A Meditation on Life: Existential Anguish

It is quite possible that I am taking life too seriously…

… and making myself (and sometimes others) miserable in the process.

Perhaps I ask too many questions.

Perhaps I have too much faith in human potential.

Perhaps I have too much concern for the well-being of my fellow creatures.

Perhaps all talk of freedom, responsibility, love, power, and justice is hogwash… simply a reaction formation in the face of absurdity.

Perhaps I am not really as special as I think I am.

Perhaps I should just enjoy myself as much as I can before death takes it all away.

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.

Despite these reservations, I have no choice but to err on the side of seriousness. Anything less diminishes my self-worth beyond endurance.
