Don't be too bummed out, anon

Don't be too bummed out, anon. There are bound to be plenty of people out there who share similar ideals or whatever. There's a philosopher who argues that Philosophy ends in disappointment which I have kind of been feeling as of late, but, I can't remember who they are. I don't really think that such notions are really the case, though. There's always something else to discover.

I kind of think that my own life hasn't really amounted to too much as well. I spent years playing music only to really be able to write in C and A and on studying philosophy to still be totally incapable of writing in such a manner that I deem to be satisfactory.

I think that the inquietude that drive inspires doesn't necessarily need to be percieved negatively though. It's good that people should all strive to do something more.

I would just keep at whatever it is that you care about doing and find the time to reflect upon life without falling way to anxiety. No one ever gets anywhere by obsessing over the future. It's best to consider all of the good things that you've done and that there are. I find that even a minimal attempt at appreciating experience really does make life a lot better.

I don't really have anything else to say, but, hope that that helps. Things will get better for you and you won't have to continue to cope with ennui. It gets to all of us. That's not much of a consolation, but, I do think that it is nice to know that there are other people out there who feel like you do. It's best, I think, to be hopeful. I've found that being somewhat diliberatly optimistic helps a lot more than you would expect. Just the slightest things can make all of the difference in the world. There's so much to life and the world around us. Why see it only negatively?
