Life seems to be meaningless to me.

Life seems to be meaningless to me.

It is very natural for life to seem to be meaningless. It is true that not only life but also all other things have no meaning whatsoever on their own unless you give meaning to them. There is nothing that has its own meaning or nature without being given by you. It is not because life has its own meaning but because you yourself give meaning to it that it has meaning. That’s why life looks and feels different to each of us and each of us has different values of life. How life looks depends on how you see it and what meaning you give to it. If life seems to be meaningless, it can be likened to a white canvas. You can start to design a beautiful life on it anew by giving your own meaning to it as you please.

What you must bear in mind is that the fact that you are alive now is the most meaningful to you. A meaningful life is to you as an art work is to an artist. However meaningful and great an art work may be, it cannot be as meaningful as its creator himself.
