Cliche Me: Strivin For The High Life
Wrote a little bullshit for philosophy. I would share more papers but there usually a minimum of five pages and most of you all wont even read this page. A prominent question that crosses the minds of many philosophers is the concept of life, death, and inexistence and how they are associated with one another. There are many debates on the benefits of life versus the simplicity of in-existence. Is it better to be birthed into a life filled with pleasure, love, misery and torment or to never be brought into the world and remain suspended in a universe of unknowing through nonexistence? In our day and age our world is filled with plague, war, hate, starvation and despair. It is essential for citizens to have to work hours to gain simple life necessities such as food, shelter and clothes. With out a job a life can not successfully thrive. Work consumes our every day actions and our decisions. However, through the strife and the turmoil there are times happiness shines through. People can can find refuge in relationships, love, travel and beauty. Gaining satisfaction through self expression in art and communications in itself can be a reason to continue to live. Hobbies, sports, and interests keep people occupied from the daily grind we are forced to face everyday. That is why I am arguing that it is better to be born and experience life, good or bad. No matter how dark a situation is there is always a silver lining. Life is not easy and it is not a coincidence that the words “pursuit of happiness” were written in our constitution. It is the pursuit that brings purpose into our lives. Dreams are nothing more than a distant desire but no matter if these dreams and aspirations are achieved it is the pursuit that makes life worthwhile. Life is a constant battle between everyday hardships and squeezing the joy out of every moment. Life is an experience and even though there are single mothers working worthless jobs from nine to five, struggling to support a family, it is that family bond that brings pleasure and love and it is something that would never be achieved through inexistence. It is simply pathetic to try and argue that it would be better to never have been born when life has so much to offer and experience no matter if it is sometimes hard to find the beauty through the struggle.
