I just woke up and it's a bit difficult to organize my thoughts, so please bear with me. For perspective, I am a 21 year old male, in the USA. I just can not understand how so many people are contempt with life. What is the point exactly? Being happy is a good reason to be alive, but how can one draw happiness from the world we are living in today? Do people really get joy from waking up, working all day, and then coming home and staring at the idiot box(tv) until it's time to go to bed so you can get up and do the exact same shit as the day before?! We are working ourselves to death for what? To be rich, to have big houses and shiny expensive cars, to make us feel like we are more important/successful/better than others? Not my cup of tea. I can understand why some people work as hard and as much as they do, they may have children to feed, or they could also be working towards a future goal. My problem is that I don't have any dreams or goals, I feel not a need to be rich or famous, and I also don't feel an obligation to accomplish something so that I am deemed successful through the eyes of others. Anyways, this post makes no sense and is worthless, kinda like life. Someone once said, "Life's a shit sandwich, and every day you take a bite." I am about to just toss that sandwich in the trash. If you read this far, sorry for wasting a few minutes of your time.
