What Is The Right Way To Live?

I've been wondering what other peoples oppinions are for how we are meant to live our lives.

I don't feel that there is a right way to live, or a wrong way to live. It is peoples own choice. Some people aren't meant to live the cookie-cutter life. Go to college, get married, settle with kids. That's not what I want, at all. I want to see the world, I want to influence people. Yet some people frown upon how I talk about my future. 

What's your oppinion? Is there a right way to live? And if so, what is it?

I think if you're lucky enough to be one of those people who's heart is telling them what they need to be, follow that. It may not be what everyone else thinks is the "right", or "normal" thing, but following what your heart tells you that you should be will make you happy.


My problem is that my heart is telling me to be something that I don't really want to be, and it's confusing.

there is no right or wrong way to live, just different ways. i, personally, will never have a desk job, i know i wouldnt be able to cut it. same with school- i hate school with every fiber of my being and go to college online part time. it's all about personal preference.

I know God is sometimes a sometimes a sensitive subject, but I personally believe that you must live how God wants you to. Pray. Read your Bible. Let Him guide you.

Personally, I think the only RIGHT way to live, is what feels right for you. If you want to settle down with kids, then do that, but, if you want to travel and such, then, you should do that. You should follow what your heart says, with a little bit of common sense (like, don't kill all your kids just because your heart says you don't want them anymore.)

The only right way to live is your way.  Don't let other people tell you what to do, just follow your plans, and live the happiest life you can.
