Re: What's the point of living?

There isn't one.

But since you're here, might as well make the best of it. It'll be over before long anyway - we're a brief insignificant blip on one planet in a vast, turbulent universe, shining brightly and then winking out. You're a long time dead, so live well, have fun, be nice to people.

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

That's my view as a non-religious person - I don't see myself as part of the master plan of some invisible sky spirit, I don't think I have a grand destiny to fulfil either, so...in the larger sense, there is no point to my existence, except what I am able to make of it.

^^50k posts Btw, if there's no point, then you can't really make anything of it, can you?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

You can make the best of your time here - be a good friend, partner, lover, son/daughter, parent, workmate - make the best you can of the hand you were dealt and enhance the lives of those around you with your presence - that's about all any of us can do. We're all here, I don't advocate mass suicide in the face of the pointlessness of existence, so we might as well try and be good to each other and leave the metaphysical questions to whatever higher beings there might be out there.

Re: What's the point of living?

Yup, in that case one could ask why should we be good then, when we are all going to die very soon - doesn't matter anyway, but perhaps there's no point asking such things

Re: What's the point of living?

I on the other hand honestly believe that there is a purpose to your existence (and mine): To appreciate the company of other people as well as form a relationship with God.

We're all going to die soon, but we can choose how to spend that time alive - making ourselves and everyone else miserable, or enhancing the lives of others. Personally I'm happier being happy and making other people happy if I can...

I wonder what it is myself, especially knowing how the world is such a horrible place.
