Are you just existing? How does that work for people?

When that happens, you just become an observer. Wake up, piss on internet, piss off internet, go to sleep.

Honestly I don't think there is anything more rewarding then those little things that make us happy. The rest can be special but there is nothing like finding happiness in drink a cup of coffee and sharing your life with someone you care about.

id have to agree since idk how else things could be any better. sometimes i question it though. some ppl are like whats your purpose in life? whats your goal? and it makes me feel like im supposed to have one or else my life is meaningless. i guess thats why people seek out religion and whatnot.
i dont really understand why so many people think theres supposed to be a reason to be. we just are, and its not a terrible thing.

I think people often think purpose should be derived in the wrong direction. I don't have an overarching purpose that I fill in with little things. Rather, my drive is for the little things, doing and experiencing as many of them and as much of them as I can, and I derive any big-picture purpose as a means to that end. Human beings are far too complex and dynamic to assign a singular purpose to.

And you're right, it's not terrible. It's quite wonderful.

All last year I was just existing - basically keeping myself alive. Now I'm back to the regular me who cares mostly about human interactions and personal serenity.

That sounded a little more insufferable than I meant it. I guess I'm just happy, and I'm happy that I'm happy. :)

Yeah, I'm just existing and have been for about five years. Nothing makes me happy, nothing makes me sad. I don't have a purpose in the world. Feels like I'm just waiting for death. Cheery, huh?

I was there on and off for my early twenties. I think we go through cycles as we learn more about ourselves.

By going to work and coming home every day with no end in sight.

I just exist. None of your business :p You know how when you zone out and you realise that it's been quite a while? No? Yeah, you can pass years and it is sad but you get used to it. It's easy to have no friends for years too. It's only hard to imagine if you're a really sociable person and I'll never relate to that. I'm a cunt but I can't deal with people anymore.

I can relate to that cycle too. I pretty much did that while living with my ex for seven years. :(

No way. I have a jam-packed full life with friends, family, romance, adventure, intrigue, bla bla bla. It's true.

I definitely think that it's natural to go through a period of time where you HAVE NO CLUE and are just alive until something happens, if it happens. That was how it was for me, till I realized that I was enough. That's pretty simply how it went. Then my life took off. I do things to make me happy, and in turn I am more interested in doing things that make me happy.

It's going swimmingly.
