“One of the ways we can beat the feeling of purposelessness is to stop trying to make ourselves happy.

But doesn’t everyone want to be happy? Maybe not.

Life is too short to do what doesn’t matter, to waste your time on things that don’t amount to much. What we all want is to know our time on earth has meant something. We can distract ourselves with pleasure for only so long before beginning to wonder what the point is.

This means if we want true satisfaction, we have to rise above the pettiness of our own desires and do what is required of us.”
