    What's the point of living life when we are just going to die and then the world will eventually end. This question is one of the causes to why I struggle to be motivated and do anything in life atm, even stuff like getting out of bed

    Enjoy life. Have fun. Make memories. Die knowing you made the most of it.

    The point in life is to make your own purpose out of it and find your own meaning. Enjoy yourself doing what you love, always try to help others whenever you can and die feeling satisfied with what you have achieved.

    Life is mysterious you are right. But there is a purpose to everything even if it seems unclear to us now. You sound like you might be going through a rough patch which is totally normal. Do tell someone who cares about you soon though. If not a friend go to the g.p. or call Mind or the Samaritans for free non judgemental advice. We all struggle but that in itself is not always a bad thing as it pushes us to find the answers why we feel as we do. Good luck.

    It doesn't have to have a point exactly... I think it's more what happens between when you become fully aware you won't live forever and before you realise you've lived a good life and are are not afraid of dying. I think it's mostly making good and bad decisions, being happy and sad, going through love and heartbreak, hating and loving, experiencing life to its fullest and sleeping till noon. It's about working, changing jobs, studying, exploring, travelling, meeting people that you like and meeting people that you want to forget. It's about hobbies, what makes you happy, what gets you going etc. Amazing food, fantastic cultures, great places to visit, trying new things that get you out of your comfort zone.

    Life isn't always great. We have to work hard, we have to spend years and money on studying, we have to work hard and wait for weekend and some time off but if everything was easy then life would be boring.

    It's about finding out who you really are and what you like and what you want from life. It might come to you when you're 17, it might come to you when you're 25 or it might come to you when you're 50.

    Just live every day.

    the answer is as simple as your question. (hope you beilve in god)..he gave you a life of a human being ; most of advanced amd specialised. He gave youthe chnace to explore the beauty of his creation. He gave youthe honour teh venture and discover the point of life , discover the meaning of life.
    No doubt its all gonna end one day , but be obliged to have a life.

    To know the point of life sit alone at night look at the sky ..see the beauty of stars , of sky, get spiritually attached to it.


    Life is way too beautiful but as it is said "beuaty lies in the eyes of the beholder!"

    There is no meaning to life, you have to create your own meaning to life by yourself. (Quite contradictory isn't it?)

    Do you have someone or something significant in your life that could give you motivation to be better or feel better? That could help

    Errr, i'm more of an agnostic guy tbf. I mean I kinda believe in Jesus but I dont believe that god created the earth in 7 days for example. I may sit alone at night in summer when it's less cold and windy lol as atm I think freezing to death would ruin the moment haha. I love your view on life though
