A life that means you.

A life that mean for you.

Are both sentences constructed correctly?

I want to indicate a life that means you and reflects you or the way you want your life to be.

  • It seems like you want to talk about the meaning of life or your purpose in life or your life's purpose. Jan 13 '14 at 19:55
  • Yes I want to talk about that.. exactly.. you get me right..

  • "A life that means you, reflect you, or the way you want it to be" is not a complete sentence, so it is difficult to suggest the best wording for you. Can you give a complete sentence? For example: "It is important for everybody to have [a life that means you]..." Is that the kind of sentence you want to write?

  • Plausible sentences I can think of are: "What is life for you?", "This is your life's purpose.", A life that reflects who you are" and "Live your life the way you want to live it"

It seems to me like you are talking about a life lived such that it demonstrates the special, intangible qualities that are unique to a particular individual. I recommend:

. . . a life that expresses who you are.

If instead you wish to refer to a life lived with a fulfilling sense of purpose, I recommend:

. . . a life that is meaningful to you.
