You ever stop and think about how useless life really is?

post #1 of 120
Thread Starter 

What's the point? No one escapes death. Kobe dies. Priests die. Heroes who save people from death, both the heroes and the saved die. 

 

So what do we do? Enjoy the things that make us happy? Do we really do that? If that was the case, then why not all of us just take walks on long beaches and listen to good music? 

 

All the money, all the accomplishment, all the good/bad, nothing matters. In the end, it's all gone. It's like trying to paint a beautiful landscape with chalk as it starts to rain. What are you trying to do? You really think that all the happiness you get from making a "masterpiece" will bring you to death safe in mind?

 

Every single thing is meaningless. The music we listen to, the people we're with, the conversations we have, it all disappears when we leave. People always talk about how they want to live a meaningful life. Those people will die, it's like trying to enjoy your last thoughts before you're executed. No one is executing me and I promise whoever leaving that no one alive will escape what they have. Scream if you're the last person on Earth and the ground is shaking on your feet. Think about your ******g family or whatever and what made you happy.

 

Now revel in the fact that it'll be gone very soon forever. **** being good, **** being bad, having fun, being angry, at the end of the day, we all finish in the same manner.

My life is similar to a squirrels. All I do is chase nuts. So I'm too occupied to think that way.

It's that kind of attitude that'll lead you to never learning Kaio-ken from King Kai...shhhhhhh...with that attitude, you'd never survive the Snake Road.

 

That's fine, more Bubbles-chasing-time for the rest of us!!!

 

To die would be a grand adventure!

Why not leave this world and our civilization with something good then? 

 

I feel one of the main purpose of the human race is too keep it moving forward for as long as we can, and those who don't are only a waste of space.

Hey, might as well make the best of it...

 

 

you seem depressed though, everything alright? experience the joys of life instead of dwelling on the inevitable...think about where we would be as people if everyone thought that way

To me the point is to leave something lasting behind for the next generation. Something that will get recorded in history to say "I was here". Of course all that may be wiped out someday but you just have to hope that what you did was worthwhile enough to be acknowledged in some way or form. I don't think anyone wants to die being forgotten.

Some people feel like having kids accomplishes this, some people work with others to make their current or future lives better, some people do it through their jobs, some people do it through setting records, I know people who feel like having their name on a tombstone accomplishes this. Hell, maybe you want what you post on NT to be your legacy.

Personally, mine is two fold. First, I want to have my hand directly in something creative that I'm truly proud of. Something that people will enjoy and something that I know I poured my heart and soul into and was able to give that piece of art to the world to hopefully be preserved somewhere. Second, I want my kids to have the upbringing that I never had to set them up for success. A mother and father who are supportive, unselfish, trustworthy, stable, accepting, and who love them unconditionally. If I can do those two things I can die happy. I'll be on my grind until that happens.

i don't get how people say this but don't kill themselves.

i'm not saying kill yourself, but if you truly felt like it was useless

you'd kill yourself. the fact that you're still here proves that you either

enjoy it to some extent or still find some meaning in it.

me personally, i don't care. i like many things about life sooooo i'm just

gonna keep on living and ya know...being happy. stay up OP

Personally, there are only two things that matter to me in this life: the quality of time you spend with loved ones, and how you are remembered after you've passed.

Everything I do, I do to make sure those two things are maximized.

While the finished product might not last, if you have a good time drawing the picture with the chalk then that's all that matters. Better yet, you can help someone else enjoy drawing their own picture and that's meaningful.

 

Realizing your own life is pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things will give you a better awareness of those around you so it's not necessarily a bad thing. Your life has an expiration date, but the impact you have on others can span across their own and even across generations.

post #18 of 120

I dont know about that, but my life is pretty awesome.......NOW.

Use to be hell, succed, and all that negative ****.

Get involved in something you enjoy...Build yourself from there.

Everyday is an learning experience.

This is what those No Fap contests leads to. Dudes turn borderline suicidal.

I petition that we start banning No Fap threads for the overall welfare of the community.

I use to think about life as being meaningless and pointless.

But then I decided **** it i'm gonna just figure out what I want to do and make it my goal in life to do that.

Doesn't matter what it is. Whatever that picture in your head is of you being the coolest mother ****** of all time, do that.

**** everybody. Everybody can suck my **** at this point in my life because nobody really believes in your dreams like you do.

I had to have a mental breakdown and my family commit me to a damn psych ward to come to the conclusion of **** Everybody I Gotta Chase My Dreams because I was going crazy trying to please people and fight the guilt that people put on you when your stuck thinking about the two most meaningless questions ever: "what's the point" and "am i a good person".

Nope, not even that will be the case. Eventually the sun will fry the earth or burn out freeze everything, then an asteroid or whatever will obliterate this planet. Google, iPhones, the 1972 Miami Dolphins, American Gladiators,etc... will no longer exist in any aspect.

That doesn't necessarily have to be depressing though.

I see what you mean now, I guess it can extend till the end of humanity at least.
