If you are a Christian (Catholic, specifically), then you would know that God put us here to love and serve Him. That has always been clear to those of us who have studied Christianity. Many people, once including me, wonder what God does to deserve our love and praise, why only He should be loved above all things. Well, first of all, He is the Supreme Being, holding everything in existence. If He ceases to do so, we will all vanish, but He will continue to exist. Second, He created us, without Him we wouldn't be here. Third, He came to Earth in the form of a human 2000 years ago (Jesus Christ), to DIE for us. He came here, was crucified, beaten and spat on by His own creation so that we wouldn't be damned to Hell. He died for our sins. He was raised to life once again and ascended back into Heaven. Fourth - God will give us everything we ever wanted in return for our love and praise. He will give us a mansion, riches, thousands of friends, and Eternal Life in Heaven forever. The Meaning of Life is to love, serve, and praise God forever.

Hope this helps! - ManOfKnowledge

Living is very important because you get to experience good things that you have never experienced. Good things come after bad things, but you will have to be patient. You also have to live for the people who care about you.

To have fun, dont dwell on the reason or philosophy of it, just try hard, have fun, and do as much as you can

Since when is "fun" the most important thing in life? If someone simply lives to "have fun," that person will end up being very selfish and, most likely, quite unhappy. Focusing solely on our needs is empty and unfulfilled. It is only when we get out of ourselves and live for others that we truly find peace.

I some times feel the way you do and when I do I think this one simple question over and over again "why am I me?" it reminds me that if I didn't have an important purpose on this earth as myself then I wouldn't be hear. Your own existence is a good reason to live. The existence of a person is mathematically unlikely. And if that didn't help just remember your the sperm who won :)

When I was an eleven year old, I felt the same. I was like "Why the heck am I even here?" I started to self harm, even attempted suicide once. I woke up one morning disgusted with me and my way of living, so I gradually but efficiently pieced together my puzzle of my life one by one. I talked to my parents about my issues that had been secret for months. I got rid of my old friends who were bad influences, kept my true ones, and made new ones. I believe you can save yourself too :) You just need to look on the brightside of everything! Don't focus on the negative! I believe in you :)

I understand, except I found that when I couldn't trust any people and was getting pooped on all the time....God loved me and I could trust Him because He wasn't going anywhere. I could talk to Him and He didn't say bad things to me or tell anyone what I said or how I was feeling was stupid.

But it's not only to serve him right?

U don't see it? There isn't just one point- there's a million. Everyone could answer this question with a different answer because no one leads the same life as another.
I like living because I like learning something new everyday or maybe even 40 new things a day. I like living because I know how to have fun. I like living because there's an unlimited amount of things u could do.
Please try to enjoy the world, this place is huge and maybe u are having a bad time right now but things change.
p.s. some people aren't living, they are just breathing.- don't be one of the people who are just breathing.... live :-)

One can only have emotional knowledge through experience

What is your point? One can choose positive experiences .. Obviously not ever experience is going to be positive but you can definitely put yourself in situations where you will come out positive as opposed to negative

These feelings will pass. You are 14, and going through hormonal changes gearing you towards adulthood. Hang in there... The feelings you are having are normal... Try doing a little volunteer work. It can change your perspective... Talk to the guidance dept at school, they can offer tips. See the school nurse if you get a feeling of hopelessness.. BTW you'll probably meet a nice girl soon, and that will throw a whole new meaning about life for you.

If you are depressed and contemplating suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK) for crisis assistance. No matter how bad things seem right now, they will eventually get better, so taking your own life is never a good solution. Please talk to a trusted adult, or call the hotline, there are people who care, and will get you the help you need

Sadly your not seeing it doesn't render life to be worthless. To the purpose of life humen have different ideas. The point of living is not the same for Bill Gates & the janitor of his office. But it's reasonable to say that life is like a game of cards but only it's compulsory to play for every one of the living. You can't decide the beginning or the end of this game but you must play. Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her: but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game.

The right partner(s) in the game helps, and for it to be a fair game, the players must be fair.

Sadly buddy, it's a individual game. Partnership though is not allowed but I agree with u that fair & compassionate compatriots make the game easier. Good luck.

the purpose of living...hm. i think it is so that your spirit learns and grows before your body dies and the spirit is reborn. I think its so that life itself is continued and the world is helped. Everyone has a purpose, and it is what makes life great.

The meaning of life is for us to discover that we are
true children of an infinitely loving and merciful God,
to find out what our responsibilities are to our Creator,
and to fulfill those responsibilities.

Acari12, take some time and sit back and do some thinking. You have your life and you can make it go wherever YOU want it to go. Draw a line in the sand and step across. Then go forward in the direction of your choosing. Do the things that make you happy and help others as you go. Always help old ladies cross the street. ( had to put that in there, can't help myself) Choose the path that will make you proud of yourself. Rock on, brother. Living is way better than the alternative.
