    Interpret this question whatever way you like. I just want some answers from you. Please?:

    "What is the point?"

    In relation to you, to me, to anyone. Doesn't matter.
    I guess I just want to know that there is some point to something. Either that, or I'm not the only one who thinks there isn't any.

    I don't think there is any profound answer to the meaning of life. I think we live, we die, and then we are eventually forgotten. I suppose the meaning is to be happy with the time you have on this earth. Or to do something great that you will be remembered for generations to come, contribute to the human race in some way. For some, who have faith, I guess they believe that one day after their life on this earth, they will have eternal happiness in the afterlife.

    Unfortunately not everybody is happy and not everyone believes in life after death. I'm not happy and don't really think I ever will be and I don't have the motivation or the intelligence to make a great contribution to society, so for me, I see no point. I guess a lot of people feel the same way.

    I totally agree. I mean everyone has different views and things that are important to them....so it's not easy to say...since I am not you... but in general probably..........family, friends, hobbies and ect....It's hard to see things with all of the mental illness, but life is worth living....you just have to get in recovery...then you'll see what really makes you happy again.

    It's a hard battle but well worth it....I use to think I was worthless, had no one, nothing, was a waste of space, and thought there was no meaning of anything, and I should die.......and I was in therapy for years before I found the right combonation of therapy, meds and treatment. I got a glimpse of what I wanted, what I was going to do and the things that were important to me, but when you get in such a deep depression, just locks it away...where you can't see it, but life is worth living....I am really down again, buty I will get better and then I will help others get better.

    Sorry for blabbing on and on...I hope I have helped a little.....if you need a friend...I am here. :hug:

    You take care hun! :hug:

    Maybe 'the point' is to try and use our lives, and our own experiences of suffering, happiness etc to try and increase our ability to feel compassion and affectionate love for other people - for all living beings in fact. And to use that compassionate heart to try and benefit others in whatever way we are able.

    So many people seem obssessed with 'being loved', and are lonely. So maybe it would be better to be more concerned with our own capacity to be able to love more, and in better ways. And I think that that includes learning to have compassion and love for ourselves.

    So yeah, I suppose that's 'my point'!.:biggrin:

    Great point!!! so many reasons and points of view...but really it depends on the person, but they are really all true in some shape or form....:blink: hmm, maybe I am making no sense.

    i believe the point is for us to become conciously aware so a collective form of understanding can grow to a level where the burdons we carry are more related to things that will build us all as a whole up instead of a tearin down. i believe the specific point of any truth is irrelevent for the time being for even if we where to be starin right at it we would ,miss it. it would sit before us undefined do to our concious state.. my question is if there where a pendilum side of suicide what would it be?

    Honey, I do not think that was a stupid question. Many people ask the meaning of life. Some get answers and some never do.
    For myself I believe in premortal existence and afterlife. The Lord sent us to Earth so that we could find joy in interacting with and serving one another. I believe this is a test and we are given hardships as part of this test.
    I don't believe I am doing so well. I am tired and I am ready to move on to the next life. I have tried to take my own life but my husband would be too hurt and I cannot do that. I'm stuck.
