A Life of Nihilism: Breaking Out

We’ve all been there. That nagging feeling, constantly reminding you that your life is completely meaningless when compared to all of humanity. You are merely one in 7 billion, being swept away with the crowd, unable to do anything about it.

But is this really true?

Is life really as useless and futile as it appears to be? At first glance, perhaps it does look that way.

Despite this perpetual feeling of loneliness and helplessness, which constantly threatens to overtake our thought lives, we may truly be able to find life’s purpose if we dig deep enough.

Let me ask this. What’s stopping you from achieving your goals and rising above the rest?

Perhaps you feel that your dreams have been crushed, trampled beneath the cruel feet of reality. Your childhood dreams now seem further out of reach than ever before.

There’s an old cliche — we’ve all heard it before. You know the one…

“Nothing is impossible if you believe.”

That’s what they always say.

It is horribly overused, and personally, I find the saying to be far too flowery and fanciful for my tastes, but there may be some validity to it after all. If you work hard enough, and desire to achieve something enough, you will not allow anything to get in your way.

You WILL do it, even if the world seems to be against you.

Sure, you’re going to die eventually. This is an irrefutable fact, which many of us refuse to acknowledge, but you can ensure that your memory will not soon be forgotten.

Everything you do drastically affects your environment, as well as the others living in it. No matter how insignificant you may think you are, this is simply not true.

Do not allow others to tear you down, and prevent you from ‘reaching for the stars.’ Realize that you simply cannot settle for anything less.

I don’t care what your religious beliefs are, or if you believe there is only nothingness waiting for you in the next existence (or non-existence). Why not make the best of it? Work to better the lives of others. Leave the world better than how you found it. The future generations, and those you interact with will thank you.

Our lives would be very different without you.

Do not forget that.
