What Does It Mean to Live Fully?

Updated: Oct 25, 2019

I would dare to say that most of us are seeking to live fully. We are constantly seeking for more ways to feel happiness, fullness, satisfaction, etc. We have a tendency to try to numb our negative emotions and we live a life thinking that that’s the way we are supposed to live.


So how are we supposed to live? What does it mean to live fully? It is these questions that I know many ask themselves that I would like to address in today’s post.

The definition of living fully is going to be different for everyone. One thing that I must say that applies to everyone is that in order to live fully, it is YOUR meaning of living fully that matters most. No one else’s matters when it comes to you living your life.

Knowing this, not just with your mind but with your heart as well, is the first step to living fully.

You are supposed to live according to how you define life, as long as you are not hurting yourself or others. I mention this last thing because there are times when the things we do hurt not only us but others as well, but that is another topic to discuss on another post. You are meant to live without any toxic feelings poisoning you. You are meant to always express yourself in a way that is appropriate for others as well.

What does it mean to live fully? In order for you to know what this means, you have to master yourself. You need to understand and know yourself in such a deep level. It is then that you will be able to live authentically, which leads you to living fully. For this to happen, you need to be willing to take responsibility of your life. Living fully requires you to live according to your own meaning of living life fully.


I used to be one who used to worry about what others thought of me. I can tell you from personal experience that this will cripple you. I used to be one who used to take other people’s thoughts and truths as my own. I can tell you from personal experience that this is one of the fastest ways to your void and feeling lost. I used to be one who used to go wherever the wind would blow, meaning that whatever others did, I would do. I can tell you from personal experience that by doing this, you lose your power.


I didn’t get to the point that I am in by doing the same thing I did before. I got to this point by mastering myself and by this I mean understanding myself. By doing
