    Peter, interesting take on Nihilism. The truth of the matter is that in about 4-5billion years, the sun will expand outward in its death throes and in incinerate the surface of the Earth.

    I understand the family thing. You really do need to get out on your own. Family can become like lampreys and attach.

    Dear @esther08,

    Would you like to – for a moment – think the silly thought of life being a game. And you are the player.

    To that game there is no finish line, no ending. And the purpose is living. You can live just the way you do and that would be fine because you decided to live the way you do.

    Whenever you feel not satisfied (like you do right now) it’s the script of the game pushing you to take new decisions and experience more. Reaching the next level. You can chose to do so by becoming more than you are. Or you can hit the snooze button by not doing what you are supposed to do – in that way you will be reminded again and again and you will have to snooze again and again.

    If you don’t know what you are suppose to do then look within. Ask yourself. Write that question on a blank page. Then write down the first thing that comes into mind and do it. It might not be something of tremendous value, it might be something silly. But by doing it you will be a step closer to discovering the next step.

    Everything I wrote might seem a bit strange and you might reject it for a deeper explanation and analyze of what’s really going on. All I ask is just to give it a shot.

    We create ourselves by the decisions we make.

    If you decide to wake up at 5 and run outside. How will that affect you? If you decide to change your job and do it, how will that affect you? If you decide to reply to what I’ve written, how will that affect you?

    We create ourselves by the decisions we make. We alter our reality by will. Sometimes there is a simple solution to a complicated question.
