Life has more meaning…and more pain.
There is only one shot. I cannot look forward to anything after this.
Whatever my life if going to mean, I have to do it here and now.
I will not see my daughter after I die, I will be just as non-existent as she is. Those who have died before me have only my memories and the memories of those whom they have touched. I must carry on without them even as I hold on to those memories.
Pain and suffering is not admirable and has no spiritual purpose, it only detestable and should be fought against. I cannot comfort myself with the “knowledge” that everything has a purpose from some wise director.
I am the only one who has the power to bring meaning to my life. This is an awesome power, and a great responsibility. And more than a little frightening.
