La Vida is an essay written by kamiela and shared with The Ugly Writers with the theme Recovery for the month of March.
Life is meaningless, but humans can’t accept that. They look for things that will make them happy and do things to learn. But humans kept on making mistakes, and they can’t accept that, too. So instead of regretting what they have done, they believed that they would learn from it.
Life is meaningless, but humans can’t accept that. They believed that looking for their other halves would fill it all up. They believed that love is the answer, but there are humans who can’t find it. So instead of looking for another human that they will spend their meaningless lives with, they forget themselves as well.
Life is meaningless, but humans can’t accept that. They believed that if they didn’t find the meaning, they would not be successful. They believed that without money, they can’t do everything they want and be what they wanted to be. So instead of living their lives, they made themselves like a money printing machine.
Life is meaningless, but humans can’t accept that. They don’t believe in sailing without a map. They believe that if they don’t commit mistakes, they won’t be able to learn. They believe that not finding love from other people will make them unhappy. They believe that without money they will always feel hungry.
When in fact, life is meaningless. It’s about life and not finding its meaning. It’s about the small things around them and happening to them that makes life life. It’s about being grateful and not romanticizing it.
Life is life.
It’s meaningless, because it’s not supposed to have meaning.
And death is life.
