Many of us are not eating our favorite food because it may cause us heart trouble. Many of us are doing early morning exercises (although we hate to do that) but that is required to keep us alive. So what do you think is better; live a happy life or live a long life doing things we don't love?

You got my point Rock_nj. Thanks for comments
Thanks for comments @lontimemother i am basically considering patients who are on their bed since long time and there is no hope that one day they will get up but they are still being forced not to eat their favorite food for the sake of long life
That's not how you worded the original question. If they are on their death beds and they are not going to recover, then who cares what eat!
I agree with you @kansasyarn
But do you agree that there are people who like to eat fried foods etc but they don't eat it because that make them sick......
Of course, and they feel like they are depriving themselves which causes them to be unhappy. However, if they changed their view on fried foods then they would no longer be unhappy.
Thanks @dashingscorpio Your last para is what exactly how i feel ...
Thanks for your valuable comments @shampa
Dr, Haddox .. i am really impressed; May God bless you good health
Very true @jlbowden
Please to know your journey and i am happy that at last you got the peace and happiness in your life. Life is precious don't waste it , i was only talking about those who are so ill health that "living more" doesn't make any sense to them . Be Happy
Health is just one issue as far as living is concerned, I was thinking of the general issue of choosing to live longer or otherwise. I was just a bit carried away, not noticing the specifics of your question.
Quite optimistic ... thanks
Being yourself is certainly a good idea thanks @phillippeengel
Nobody have a power of life and death but we do have a power to make our life happy or miserable agreed ? @thatgirl
