FULFILLED: meaning and examples
Good morning. Today's word is: fulfilled (adjective) It means: to feel happy and satisfied, especially because you are doing something important or you are using your abilities. Example 1 Jack and Jill have their own business. Although they work long hours, it makes them feel so fulfilled that they don't mind dedicating all their time to it. Example 2 If you are no longer fulfilled by your relationship, perhaps it's time to separate. There is also the equivalent -ing adjective (fulfilling), which is very closely related to fulfilled. Example 3 For the moment, raising my children is fulfilling enough for me. Perhaps when they are older, I will need to go back to work to continue feeling fulfilled. Remember that we use -ing adjectives to describe things and -ed adjectives to talk about feelings. For more review of the difference between -ing adjectives and -ed adjectives, see the Daily Vitamin from April 14th, 2004.
