Why Not Live?

Humanist Thought of the Week: 3 9 2010

Why Not?

Existential depressions aren’t fun.

One of the big questions people struggle with when they conclude that this existence is all there is – is….

What do they do now?

Whether we live or die, it makes no difference to the universe.

So why not die?

I have never understood that response.

Especially when it is just as easy to ask – why not live?

Why not take advantage of the fact that despite all the odds, you are alive.

Now. For only a short period of time.

There are lots of wonderful things to experience in this universe.

So why not go out and live and enjoy yourself.
