Many might declare various circumstances, but my estimation is that a life worth living is simply one that is intentional and engaged.

Or as Socrates said, "The unexamined life is not worth living."

These aren't universal questions and answers though, they need to be sought out individually and culturally.

A life where you know that death is close and is inevitable and by choosing to continue to live you will just be extending your pain and suffering.

It's subjective. A life "worth living" is a life a person wants to live; a life not worth living is one where the person has lost their will to live.
"Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe." - Frederick Douglass
