    • Why not? Fear of death? Curiosity about the future? Deep down there is a reason.

  • I am mighty beyond comprehension, and if I've been blessed as such, it is for one reason and one reason only.. and that is help, and guide others.

  • This might be a little long so I'm sorry ahead of time.

    Honestly, I used to only live for my brothers, mother and sister. I did try to kill myself once though, and thankfully I am still alive.

    I was very depressed so the only reason I waited about 2 years to attempt suicide after I became depressed was so I would still be here for my family.

    Currently though, I am still alive for not only my family, even my friends, I'm alive for me. I only had one reason to still be alive, but now I have at LEAST 3, one of them being me and my future.

    • Inspirational. I read this story about really intelligent people are suspectible to activist because they understand just how shitty the deal is. Guess we were able to figure out its best to ride it out then just ump back into the void since we will get there eventually anyways.

  • My son. He is everything that is good in my life.

    I can be having the crappiest day or the crappiest week... we all have those times when we've just had enough... and a cuddle, a smile a laugh, a kiss from him, or even just watching him sleep is all it takes to make it all worth it.

    He's my reminder that I can get something right.

  • For the immediate, my children.
    For the bigger picture I believe I'm a daughter of God with the ability to live forever and become godlike myself. How's that for existential?

  • Converting oxygen into carbon dioxide and watching u guys is pretty much it. I mean really humans have absolutely no use to this planet and in addition their overpopulation and disgusting arrogance and pollution is having devastating effects on nature.
    If all bees would go extinct this planet would die - if all humans would go extinct this planet would actually recover from all the bad they did to it after a while and become better than ever.
    Being human is a truly a reason to be ashamed and I'm not even trolling, I'm dead serious.

  • To be honest, I think I'm not living yet. For now, I just exist and breathe.
    So, I haven't found my reason for living.

  • Doing what god ordered us to do... live a good life just with doing his orders and avoiding mistakes... study... love... get a job marry get kids.. raise them just by always being in the right track... being a good living person that want good to the world... then we all going to die... when we die.. if we were good enough... we go to jennah (heaven) ... if we were bad people.. then jahanam (hell) would be our new home.. so as a summary... live the life we want in limits of god.. just to win immortality in Paradise one day... Amiin !

  • Tbh, my reasons change daily.

    Sometimes its for the happiness of other people.
    Sometimes it purely to explore and experience my own curiosities about life.
    Sometimes I just don't have any.

  • So this is what I basically think about our existence. There is no reason or purpose to life. We were born and sooner or later we will die. But since we are here we should live our life however we want. We don't get to force other people to live a certain way. We are all free to eat, fuck, marry, drive or whatever else so long as we are not hurting someone else or forcing other people to do things. But as a society there has to be rules. You have to pay taxes, have to have car and health insurance, all the religion and culture and govt are man made to try and make life better for people. And sometimes take control. I want my life to be about enjoyment. I'll do whatever I want and I work at a job so that I can afford to do the things and buy the things I want. What other people do is none of my business. That's it. Life is easy, we humans make it much harder on each other by doing shitty things on each other. But yeah, there is no meaning. bwe are just here and every generation seems to be replaced by the next every 85 in western countries.

  • My reason for living is to serve God and study his word. I'm not truly happy here, but he sent his son here to die for me, so if I committed suicide, it would be like spitting in his face. All I want to do is to please God and hopefully when it's time for me to be judged, I'll be judged favorably.

    • Thats not a reason to live, my friend.

    • I bet your one of those guys who find that the only value in life is fucking as many girls as possible. Bro there is so much more in life then that. Eat good food, watching movies you like, playing games you like, going wherever you want.

  • Because as far as I know, life is the only reality I am capable of tolerating. What if death is even worse?

  • i think my reason for living is just to accomplish as much good as I can and then share it with the world. I'd like to travel and really experience the world, maybe go on a trip with the peace corps or a volunteer group to some adventurous backwoods country I didn't know existed and fight zombie anacondas with a machete... ok so maybe not that last part but I haven't ruled it out yet😄

    • What brings you enjoyment?

    • A ton of things :). I like a lot of entertainment like music , tv shows, books, movies, some viseo games I like beeing on the interner but I also like fresh air nature, swimming in the river playing beachvolleyball traveling. I like good food, I like lying in bed and relaxing, I like the fresh air after it rains. I'm pretty lazy but if I get into it I can achieve a lot. I like the feelingwhen you've finisbhed something and done a good job. I like working in a group the feeling of community. And of course I like girls :) especially cute ones. Sry for writing so much but I couldn't really answer this in a short way :P.

  • Survival. I live to not be dead. Woo

    • Precisely why I didn't want to ask it that way.

    • Thus the dilemma. You ask either a nonsense question people mutually agree to read improperly or you all the proper question and get into trouble.

      But that's how it goes.

  • To eat pizza and poop.
