What's the point of life?
Posted 1/23/16
"what's the point" is something depressed people say and think.

Simple, there doesn't need to be a point. Just do what you want to.

problem is a lack of motivation, and there, can't really help ya, gotta motivate yourself and have wants.

Everyone has to discover their own reasons to live.

You make life what you make it. If you make it sad, it will be sad. If you make it happy it will be happy. Do you want life to have a religious, scientific, or none of the above meaning? You choose. The point to life is living or not living. Although, of course, there are multiple variables that come into play with my previous statements, they are basically true I believe.

Life doesn't have a point, humans live to die just like any other living thing in this world. So might as well have a life worth living till that hour glass runs out

you know what i've came to realize with this question? is that telling someone "yes" doesnt justify why it is. for myself i live because im alive. aside from that i dont really have much of a reason. no one knows why they're given the life they were given. no one can justify that for you.

no matter what age you are or what youre going through i believe we are all here for a reason. sometimes we spend our entire life looking for that reason. its never too late to see things differently or to gain perspective.

Overcoming challenges to reach your goals, and in the end, hopefully dying with a smile on your face and saying "I lived." Also, I think making a mark on the world is very important, hopefully a positive one lol And the fact that we are the only species that can either create or destroy our world makes it even more of an adventure.

There are a lot of people that don't deserve bad things, people that do deserve bad things and get them, and some people who are lucky and do deserve bad things but end up being the asshole they are. There are people I hate and people I like, but that's the thing. You can't have good without bad and vice versa. You're the one who decides whether you're good or bad in the end, and some people don't have the mental strength to choose good.

Is life worth living? What's your preferred lifestyle? Have you encountered many hardships and made it through? 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? Do those people not deserve to live?




This is easy! The point of living is to find what makes you happy, find what makes it worth living. Everyone has a different "meaning of life" it's very personal.

For me the point is to make those close to me happy, do what i can to improve their life. That brings me joy. To see them smiles, to see them happy is what makes life worth living.

I also enjoy board-games, chess, go, video games and spreading critical thinking, and science as far as possible ^_^

Thanks for reading!

I agree with most of what you're saying, but I think our decisions on morality are influenced more by external factors, sometimes badly, depending on who we allow influences us. While it is true one makes choices that cause others to encourage or disapprove of your actions, however whether you are considered good or bad is decided by those around you, and that affects how we may percieve good and bad behaviour. Without input from other people and past experiences, there isn't a frame of reference to compare one's performance.

This reminds me of a plot from CDOS, where an antagonist , a cult leader, believes that good cannot exist without evil to oppose, and so she plots to revive the series antagonist, the embodiment of evil.. in her fanatical thinking, she is promoting good.

I do think there that an inner morality exists, but its something one learns, and either chooses to cultivate and must maintain, or doesn't ( or becomes watered down in shades of grey.). I think its subjective what "good" really is, because there are a lot of differemt people with different ideas as to what it is.
