Lets talk real existential shit.
What is your reason for living?

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.1
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.1
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.0
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?1
To be Muersault from "The Stranger"0
Today? Today it happens to be sex. Tomorrow it might be feeding abandoned stray kittens, finishing the book I'm writing, going camping again or eating one more bag of Fritos. Who knows? I don't have a very long attention span.0
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 !0
Because my mom popped me out her vagina and had no idea what to do next. 24 years later, here I still am.0
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.
to be happy, and helps my father managing the household and family after my mum passed away, bcoz my mum done everything before this.0
nothing better to do. ;)0
Don't got 1, just a walking dead person at this point0
Don't have one. Don't really feel like my life has a purpose or meaning.0
To become a living God0
I don't have a reason0
I was born. I haven't died yet.
That's pretty much it.0
Don't know how to stop living successfully.0
I want to make the most out of my life. I don't know0
Not sure i have one, im just existing.0

I want to know what's going to happen.
My life is like one of those drama movies except I experience all the stress and its real but there are some really exciting stuff that happen once in a while.2
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.0
The silly hopefulness that my crush likes me.
Also the silly hopefulness that I'll eventually find a wife and have kids.0
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.1
Because as far as I know, life is the only reality I am capable of tolerating. What if death is even worse?0
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😄0
To make a difference to the world.
Im gonna get a PhD, then after that move up in a company. Gonna run for an MP at the same time.0
Survival. I live to not be dead. Woo0
I was born, therefore, I'm here.
I don't need a special purpose.0
To love and serve God. (I'm Christian)0
To eat pizza and poop.0
I think I want to become a god.0
You never know what the next day will bring. And the next day, and the next day...1
I was born, and I havnt been murdered yet so...0
Oh living it's great fun if you can do it right0
it varies but not between much0
Save lives and motivate others to be the best version of themselves.0
I really don't know yet. I don't really have a reason and have been contemplating suicide for a few years but I think I'm getting better0
