Re: I Feel Lost,Help Me (My View/question on life And so for
What Do you Live For? Whats the Reason you get up everyday and Go On? Why bother? Why Bother.....
Because there is no better alternative.
You are here, you are alive, and you aren't going to kill yourself, are you? So what are your options? You can wallow in self-pity and misery until you're dead, or you can stop focusing on all this dark **** and just live your life and try to be happy. It is a dead end either way, but you can choose your own reaction to that fact. Wallow in misery, or make the best of it. Your choice.
Besides, it's really all about perspective. From this perspective you seem to have fallen in love with--the "ultimate" perspective--of course you will only see pointlessness. In fact, if you examine everything in terms of everything that has been, everything that is, and everything that will ever be, then even the millions of people who have been killed in wars over the ages are merely a blip on the radar. Not even worth a second thought.
So don't look at the world that way. At least, don't focus all your energies on it.
If you look at the world in a smaller light, like for instance just you, your friends, and your loved ones, things really DO matter. If you don't believe me, then why don't you try cutting your favorite person in the world out of your life for good? Do you think that would have meaning to you?
How about the really small perspective. Just your brain, for instance. What if you took a fork and jammed it into your ear until it destroyed just a little piece of your brain, the part that handles all the bodily excretions that you need to do each day. Just a tiny little piece of your brain. Not even a thousandth of everything that makes up your body. Do you think that would matter to you?
Pick a different way to look at and react to things. Life can have as much or as little meaning as you choose.
