well my answer would depend on how i interpreted your question. To only survive you dont need anything but physical body needs. To truely live a life i think you definitly need a purpose but you also need love...WOW that sounds gay (in the bad way) but i still think it to be true...u need someone to care...even if its just yourself...:)....loving yourself is always good....even though most of the peeps i know (and myself) dont.
yeah...well i thought it was important enough to be separate...guess u r right though...and most of the time, no i dont love myself. all of my mistakes r laid out for me to see, and when all the sins r revealed how could anyone love a monster like me?.....WOW, that rhymes...lol
To be honest with you all I personally think that having a purpose and religion and all that actually stop you truly living, its just a personal thing but that all just gives me another thin to worry about, all I think is necessary is companionship (ie my dogs) I believe this because when I was younger I got really stressed and didnt necessarily enjoy my life that much but now I just live every day as it comes and in all honesty its so much better. I think that the hardest part is actually letting go of the idea of having purpose and religion and everything but once you do nothing seems to matter any more. That seems really selfish and to be honest it probably is a bit but thats just me and the way I live.
