This Essay shows how I think people should live, and the Necessities to do so. This quote is from Buddha "Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment". I think this a good quote that shows how I and other people should live, because if you dwell in the past on relationships, or things that you did for too long you won't be able to move forward in life which is needed if you want to make new relationships, and if you dream of what the future will bring to you too often you'll forget what is at hand, it's best to focus on what you are doing.

Without a basic education the colleges you want to go to won't want you because you don't have the requirements. The fifth, and final thing people need is love because it is what drives us to do everything we do. People need this most so that they have something to help them get through life. But love is much more important then just having others support you. It shows someone personally cares for you. These 5 things are what I think are needed the most to live a life successfully and be happy. I believe people should live doing what makes them and others happy and allows you to enjoy your life. The reason why people should live like this is that if you have a job or do something that you like you wont end up turning to alcohol or drugs to feel good about yourself. But when you are doing something you don't enjoy and you're unhappy you could eventually turn to using drugs and alcohol which can
