Default Feel Like Life is Pointless

All the suffering I went through, and now I'm finally healing through journaling, meditation, and contemplation.

But for what purpose? If I had never gone through all of that in the first place, I wouldn't need to heal.

What's the purpose of life? To heal? What's the point of that? Again, if we didn't suffer, we wouldn't need to heal! We would just be happy and relaxed to begin with.

What are your thoughts please??

I saw the 1974 film The Point. Ain't got to be a point to be a point.

Hi SensualGirl,

don't forget that there are also a lot of individuals on this planet who are just happy, satisfied and free from suffering. We who are suffering are a minority.
I quesion my purpose of existense very often, no explaination found.

Ain't got to be a point to be a point. Maybe that is exactly the point because there is none? All good comes from grace, is this true? If so then I am not good but bad because I don't deserve grace.

I think you know what I mean. Don't get too broody about it

Hi End, long time.

I think everyone suffers.

Hi,

maybe you are right, depending what kind of suffering. For some it shows no effects and they can get on with their lifes. Yes, some can be happy despite suffering. I don't know how they do it.

They find ways to cope. I distract myself.

I can't distract myself as I can't focus on anything anymore. How do you distract yourself?

Hey SensualGirl:

I had a thought. When some people including myself are at an upswing or doing better, it can feel uncomfortable and different because we are so used to depression (or insert whatever mental health issue here) and what that feels like. Feeling better feels foreign and can bring about a whole other host of different types of ruminations.

This is my experience sometimes so not sure if this resonates with you. On the other hand I am glad you are doing better in terms of what you are doing (journaling, meditation, etc).

I recently did a sage cleanse (I believe in energy and all that stuff) and it seemed to help. It was weird and it was not placebo because I would be the first to tell someone it did not work. Many things do not work for me.

What do you think of what I wrote?

I'm so sorry End Days!! I'm just now finding your posts!!

I distract myself with things that interest me like reading, writing, and YouTube. Maybe politics will hold your interest.

I think the source of most suffering is a wandering mind.

You could also try to change your thoughts.

I'm glad the sage cleanse worked, sounds intriguing.

You may be right that you're more comfy being depressed. I know I was so used to being angry at everyone that inner peace was fleeting and hard to get used to. With time and effort, things changed.

no...i do not think life is pointless at all...it becomes pointless if deep down within us we make it pointless..life is a rollercoaster ride for all of us...i believe in the saying==we can never experience true happiness if we never went through unhappy moments or feelings in life...O.K..the key point in life are dilemma's...
who am i?what should i do?I know lots of friends who have a problem with that issue..
I call it an identity crisis sometimes..i have been there..a crisis needs a solution..
I walked that road..tbh..it's a difficult issue to say=you're a loner and at the other hand you wanna go out in the world and socialize?is it boredom?or just realizing isolation or reclusion is not the ultimate answer?i tell you what i honestly think==too much socialising is not good for a loner..and i will stay a LONER..and too much of being a loner leads or can lead?to questioning who we are?and finding coping mechanisms?it's a personal decision..I choose the cameleon way..i know when and how to socialise..but basically i am an 90% loner..and nobody can convince me to think otherwise..I feel O.K the way i am..any thoughts on that,peeps?i often talk to my gf and we experienced a lot of good moments and sometimes less good moments,that makes us going into a deeper sense of a relationship...and we both see it good and say==if we always should agree with eachother life would be boring...i believe a good argument and a sincere discussion is worthwhile if people don't keep on crossing daggers...
one must learn to say sorry...i was wrong and you were right...
