Why do we exist?

Have you ever wondered why we are here in the first place? If not, Think about it……  Why are we here? No matter what you believe in or what you choose to avoid thinking about there must be an explanation. There must be a reason that we live, that we hurt, and love. I can’t fathom the idea that we are meaningless, that we are nothing; Nothing but a scientific improbability. Maybe it’s just my wishful thinking, however, if we were actually just meant to be nothing than why do we all have a need to have a purpose? Why would we strive to be better? Why would we care about our loved ones  if we were truly so meaningless? What’s the point of ethics if we don’t have a purpose in the first place? What are we competing for? What are we trying to prove? And to whom are we trying to convince our worth? Deep inside of each of us we know that there must be something more. There must be a reason we live. It’s not just a worthless cycle. I constantly hear people saying that they simply want happiness, but why is forever lasting happiness impossible to achive? Why? Why are we such intelligent creatures yet we know very little about how to remain in a state of constant contentness, for some, the idea seems simply infeasible. Why is love necessary for the success of the human race? As mankind we are the only ones who seem to understand the idea of unconditional love that spans far beyond a family environment or simply for the “sake of repopulation,” as many people rebuttal against agnostic believers. Morality would not be chizzled into our hearts if our purpose was simply to be. There is a reason we love, we hurt, we feel lost, we long for a place in the world.
