Just a question
Once you remove from your life the idea that there's someone/thing/force who will dole out the reward, you've got to figure all of that out. I think a 'good life' is the norm. I think most people live good lives.
For some unknown reason, we're here and that's really where it ends for me. I have a tough time admitting that, but I can't help but think this is all there is. I've had a really tough time coming to terms with it over the past few years. I don't like it and I don't like thinking about it. It's made me horrendously sentimental and this idea that all my memories will rot away with my body is something I can't stomach. I've also formed ridiculous theories in a futile attempt to preserve or restart my old way of thinking - that there has to be something after - but common sense is an unforgiving jackass.
