Meaningless

Life has no meaning. You're born, then you die, and life goes on as usual. You're just another rotting corpse. Nothing has been lost. All of your memories, friends, family, and experiences will fade into obscurity. History. Nothing more. Everything you experienced won't matter in the end.

Is It Normal?

  • Life has no meaning to you*

  • Meh, who cares? Sure we all become worm food but that's not going to stop me from eating delicious food, seeing the lovely places outside of NY, and enjoying my life. XD

  • You seem to be new here. Understand that these types of posts aren't unique on this site nor any other site you can make posts.

    Most people recognize that in the grand scheme of things our lives don't matter but that doesn't change that we're here, we are alive even if it's for a short period and due to this we aim to make that short time one that makes us happy until it ends

    There's nothing to gain by adopting this view. Recognizing that our lives mean nothing doesn't change anything, so may as well make our meaningless lives something we're happy to experience.

    I'm going to offer some advice. This isn't a new thought. Don't try to use this topic as something to make you feel different or special, it's neither of those things. We all have thought about this and people can recognize when someone is bringing it up primarily to be edgy. Try to find realistic ways to be interesting to others because this isn't it, this will have the opposite effect you're looking for. People won't find this deep, they'll find it a bit cringe. I don't say this to mock you, I'm saying it because there will be a day you recognize it yourself.

    • Though I have never seen any posts like this, I recognize that posts like this have been before.

      Big lie. Most people try to say life has meaning or waste their time trying to find the meaning, when there is no meaning at all.

      Who said I thought I had something to gain?

      Ah, there it goes. "You're just being edgy." "You're just trying to be quirky." "You're just trying to be interesting" blah blah blah. Enough with the stupidity already. Nobody is here to impress you, saddlegoose. Coming off as interesting to a bunch of internet strangers has no impact. Next.

      • I'm telling you. Most people know that life in the grand scheme of things has no meaning. You are not special, you are not in unique. Everybody has been at this stage you're at and we've moved on.

        Yes, you are trying to be be edgy, the way you type is evidence of that. This is why most people here are mocking you because they recognize it. If you don't want to take the advice that's on you.

        You absolutely are here to try and impress people, we can all see it. I'd gather you're young too.

        • And I'm telling you that most people don't. No, I am not unique or special. Shall we keep stating the obvious?

          "Yes, you are trying to be be edgy, the way you type is evidence of that. This is why most people here are mocking you because they recognize it. If you don't want to take the advice that's on you."

          This isn't really an "edgy" topic. Real cute, goose. They're free to do as they please. Your point...?

          Like I said, nobody here is interested in impressing you, Goose. Why are you so keen on convincing yourself people want to make themselves appeal to you? Are you that stuck-up?

          • That's fine but you're just wrong. This has been a popular thought since before our countries even existed. This isn't a new thought to people, it's a new thought to you.

            You do think you're special for this, you're saying most people don't know this and that you're one of the only few to even ponder the fact. You're trying to humble brag about it.

            It's not an edgy topic, we know this. The point is you're using it to be edgy. We can all recognize this.

            You're not here to impress me specifically, you're here to impress a crowd. I've never claimed I'm the sole one who's fancy you're trying to get, you brought that idea up yourself without my prompting.

            I'd also just have to make this clear. Don't make the mistake of thinking you're the smartest guy in the room here. Humble yourself.

            • There are a lot of people that think this, yes. As for the majority? No.

              Didn't say that. I am saying that it is a lie that most recognize the meaninglessness of life.

              Oh well, Think what you want.

              Okay, if that's what you want to believe.😆

              "I'd also just have to make this clear. Don't make the mistake of thinking you're the smartest guy in the room here. Humble yourself."

              Hmm, says the know it all.

    • Perhaps the OP’s perceived meaninglessness of existence is his mind preventing his lack of talent from making screwing up progress with the enlightenment of civilization.

      A short lived life of drug addiction lowers the social cost of his dependence and his lack of economic contribution to the GDP.

  • If it were meaningless you wouldn’t have made a post about it.

    Mull that over Mopey Mandy.

  • Yeah, but I'm still going to have fun. At least I'll try to have as much as I possibly can while I here.

    Although if you want more philosophical answers the "meaning" or "purpose" of life is either to serve some sort of higher power or to reproduce. It just depends on whether or not you're religious.

    You can either argue that the point of life is to be devoted to whatever religion you subscribe to, if any...

    ...or you can argue that the point of human existence is the exact same as any other life. Plants, fungi, animals, bacteria; they all have the same general goal. Humans are just one of the few creatures with enough sentience to consciously enjoy (or hate) the experience.

    • Nobody said you couldn't have fun. It just won't matter if you had fun or not.

      I am not religious.

      Absolutely not. The existence of humans is pointless.

  • Right, but it takes too much effort to lay there and die. You get hungry then your body starts fighting and you get anxious. Dying is a pain in the ass. Better to live a long miserable life with minimal effort and nothing to look forward to.

  • I think that everyone has the opportunity to make their own life meaningful and to be content. I personally think that the choices we make to try to be happy are what life is about. To be truly happy, and that is enough. If your choices don't make you happy, maybe think about changing them.
