Since around age 18 I’ve been on a ‘quest’ to figure out life.
What is the point?
Why are we here?
Where are we going?
Where did we come from?
I’ve looked all over the place for these answers. Studied many religions. Spent hours upon hours reading philosophy. Spent even more hours questioning, contemplating, and obsessing over finding answers. This has drove me to have severe anxiety at times, thousands of panic attacks, bouts with depression, and basically stolen many many hours of my life.
Well I’m done with it. I can’t handle it. It induces too much anxiety and always ends in an endless loop of questions. Probably shouldn’t be putting this in a fitness/personal development blog but I don’t really care.
I’m declaring it to myself.
There are no answers, only perceptions.
We weren’t meant to have answers.
The human brain short circuits anytime proposed answers are deeply contemplated anyways. The ONLY answer that I can confidently say after all these years is this: life is meant to be lived. This is meant to be an experience. Stop looking for deeper answers. Enjoy right now and do what it takes to make the most out of this life. Create experiences. Capture experiences. Love. It’s that simple.
No more philosophy for me. This post will likely only relate to people philosophical minded (maybe .01% of people).
That’s fine. Love you all.
