Pointlessness

I’d say 6/7 days a week I think about this topic.

Pointlessness.

A bookshelf has a point – to hold books.

A pencil has a point, quite literally and also to write.

But I’m not a bookshelf or a pencil, and for the simple reason that they both have a point to existence, I envy them. Yes, that’s strange, but it is what it is.

I just wish I could find out what, if it exists, my point is. Is it to find love? I doubt it, I’m shy and awkward, so the chance of me finding someone to love is fucking low. Is it to change the political world? Again, I doubt it. I tend to bend under pressure, due to the lack of my own confidence.

Do you see where my problem lies now? The mysterious question that I’ll never be able to answer.

What is YOUR point to life? I’d love to know.

❤️

  1. Would such a fine being (a human) have a purpose of such a short-term problem?

    My purpose in this life is to offer something good for the whole wide world. I want to write so people would relate and think instead of follow. I want to teach, to advise. I know all of my actions in this life will be accounted for.
    My purpose is to offer what I have in hopes of getting the reward I want.
    My religion is my only tether to this world and its insanity. It helped me get out of my suicidal thoughts. Nothing is born out of boredom, or else…living would be quite…unlivable.

  2. interesting question and amazing how so many people are unable to actually answer this. I suffered for years not knowing what I should do, all throughout school and when I left I was left with no clue (brilliant education there!) but if nothing else I think helping others in any capacity made me feel good so I try to do that as much as possible. Even through blogging, there is a purpose, you’re sharing your thoughts with others and that can often be enough because someone else may be having the same questions and feelings as you. So while you try to figure out (if you even want to) what your purpose is, just make doing anything you enjoy your purpose. These days I blog and feel like just sharing my views can help others who might want to read them. It makes me feel good thinking that my blogging is helping people (even if it isn’t) and that motivates me and gives me a purpose to continue…better than being in a horrible depressive mood ❤ 🙂

    Don't worry, I'm sure one day you'll figure out what you want your purpose to be, but don't make it a mission that you upset yourself if you don't have the answer. Just try lots of different activities (ones that appeal to you, you don't have to do things that are socially difficult) and see if there's anything that clicks and you enjoy. I believe our purpose is found when we find out what we love to do, even as a hobby…I'm now reading and reviewing books and want to do more blogging but it took me years of being too shy and not bothering to do anything but play videogames before I figured out how much I love doing what I do now 🙂

    btw, sorry for the long comment…I realise I ramble a lot when I'm interested in a subject, lol

    1. Oh I’m so moved that you would write such a long comment for one of my posts! It means so much that you care. And to your advice I say – Yes! I think you’ve hit the nail on the head! Thanks so much💕

  3. There is no point in having no know every single thing from the beginning of the journey, Harry.
    So what if you are shy, so what if you haven’t found love yet?
    Life is long and the journey has only started. You will be amazed of what quests will meet you on the way, just have patience and you will find your purpose, everybody has one.

    Have a great Sunday!

  4. I don’t know what the point of my life is. Maybe the answer will come one day. Sorry if my response was a bit boring and not as enlightening as the other bloggers. Haha. 😅

    1. No that encapsulates exactly how I feel, which is frustrating for me, because I wish I had a reason to be here. Also, just the fact that you’ve commented on this and so many others of my posts warms me to the core 💕
