Posted 28 September 2011 - 10:36 AM
Today, the teacher asked us to do an essay about What living well means to us, and so, like I love to share the things I write here, I’ve copied it, and translated to English, and so here you go. She asked it to be only 15 lines, so sorry, but it's small :C
Hope you enjoy it, and if you can, comments would be appreciated
See you soon.
What is necessary to live well?
The main goal of every person in this world is to manage to have a good life, with only happiness and without any worries. However, then, there comes the great question : What is necessary to live well?
In order to have a life relatively good, countless things are needed. But, the most important one is to have health. When it is absent, it’s impossible to have a good life. Taking care of health is fundamental for those, whose objective is to have a pleasant life.
Besides health, the economic situation comes right after, occupying the second position. Money isn’t everything, but there is one thing that is true : without it, the life turns difficult, because nowadays, what differs a person from other is their acquisitive power.
Another important aspect in the life of the people is to have a person, who they can surely rely on during hard times, like when you lose a member of your family or a friend. It’s not possible to have a good life, filled with only good feelings alone. Even if a person is surrounded by money, if it doesn’t have a friend nor a family member, it will impossible for it to achieve happiness.
There’s also another thing, which is relevant if you want to have a good, long and happy life. You must not have hatred, envy and any and every other bad feeling. Having only good feelings helps a lot. You don’t need to be, but you can be sympathetic with others. By just doing a small gesture, like opening the door to the others, saying thanks, and doing something for someone if you are able to. You will surely feel better, and the people around you will only wish good things for you.
Through these paragraphs, it’s possible to notice that being able to have a good life isn’t an easy task. It may time time, but everyone can fulfil this goal if they work hard. Don’t forget, if everything seems to be against you, just wait, and you will see that positive things will happen. The important thing is to never give up, no matter how dark it seems to be!

That could become Another aspect to consider is ...
Other sentences could be combined You must not have hatred, envy and any and every other bad feeling. Having only good feelings helps a lot.
Having good feelings helps a lot and try not to have any hatred, envy and any and every other bad feeling. I'm not sure if this is a problem in your native language or not; it says it was translated into English so this next bit might be unecessary based on the language. The fourth paragraph's second sentence should be Even if the person is surrounded by money, if he or she doesn’t have a friend or a family member, he or she will impossible for it to achieve happiness.
As for the second paragraph, just use a sentence or 2 to explain what you mean about health by showing why. And starting off the last paragraph, don't refer back to the other paragraphs like that. Refer instead into the ideas behind them. I know what I wrote sounds a bit critical; it's not personal. Anyway, it is pretty nicely written. Nice job.
