A good life is what everybody wants. But what does it mean to have a good life? Everybody has different ideas of a good life. Some people think more about themselves, others like to help people. Both are examples of good life, but as long as you are happy with yourself, you are having a good life. In my essays, I'll tell you my ideas of a good life. You might not totally agree with me, but I'll guarantee you will learn something from it. .
First and I personally think it's the most important quality of a good life is happiness. Nobody tell you to get happy, it is something that you have to require by yourself. When you are happy, you feel like you have the power to do anything, say anything, and go anywhere you want. When you are happy, you see everything positive, then you will be nice to your co-workers or classmates. If you are happy, you will have more friends. The more friends you have, the happier you will be. It's like going in a positive cycle. If you are unhappy all the time and not very cooperate with other people, you will most likely to get no friends. When you dont have friends, you feel sad and feel left out. Now you are going on a negative cycle and it's hard to get out of that. So it's important to start of in a positive attitude. .
My second idea is friendship. I think it is just as important as happiness. Like I stated earlier, when you have friends, you can be happy. A really close friend can be a second self. From a Roman saying, "A friend is a second self" can means a friend can sometimes knows more about you than you know yourself. And they are there for you to help you make tough decisions and give advise on life. When you have a friend like that, you can forget everything else, and you can say you are living a good life.
My third point is related to both happiness and friendship. It is the stress. Stress makes people go depressed. Examples of causes of depression are losing a love ones moving into a new country.
