I have found 'satisfying life' is more frequently used than 'satisfied life.'

What is the difference between them?


When you look at them, they both appear kind of the same.

But, a "satisfying life" means the person living that life is continually satisfied in that life as opposed to a "satisfied life" which indicates the life was satisfactory at one point of time but not so anymore.

Consider these examples.

  1. "The money is good these days. I have a satisfying life".

  2. "I have had a satisfied life. But after my dog died, it became hellish."
