Hurrah to those who made the extra effort when it mattered, and Shame to those who live in alienation, non-existence and nothingness

We will come across many times in life where we question ourselves on the very reason for our presence in this world. What am I? What is to become of me? What do I do? These are questions that each and every individual, at a certain time of their life, will ask.

The basis for existence is this, “I think therefore I am.”

The next step is of course to take action for, “Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways, the point is, however, to change it.”

Of course contrary to what many people may think, life is not orderly, and can never be orderly. Things have happened, will wait to happen, and of course continue to happen. Life is absurd. It does not need to have meaning. It will never have meaning. For those of us who believe otherwise, it is not impossible. It can have meaning if you give meaning to it. What matters most is that you’re here. Existence precedes essence. So what do you do? Whatever you want. Anything you want. As long as you know that you exist, and that because of this your life is meaningful. And you give meaning to it. For those who know meaning, who endeavoured for meaning, and made the push when it mattered most, you exist.

Pity to those who live a life of freedom but who chose not to exist. You have no use, no existence and live a life of nothingness, an irrelevant life. The only reason you’re here is that because you’re condemned to live in this world full of absurdity and madness. Pity because you’re free, able to give meaning, but because you choose not to, you scorn upon this world for its absurdity, madness and hostility. Do you not know that it is only of your own doing? Shame on you.

“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.”
