You know that the world is shit, people die, there are terrorists. You don't know what to believe anymore because nearly everything is full of lies and you absorb the media, news and the internet without witnessing the truth for yourself. You cannot be 100 percent sure whether god made you or that evolution is the answer. You're just here to live life, get a job, get a family and maybe if you're lucky, do something you're really good at and enjoy doing for years on end. You know that one day you will die and then all that you have done will have been basically for nothing because you won't be conscious and eventually, the people who knew you and your talents, will be dead too. you're constantly surrounded by negative people and a lot of your life, you will be hurt pysically and even mentally by yourself and things/people around you. my question is... why do you keep going on with your life?

Well I agree with you mostly, with the whole nihilism thing. Subjectively I'm a hedonist though; I aim to be as happy possible and to make as many other people as I can as happy as I can, because when life is objectively meaningless, why not? I don't think the world is shit, yes there are terrible things that happen but there are also wonderful and amazing things, and people who love each other and want to help. When it comes to death, that's not something I fear nearly so much as pain tbh; I don't think I'll know much about it when I die anyway, I just hope I get to live a good life first. What I'm more scared of is losing loved ones to death; I know it happens to us al but I want to protect them all for as long as I can..
Are you okay ThatTomGuuy? This is deep stuff, I feel like maybe you could do with a hug? *hugs*1

My life has been nothing but suffering but I have HOPE. Life doesn't always have to be full of suffering, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. How long it takes there, I don't know but when I do get there, it will be so worth it. I haven't enjoyed much in life but I know there is a lot of joy out there1
