  • I'd say Truly living means you live life to the fullest. You don't waste time, you take every opportunity that comes your way. If you fail you continue, if you face fear then you work through the fear

    Being alive just means you exist, but don't do what you truly want to do, because you fear failure or rejection

  • do be happy is to be alive. To be happy is to be content. To be content is to accept your life. To accept your life is to accept yourself. To accept yourself is to accept your flaws.

  • being live = existing. Not seizing the moment. Not enjoying every breath tht was given to you.

    Truly Living= Doing the exact opposite of Being alive. They''re seizing life by the moment. They're the ones with their hands up in the sky and screaming out of excitement and happiness regardless of the situation their placed in. They live in every breath they take.

  • Being alive has more to do with breathing involuntarily. Living is when you feel grateful to have that life.

  • Alive: You exist and sustain your own existence.

    Truly living: You try to experience as much as possible and enjoy as many varied things as possible during that existence.

  • You wake up and you know you have something meaningful to do, even if small.

    If you don't know what it is, write down how things you liked to be if anything was possible. Then choose the most important one for you, and start working on it immediately.

    That's truly living.

  • Being alive is just existing. Truly living is experiencing life and not living your life according to what others dictate.
