What is your perspective on life?
Posted 1/2/17
Generally speaking you all could die and I would not care.

I hate humans Also I hate the fact we all share the same air.

Life is fleeting, and has no inherent purpose. I believe it up to the individual to give purpose to their own life. However, it would seem that modern society is adamant in repressing individuality. Although I have found that it's getting easier to "be yourself," but it's ripe with challenges nonetheless. It's hard to not view the world through a cynical and/or nihilistic lens these days, in my opinion.

Worst case scenario, I import gel capsules from China, fill them up with flour and crushed ginger, and sell them as "male vitality" or "deep cleanse" pills on the internet.

How do you perceive life? Do you enjoy life? Do you hate life?

As I see it, life is more of a strange thing or experience.. There is more pain and despair than there is good things so it seems. Do I hate life? For most part without any doubt yes. Life in this reality is such a bothersome thing. I live purely for one reason and once that crumbles I'm giving up and walking out.

Everyone has different experiences in life that spark changes in themselves that may be for the best or for the worst. In my experience its more for the worst. I've had my share of dealing with people and hardships of such. I'm certain for typing this response someone is going to mention my age to get the point across of "You're not old enough to experience enough of life" while this may be true to some degree I don't believe it really suits this. Moving forward, I'll rant a tiny bit about a few things I hate about life in this reality.

I find humans of this reality disgusting. Due to experiences with people I'm very unlikely to bother with trust in a person ever again. Everything seems so forced by what
ever society says.

To avoid ranting for too long I'll just describe these three things.

Personally, I find humans in this reality very disgusting. I find a lot of things in this reality be disgusting. However, that is just how it is and I can't exactly change that.

I've had many experiences with people in which my trust has been lost entirely. People spreading information that I trusted them with around, people using me for whatever intent, people trying to break me down, or just simply doing it out of amusement. By having these experiences I've become very distrusting of others when it comes to certain information. While this has improved there still is very little trust in people.

Society forcing things is a bizarre thing to me. It just seems odd to force ideals onto others or force others to bind to your will.

Anyhow ranting aside.

I perceive life as a strange thing or experience. I'm only here living for one reason. Once that reason crumbles I'm gone. I don't like much in this reality. I hate a lot of things about this reality. However, in the end I can't really change it to what I want so I live for what I live for until that fades away and I vanish with it.

I hope this made sense.


You're getting trapped in that silly metaphysical non-sense. There is ONLY this reality. Everything else is not reality. If you're having trouble with this, I suggest you review the idea of relativity.

Life can be unfair but you have to keep at it. That's the only way things will change honestly. It sucks sometimes but it's life, so yeah you can sulk or be angry but when you're done just continue. In addition, don't believe things have to be accomplished or obtain at certain life points. Everyone's different, people are ready when they're ready and some people don't want the "normal basic life style." it's your life and you shouldn't go by someone else's view on it. As long as you're not causing harm to anyone, live the way you want to live.

Since this is an anime streaming site, I'd say go watch everything Monogatari - Nisemonogatari in particular. That touches a little on my perspective on life. (The sexual chargedness isn't primarily what I was referring to.)

But everyone has a perspective on life. What about your perspectives on death? That's a more interesting question. I can't think of an anime I'd point to for this one, but I can say that I like the idea of the memento mori.

A few months ago, I fully intended to kill myself due to existential depression(I felt my life was meaningless). After not being able to go through with it, I was hit with an even worse depression. I felt completely alone, no purpose, no reason to be here. It wasn't until I realized that while I had no reason to live, that wasn't enough of a reason to die. I started to look back to my happiest moments in life, whenever I was able to make people laugh. I'm not a comedian or anything and most of my jokes fall flat unless I'm being outrageous, but those few times in which I could see someone's laugh filled me with an even greater happiness and was what made me realize that I want to make people happy. Not sure whether or not that is an obtainable life goal or not, but at the very least I think that there's some part of me that has a reason to keep striving. I'm rambling right now and I don't know if I answered your question but hopefully I helped.

I think a life without constant goals is meaningless. I feel like if you are not working towards something, then you will lose a sense of purpose which will potentially lead to depression or worse. Even after you achieve your set goal, you should not be satisfied and fall into the trap of perpetual monotony. I have always been a strong advocate when it comes to constant self betterment. My perspective stems from a childhood of low self-esteem and over the years I have become progressively more assertive. I still cannot say I am 100% proud of myself yet and I don't think I ever will be, but when I compare who I used to be with who I am now it feels pretty awesome. Bettering oneself should not just be about "you" but also those that raised you. Your parent(s) have made great sacrifices to raise you and the least you can do to repay them is by becoming someone they can be truly proud of.
