you think??

You know, I fight this question almost on a daily basis. I know that most days, I'm only existing. Living is to get yourself out there, or just to take each day and spend it wisely, sort of like your last dollar and I sit here most days feeling as though my existence isn't doing my life justice!

But, what can ya do sometimes. I liked this post.

BTW - started a new blog : The Wind That Swept the Holler thought you might like to check it out!
