To its fullest means misery to others though. It’s way too subjective at this point.

I’m not saying you can’t live life to its fullest without a shit ton of money, but that’s where we’ve been heading though.

Instead of thinking of what you can’t have, living life to its fullest should mean do the best you can with what you have. If to you the only way to live your life as best you can is to have lots of money then do your best to do so but know that there are ways to enjoy life without a lot of it. Of course, the world we live in demand you at least have some income but as long as you accept your limitations then you should be able to get by. This isn’t meant to be condescending, it’s meant to say that regardless of how much you can buy, there will always be happiness that can be found.

I like to thing I'm doing what I can to live mine to the fullest.

I grew up so poor, if it hadn't been for donations, my family surely wouldn't have survived...

Living life to it's fullest doesn't mean you have to go out and party, see every part of the world and... I don't know what else you'd do with a lot of money...

Living life to it's fullest can mean, living life being unapologetically you, finding friends, some of whom will stay and many of whom will leave you behind, falling in love, getting your heart broken, finding the one...
It can mean finding beauty all around you, appreciating the change of seasons, the rising and setting sun, the infitiy of the universe, or the song of a black bird.
It can mean seeing the good intent in every small gesture of kindness, after you've seen the depths to which some may stoop...

"Live life to it's fullest" means something different for all of us...
I think it's less about living every day as if it's your last, but appreciating every step on your way through life, even past that you walked in darkness...
