Meaning of Life 2

“The point is that even if your life did have a meaning, discovering that meaning wouldn’t have the emotional and practical significance that we typically take it to have.

So what would have that emotional and practical significance?

People tend to think more about the meaning of life when they feel dissatisfied with how their lives are going or suspect they were wrong to pursue the sorts of careers or life projects they’ve pursued.

The meaning of life, whatever it is, is supposed to offer guidance to people facing these sorts of situations.”

—- from Ask a Philosopher

Instead of questioning if your life has a meaning, go make yourself satisfied with what you are doing and what you own.

By “make yourself satisfied”, it means do something that suits you.

What you wanted may not suit you.
