    I think life isn't too long or too short, it's just right. Think about it, we all have about 70 odd years to do whatever we please.

    existence may be infinite. yet we are each individually here for an infinitesimal fraction of it, not even a fleeting moment in the scope of all of time.

    We spend most of our lives slaving so don't try to justify anything.

    Some days I can't believe how long it feels - but most days, and today, it feels much too short. I get anxious thinking about it; I want to fill it up!

    I think that life can and is short, there are positive and negative things about it being the length it is, I am not sure whether life is too short, too long or just about the right length. With the way technology and medicine is going life is going to get longer and longer till we reach the point of eternal life.

    Yes it is, we spend a third of our lives sleeping.
    Sleep is like a momentary escape from reality.

    I would probably have to kill myself if I never got to sleep :-/

    But think about how much free time we all have in our lives. Yes, we do spend a lot of our life being educated/working but we also have a lot of time to enjoy ourselves too.

    What's the point if life's short or not? We all die in the end and as far as I know, there's no reason for us to be here on Earth. Or maybe we're here to destroy everything idk. We'll probably get killed cause of something like WW3 or something tbh. It's pointless to worry about it.

    3 hours of free time a day? I'm pretty sure there is no job that would employ you for hours that would make that possible. Anyways, 3 hours is a good amount of time, no?

    But if you live up to 90 you would have spent up to 30 years doing nothing basically
