Every once in a while, we all experience something that really makes us wonder what our purpose in life is. It could be anything, from simply walking down the street or having a major life crisis, and it could happen at any moment.
Just now, it happened to me when I came home and opened up a bar of chocolate. On the inside of the wrapper, I read that there are less than 8,000 species of tigers left in the world. That’s not a lot of tigers, and I find it very sad.
The majority of people doesn’t really have time to stop and think about what's going on in our world and wonder how it will affect them. We don't have time to stop and think about how screwed up the world we live in is and try to figure out how we can make a difference. We don't want to think about it most of the time, because we feel there’s not much we can do.
For the past year of my life, I’ve been trying to figure out what I could do to help others for a living. I want to help people, but now I don’t know if I even want to bring children into this world anymore. What kind of world are we going to be living in another 100 years from now? A world with barely any water fit to drink, that’s over-polluted, over-populated, with no trees or animals, except the ones that can be fattened up and then slaughtered to eat. And I know that this is a horrible thing to say, and someone might want to kick me off Curezone for saying it, but wouldn’t it be best to just let the population that doesn’t contribute any good into the world to just die of the diseases we’ve created? I question if it’s even worth trying to save my own species anymore.
I live in the states, and I don’t mean the poor starving children in third-world countries because they’re not the ones causing all the harm in the world, but people like me who drive cars and pollute the air, and produce wastes that sit in landfills, and contribute to this world that is full of CRAP from all the factories and plants. Maybe it’s best that we die of heart-attacks and lung cancer, or whatever, so that eventually there will only be the ones left who care about themselves and care about the enviroment and can try to restore this world to what it used to be.
I had a dream the other night, and I was in a huge gorge with waterfalls, a river, huge rocks, and beautiful trees and plants. Suddenly, the ground started to sink, and the ground beneath me was falling into the earth. I had to climb up higher and higher to save myself from sinking into the earth and when I reached the highest point, I watched as everything around me started to disappear. Suddenly, huge dinosaurs started crawling out of the earth and started making their way through the land. As I watched this, I knew it was my time to go, and the huge rocks beneath me began to crumble and I was happy knowing that the world was going to be restored to the beautiful planet that it has been for the past millions of years, even if it meant me not being in it.
I guess what I’m wondering is, and I want to know, what is it to you that makes life so worth it? What is your philosophy on life, because I’m just finding it so hard to live in this world I’m living in. Can you tell me what you have found to be the reason to start a family and bring it into this world? I know a lot of you will tell me to stop complaining and if I hate it so much why don’t I just go move into the mountains. But I’m not asking what I should do with my life, but I just want to know what reasons that you all have for living that makes it worth it?
I’m not a writer or a scholar, I never was a “leader”, or someone that wants the whole world to agree with me, nor am I trying to get attention. I’m simply asking what makes life worth living to you. I care a lot about people and about myself, and have spent a lot of time here on Curezone to learn and talk to others who are doing the same. I want to spread the knowledge I’ve learned here on Curezone to everyone I know or who is willing to listen. I just wonder how many of us think about what is really going on in this world and how long it’s going to take before we stop wondering and start doing.
