What is the point in life?
    #3614723 - 01/11/05 10:47 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I know this has been here a thousand times, but I guess I just feel like giving it a fresh spin. I hate when I feel this way, and it's quite often for me.
But what is teh point? Are we supposed to primp and prime and make others think we are like perfect?
Are we supposed to get f'd up alot and just try not to think about it?
Alot of days, I just feel like such a waste of space and all I wanna do is get f'd up and just get this time on earth over with, cuz it pretty much sucks.
But, everyday we find new ways of sugar coating things so we can feel "happy", we direct our anger at others, that makes us feel better.
WTF, I'm confused.
Maybe if I just read some feed back here, it'll take me away from my "waste" mood.
TY in advance for any input

:peace:

Well, my girlfriend just made a very good point,
Quote:

The point is to love and to be loved




maybe that is enough. It is a very good answer.
But, I don't like people in general too much. There won't be many at my funeral  :crazy:
In light of this latter statement, alot of times I just wanna go out with a smile on my face, like Jerry did...

sometimes i think there is no "point" to it....i mean, does there really have to be a point to everything? just live man. have fun. love, and get loved. party, do drugs, go to church, have kids, go hiking, enjoy the sunset, lock yourself in a dark quiet room ans see how loud silence can be.... the only point to life i have come across in my 23 years of living, is to just live man. live the best way you know how. peace

ha, you just described my life in a couple of short sentences.
After 36 yrs., it gets old.
I've been a couple of different proffesions, very diverse, but somehow, still unsatisfied.
Sometimes I just can't wait till it's over.
Something tells me I'll be around for a few more days tho...
I guess I am just curious how many others view life this way

Me, Me!  I view life that way, and I also view growing older negatively.  No idea what to tell you, but I can tell you what usually brings me out of this slump, and that's people. 

In the end, or close to it, what are you going to remember most?  That career you worked so hard for? Nope. those material possessions you busted your ass for? Don't think so.  One thing comes to mind when I reflect on life:  People.  Relationships.

Friends, family, and lovers from the past, and present.  All the people that I shared good times with that put a smile on my face.  And all the people I look forward to meeting in the future and creating new experiences with.  Keep in mind I'm not a social butterfly nor do I like especially like meeting people - but these are the only things that seem to matter to me anymore.

That is all I've learned about life in 24 years, I hope it helps you to relate with things a little better.  :smile:

im sure everyone at some point in time questions their reasons for being here. i know i have. ive dwelled on it to the point of mass confusion. ive ran around in circles inside my head for so long i got so dizzy i didnt know which way was up. ive finally got to the point of...

fuck it....im here, who cares why? why not make the best of it? it seems to be working for me so far, even though i still get bits of depression that send me back into the circular thought paterns.

Your life is influenced by people and things around you.
You make your life what it is.
What your life is influences the people around you.


So I guess the "point" of life is to keep that all going, and influence others in a positive way!

The point in life is that no one knows for sure. Keeps it interesting.

Thank you all. Very good answers, and very good encouragement.
I'm grateful, it is now morning and I feel better.
I've been laid off, and I'm not doing much. I guess I't's a mix of boredom and me wondering what my life's accomplishments add up to, I don't have children, so, sometimes it's like = 0.
But then, you wake up in the morning with your soulmate beside you, and it makes sense :grin:
So, here (we) go again, knowing that what I do today will shape my tomorrow...
Much love people...

:peace:

Sinbad, I am IMPRESSED :smile:
I LOVE your avatar, as I have this tattoo on my back.
I am wondering now why I never thought of that, but if you decide to ditch it, can I get it? I absolutley love it, 5 for you my brother...
O yeah, back o/t: Yes, we all know this don't we, life is what you make it.
I was feeling pretty cooped up,  and I ponder my path and my value to existence often. For the most part, I try to do my part evryday.
And then there are times when the title of the thread says it all.
Thank you everyone :smile:

:peace:

The point in life is to live it in a way that you enjoy it and when you die you feel like you've done something good or purposeful with it and not wasted it. It is to be happy while alive, and to prepare yourself for death so it is a happy time as well

I find that that sense of doing good and meaningfullness comes from helping others instead of serving myself.

I don't think there is a point in life.

That's it really. Just pontificate... all we are is dustin the wind to a society that governs our lifestyle and tells us what the point in life is "church, help others, get rich, be happy, et cetera". I think it's pointless to think about a true meaning of life. It just doesn't exist, but if you feel like you need a point, then create your own meaning in life.
