"The Absurd" refers to the conflict between the human tendency to seek inherent value and meaning in life and the human inability to find any.
This is a problem that's been bugging me a lot lately. I'm atheist and don't find any purpose in the meaningless of life, which contributes to my unhappiness.

Sucks to keep on living when everything I do feels like a struggle and very little of my time gives me true happiness (almost none). :kanyeshrug:

I'm atheist and I'm getting very close to finding meaning in my life. I thought a gf and sex would help, but that's was a big NOPE. I'm finding things I'm good at and take interest in and pursuing it as a career

I'm a nihilist, it's not really fun but I go back to that same thought process of 'there is no point, it's just wasting time'.

I read somewhere 'you either live a hedonist lifestyle or kill yourself'.
I think I'm somewhat suicidal; I just don't see reason to live, and while I can find things I enjoy on a daily basis they don't give me justification for living.
I mean I'm 20 short and going bald, is there any reason and if not why continue if I'm already disadvantaged with such shit luck.

I think Albert Camus asked 'Should I kill myself or have a cup of coffee" - The answer is if Coffee gives you justification for not killing yourself, have a cup of coffee.

For a long time I thought 'ok there's no point other than how we live affecting those around us', so I want to great something that improves peoples lives, I want to start a business and get rich and I want to help people.
But as a business student I just see the shady marketing tactics, the tax avoidance.. the immorality of the whole thing but from a nihilist standpoint I probably should just say 'ok but if there's no point then why worry about it'.
But I am not going to separate philosophy and morality, and as a result I can't see the good in the world or the justification for life.

dont look for some grand purpose. Just focus on the things you love and surround yourself with loving people like family or friends.

"Beyond a few kids, existentialism is as dead as a doornail and perhaps only lives on in commercialised 'lifestyle' individualism, the post-Heideggerian blight of ontological 'identity politics' and inventing your own gender on Tumblr." [sic]
