Would you rather live a life that is enviable or admirable?

Hello A:

I don't like your choices.. I'd rather live a life that is successful. What success means to ME probably means something different to you, and that's the way it SHOULD be.

Perhaps you need a different debate.

Abraham Lincoln was successful. So was So was Mao. Do you admire success? Hugh Hefner was successful too. Is his life enviable?

What success means to ME probably means something different to you

What does success mean to you?

Perhaps that’s what you should title your separate debate.

Do you admire success?

Hello again, A:

I don't wanna BE admired or envied in the eyes of somebody else.. By the same token, I admire VERY few people, and I don't have an envious bone in my body.

The truth is, I have NO idea what success IS. Clearly, I don't adopt societies version of success.. I'm allowed to define it for myself, just as you are.. You may think success is financial riches, whereas I might think success is simply feeding my family.

I don't know what success IS for you. If it's financial, and you achieve it, I'm happy for you.. That doesn't mean I admire or envy you..

Welcome to your first step of being an anti communist Trump supporter.

Hello BS:

Well, I'm American, so of course I'm anti communist.. But, I'd kill myself before I became a Trump supporter.

By the way, exactly WHO is cozying up to the old head of the communist KGB?? It's certainly NOT the Democrats..

Hi Excon,

Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.

-Earl Nightingale

I am not sure what your particular definition of worthy is, but I bet it is admirable, and I envy you because of that. ;)

I think admirable would be best. For me, enviable means unattainable for others. Admirable could mean rising above what is attainable or working with the best of what you have. I would rather admire someone for their accomplishments than be envious of them, and I would like the same to be said of me given the two choices.

I like your response. It brought to mind the idea that the primary difference may be that an enviable situation has to do with what you have while an admirable situation has to do with who you are.

Yes, I agree. For me, enviable is more of a negative connotation while admirable is more positive.

Hello A:

Ok, you want me to stick to your parameters.. Here goes.

Both of them invite a conclusion about yourself as seen through somebody else's eyes.. Personally, I don't give a shit what anybody concludes about me..

If you live a life that you would admire in others, then you can regard your life is admirable, regardless of what others actually think.
