Is life worth living?
Yes.

What's your preferred lifestyle?
To have a fulfilling life.To me that means to seek knowledge, look up instead of down, find enjoyment in the trivial and share my joys with less than a handful. Although mundane and quiet to most--it is what I want.

Have you encountered many hardships and made it through?
No, only the demons in my head. My life is rich and spoiled. I suffered from no hand other than my own--to the point where it ate at my physical body. I was unwillingly (and contrarily...willingly) isolated. At the time, I did not consider myself depressed. I had nothing to be depressed over--rationally, I couldn't be. Despite reasoning I had near reached that point, I suppose, where if I drowned any further there was simply no coming back. One day I had an epiphany. For one reason or another I changed almost instantaneously. My personality took a 180 and I started to recover--body and mind. I became a much stronger person in the process, entirely different in many ways as well.

I had no idea how bad I truly was until I was better again. There is no better way of putting it, the way I had been was fucked up.

Presently I can still "snap" for short duration, but it is rare and not worrisome. Apathetic--not violent.



I do not regret the lessons learned. I like who I am today and so I am thankful of my hardships. I would have my life no differently. My former--pitiful--self had needed a teacher. I was dealt a much better hand than most in life, but I sucked at cards--strangely.

If there's people who go through horrible stuff and emerge from it stronger than ever, does that mean there's also people who don't make it?
Some people choose to drown instead of swim.

Do those people not deserve to live?
It's not a matter of deserve. They're not alive and they will treat themselves similarly.

In all honesty, I don't see any point to my life. Right now I'm not exactly being a productive member of society.

yeah, i probably am not one who should talk about this shit.
for a long time, anime has been the thing that makes life okay.

Doesn't matter, biologically it is to pass on our genetics, we are just programmed to do that, even our brains and self awareness exist for that sole purpose. So if meaning is just to pass on cells, but that in itself is meaningless, we are passing on meaningless lives to the next generation. Thus I believe meaning is preventing that next generation from existing, however you don't really need to bother with that when your dead, enjoy life if you feel like it, throw a cog in the gears of eternity if you feel like it, I don't really care.

Life is what you make of it. Nothing more, nothing less.


What's your preferred lifestyle?

These days, I go to work, come home spend time with my family.

Have you encountered many hardships and made it through?

Way too many. I've been poor, I've watched people die truly horrible deaths, I've been bad places and done bad things.
I've had just as many good experiences.

If there's people who go through horrible stuff and emerge from it stronger than ever, does that mean there's also people who don't make it?
It does not work like that. The ability or inability to cope with hardship has nothing to do with your worth as a person. We all do the best we can.

Do those people not deserve to live?

Consider this: how much better would their lives be if someone like you were there to support them and help them through the hard times. Sometimes, by helping others, we too can find our way through the hard times.

Of course life is worth living! The only people who say no are simply lost in their own sea of darkness that they must pull themselves out of. The darker your world, the more susceptible you are to become that world. Only a life of clarity and guidance can save you, find a reason to cry, experience your true nature, open up to yourself and find the answer you're looking for.

I prefer to live a life of understanding, I prefer to see how the world functions, how the weather changes each day, each season, how the birds begin to sing in the spring and summer, how leaves begin to change on the trees in fall, and how the world freezes over in winter as we all huddle together for warmth and comfort. I'm a simple man with an extraordinary dream, and I gain my knowledge from whatever source my mind is focused on.

Have I struggled through hardships? Yes. Have I overcame them? You're damn right I did! Instead of being curled up in a corner I pushed on, I survived, through physical pain, internal pain, and mental pain. If you let pain effect you, you will never become strong. I focused on my priorities and I pushed. No matter how terrible it was I never gave up. Yes there were times I just laid in bed and covered myself in blankets and just laid in darkness, but in the end it solves nothing. I found out how caring people can be, what they can do for you when you are in times of struggle and despair, and that drove me to continue my dream because of their kindness. In those moments I couldn't understand why... why are some people so kind? This question has driven me to achieve my dreams. All the mistakes I have made, all the tears I have shed, and yet those people will still find it in their heart to help me. So I live to save others, because you never know what kindness someone can show you, no matter how much you feel like giving up, know that there is always someone that cares for you.

The people who don't make it. They don't deserve to die, they deserve a chance to prove themselves. If they continue to be consumed by this regret and sorrow, they will never become strong. Empty your mind of regret and sorrow, and focus on what you can do now. Weakness is never absolute until one cannot physically move or speak. Stop thinking that the world owes you something! Start owing the world something, create something no matter how big or small that will reach out to people, become a hero. The world needs heros, and a hero is not defined by his strength or power, but of will. If you can get up again and again, that means you are fighting! You are fighting the possibility of a chance, no matter how hopeless it seems, how dark or dim the situation, we embrace it with optimism. We embrace the darkness in our life so we can shine light on it, no matter how impossible it seems, we always get back up for the final scene.

To me only reason i want to stay alive is for the future. I love anime more than anything else, anime is my life i live for it and the possibility of becoming immortal by transferring our self conscious into a computer and living inside any anime world is more than enough reason for me to stay a live.
