I'm apathetic to life Watch
I just don't see how most people can look at life and think 'This is great! Well worth living!' As far as I'm concerned, almost anyone who's a rational thinker would be like me and say we're going to die anyway, life isn't great and I've evolved not to have the irrational human gene of survival.
Life is simply the time to spend planning your death.
You're all young, modern people on here so you simply won't get it.
I've already planned my death though wil probably have to wait some years or decades before being able to carry it out to the exact specifications I want.
Why am I saying this? I'm not entirely sure, I'm just bored of everything, bored and tired of life and felt like discussing seeing if anyone can convince me that there is a purpose, a point, an excitement to life.
As far as I see, there is absolutely nothing to look forward to in life except maybe the one in a milion shot I may become successful, which considering the large chance of that not happening, it's blatantly not worth the risk of living a miserable, boring life hoping.
What about experiences? Is there nothing like skydiving etc that you want to do?
I think everyone thinks like that at some point in life
I'd say just look at little things to look forward to. Heck, even if it's just a nice meal you're going to eat when you get home! Or a day off work/uni/school/college, or a holiday you have booked, or even 'holiday time' that you can use to rest and chill. Those little things help me get through each day. I'll think about the bigger stuff when I survive the smaller stuff :')
..and then I snap out of it and internally cringe at myself.
Why does there have to be a point to it all though, whats wrong with something being pointless?
We despair when life fails to meet the ideals we ascribe to it, but life is absurd. There are no inherent ideals, there is no greater meaning, there is just life. There's no point in looking for any inherent meaning in life, you are destined to be disappointed by your search, so just embrace the absurdity of life. You have no reason to be unhappy, so choose to be happy. Nothing more to it.
We cannot change what happens to us, life just so happens to be a sequence of random events, out of our hands for the most part, what good will being unhappy help you with? Its undeniable that you can feel good in life from various 'pointless' things. Be it an adrenaline rush from sports or playing a game you enjoy or reading a book you are enthralled by. any of these are events in your life that make you feel a little better. Even if you think these are superficial pleasures, and do nothing to overthrow the greater meaninglessness of it all, so what? There's no denying you enjoyed it, there's no denying you felt a bit better, it did something, it has some value right?
Embrace the smaller pleasures of life, and forget about any kind of grander scheme of things, there's nothing to it, don't spare it a thought. Just choose to be happy doing whatever you're doing.
Oh yeah, and read some Camus.
