Many may argue and say yes or no, or even be undecided on whether there is a difference between living and being alive. My classmates’ state there is a difference. They argue being alive simply means you have a pulse, you wake up every day, and you hate what you do; and to live you have confidence, you’re doing what you want, and you love it. I definitely agree with them personally. To be alive is something that is given to you, life. To live, you’re living your life with no regrets, you’re turning your dreams into reality.
Thank you, yes we have to be able to enjoy life with no regrets that is living, we have to love it so we can enjoy life. Living is happiness, and being alive is not liking what you are doing.
Being alive is waking up in the morning opening your eyes and thinking what is your day going to be like. Living is doing what you love, it can either be going to school, work even being a house wife. Having happiness in your life, doing something you get up everyday for. The difference in being alive and living are enjoying what you are doing in life.
If you are working, going to school or staying home. You, have to be able to love it because, that is living. If you hate staying home or hate your job that is being alive, realizing that your spending every minute opening your eyes and hating it. The most important thing to do in life is to be able to enjoy every moment of your life.
Yes i agree with you. One has to enjoy what they do for a living to know what it feels like living life.
To be alive is to be able to breath the whole day through. Is to be able to move around, is the function of opening your eyes every morning. To live is to be joyful about being alive, is to put your heart in everything you do. Is to enjoy even the little things in life,toh sing while you comb your hair, to dance while you vacuum. To live is to find joy and purpose in everything you do.
I definitely agree with you when you stated "To Live is to find joy and purpose in everything you do" because when you're living you are simply enjoying life.
The difference between living and being alive well there's much to say.
Living is basically living life to the fullest and enjoying every aspect of it. Being alive is basically just being present and being aware in life but just living a simple life not chasing something major. A example of living is going out enjoying life but at the same time be taking care of business that can help you in the future. Like being a business major and still having time to hang out with family and friends. A example of just being alive is just having a simple life having a 9-5 job not really looking to advance in life. I feel that everybody should be living life and everything will turn out great.
I agree with what you wrote cause like you said being alive is simple and plain but to be living is to be alive and more.
The difference between living and being alive is that one involves having life and the other involves living life. anybody can live such as living their life, but to be alive is those who are wiling to be more adventurous with their lives and do stuff that can sometimes risk their lives. so anyone can have life but to do something with said life is a different story.
The difference between living and being alive is that being alive wasn't a choice. But living is a choice and you get to choose how you live your life. For some living might be being successful and making money but for others living might be being happy and enjoying the simple things. I don't believe there is a standard value of living, it just comes down to individual perspective. Find what makes you happy and what brings meaning to your life and live, because you only get one life.
i do believe you get to choose how to live your life, but does it make you happy. If your being successful and making money, do we enjoy it?
I totally agree with my classmates about theres a difference between living life and just being alive. I believe living life is being able to do what you desire, living without fear or regret, living your life as if it is the last, living based on your own persona instead of someone elses expectations, and just enjoying life to the fullest rather than just being a breathing individual. Being alive is just having a pulse, breathing and liveing life without meaning nor purpose. Opening your eyes in the morning and realizing that you have one more day in your life span to live meserably.
The difference to me between living and being alive is that being alive is just that. Being alive to me means just existing because you have to. Because you have no other choice to. Living on the other hand is making the most of what you're given. Trying your best to make memories and loving to your full potential. Exploring the world and what it can offer. That to me is living, being alive really has no meaning then just existing. That is what it means to be living versus being alive to me.
You described the difference of the two very clearly. I believe having full control of your life is what it means to be honestly living.
Being alive, is to feel emotions down to your core and to be living is to be on autopilot.
I believe that to just live is to wake up, eat, sleep, and repeat. There's nothing special to it. Just living a normal life doing normal things with no desire to go experience risks. Living life is waking up wanting to be different and do things others wouldn't imagine. To live is to do whatever you want and everything you can in this short lifetime.
To be alive means to live day by day with no enjoyment of what you do. To not truly live the life you want. Having the same schedule everyday with no change. To be living is to enjoy every aspect of the moment. Live in the moment without questioning the consequences of your choices.
Some people don't know the differences between living and being alive. Although it sounds similar, these words have distinct meanings. If I just wake up in the morning, eat every meal, and go to work, I am living but at the same time I am dead because my life doesn't have a purpose. Instead of living I enjoy to work with my coworkers, to walk in the park with my friends or girlfriend, to eat with my favorite food with my family, and to do everything that I love, I am being alive.
We are all alive at the moment but only some individuals are living the life they want to live. We are alive in a place where pressures, traditions, and boundaries shape society. We can happily be alive by waking up to a comfortable daily routine similar to others around us but one that is living chooses to do what he/she desires.
To be alive for me is to always have a good disposition for all the things we do, always see the good side of all the situations, even when things are not as we wanted to be. Accept ourselves as human beings with mistakes and accept the others in that way too. Do not take life so serious because life is short anyways and if ut is like that... just enjoy it ;)
What is the difference between living and being alive?In my perspective i have a theory being alive its a daily routine and being alive in my opinion is something that makes you get up everyday and enjoy life.
I see a huge difference between living and being alive. To me living is enjoying and learning things as they come and being alive in my perspective is to be grateful for what you have. We take so many things for granted and we don't see what's in front of us nor do we appreciate it.
It's really easy to keep yourself alive, we all do it. the dog does it, the trees do it. heck anything with some kind of puls does it. It's no deal to breathe, to walk, to run, to feed are self and maintain the necessary life stofe it takes to keep us alive . It's really nothing that great to keep are self alive,we all do it. The real accomplishment is living ! Living is refusing to let the problems of life drown you. Living is never missing a moment of your life.
