Is it normal that I've realized everything is pointless?

No, I mean it. That little nagging feeling finally came to. There. Is. No. Point. Whatever they've assigned to it, whatever they tell you it's worth, it has no value; what ever fleeting joy it brings you has no meaning. All the riches, fame and glory mean nothing. They're just empty distractions from the futility of working for paper slips of ever decreasing, arbitrarily assigned value. No, I'm not suicidal. Why bother altering a zero? It has no value. I just... Don't care. Not anymore. I'm done. Just...Fuck it all.

I have similar thoughts. It's the pointless pursuits. The hedonic treadmill. The animalistic and biological aspects of psychology. Sometimes I'm struck with the knowledge that all my efforts in life are of no real value. I mean I crawl out of bed every day and face certain adversity. I labor to better myself financially and mentally for what amounts to nothing. The game is life and the prize is death. It's like hand fabricating a sports car. You put such time, care and effort and into making everything perfect. You sand and hammer, you paint and weld, you tune and polish...all the while knowing when you finish you're going to push it off a cliff. At times I find difficult to find the motivation to continue to work so hard when I know it's not going to make a god damn bit of difference how much I pushed myself, how much self restraint I've practiced, when I go over that cliff. The obvious answer to this dilemma is to get pleasure and fulfillment out of not only the product but also the process. As cliche as it sounds it's not the destination but the journey that should bring satisfaction. I too often find myself living for the destination.

Well, the outcome of the realization varies depending on who you are. For me, it makes me want to get rid of this useless system. I want to toss it aside and smash it to pieces, but I can find no suitable replacement; so I leave it as is. I don't want to let it have control, so the necessity of my inaction enrages me, and ends with me here; filled with contempt and unable to change a god damn thing.

Exactly true. There are three things that do have value: your mother's basement, a bag of Cheetos, and internet porn. Have a tranquil life.

OP, I feel the same. I'm not trying to be dramatic, but in my opinion, everything that occurs seems like a chain of pointlessness. Surprisingly, I don't feel depressed about this though.

I don't feel depressed about it either; It just pisses me off.

Your glass is half empty. Just try to live life comfortably and try to ease some of the bitterness/hopelessness you're feeling in some way.

You have to make your own point to things. There isn't a universal one. (unless you're a god botherer)

I know I exist. I know life is pointless, and that doesn't bother me. This is more a crisis of governing and disdain for the uselessness of society...

you care too much about the overall outcome. i dont know how to help you get over it but sounds like you need to go yolo somewhere.

It's normal for that thought to enter your head, but fight it! Nothing good can come of it. People's feelings matter; animals' feelings matter. Spreading happiness and reducing misery is a noble deed and ought to be attempted by all.

You hate yourself because you don't do anything. Or if you do things, they are 'consuming' things like videogames and netflix. You need to do 'creation' things, to better yourself and impact your world or you will live an unfulfilled and miserable life.

You need to push yourself through discomfort if you want to be able to sleep at night knowing the day was not wasted.
