“Absolute futility,” says the Teacher. “Absolute futility. Everything is futile.” What does a man gain for all his efforts that he labors at under the sun? A generation goes and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises and the sun sets; panting, it returns to its place where it rises. Gusting to the south, turning to the north, turning, turning, goes the wind, and the wind returns in its cycles. All the streams flow to the sea, yet the sea is never full. The streams are flowing to the place, and they flow there again. All things are wearisome; man is unable to speak. The eye is not satisfied by seeing or the ear filled with hearing. What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; there is nothing new under the sun. Can one say about anything, “Look, this is new”? It has already existed in the ages before us. There is no remembrance of those who came before; and of those who will come after there will also be no remembrance by those who follow them.
God gave us life so that we could praise him and glorify him every day. He gave us pleasures, such as the sense of taste, sight, smell. He gave us choice, he gave us love, he gave us hope. He made us to live our life to it's fullest and be in the presence of him. THAT is why God gave life. I hope you believe.
I live because my God created me and loves me, and he put me on this earth for a reason, and my goal in life is to find that reason, and fulfill the role that God has assigned to me. Even though there are hard times, I know that God knows what He is doing, and He will help me through them.
God created us for his pleasure we are to please God there are a lot of people on the wrong side of paradise that would gladly trade places with you be blessed for who you are what you are remember only you can be you God carries you from the womb to the grave read the Bible it will scare the hell out of you
In Islam, the life is to worship Allah. The term "Worship" covers all acts of obedience to Allah. The true Muslim sticks to this purpose throughout all the stages of his life, whether he is a child, adolescent, adult, or an old man. Worshipping Allah makes life purposeful and meaningful, especially within the framework of Islam. According to Islam this worldly life is just a short stage of our life. Then there is the other life. The boundary between the first and second life is the death stage, which is a transitory stage to the second life. The type of life in the second stage a person deserves depends on his deeds in the first life. At the end of the death stage comes the day of judgment. On this day, Allah rewards or punishes people according to their deeds in the first life. Words I love to Conclude. It is time to find out about Islam. It is time to find out about the truth by using your own Mind. A Time for Thought. A Time for Change. A Time for Action.

Life is life. It is or it isn't If it is then it shall end and the end is death (we'll get to death later but if asked) It is straight forward but yet abstract It has a beginning, modifying factor and the end What happened before and the end of it is immaterial Life has no reason to be life Animals, plants and rivers have lives Alien life found in far space Batteries and cars have life
Once you get born again of the spirit and find the Lord, he will give you a purpose for living. He will direct your paths as you trust him each day. Read the book of John and seek to know the Lord with all your heart and you will find him.

Perhaps you should be religious! When you find the answer, become a counselor and help others with the same question! That's what God probably wants you to do: Help others! Specially those who are still suffering! Those who give, receive! Read; "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz..
You are here because your ancestors courageously learnt to conquer their enviroment, you are here because the sperm that made you beat millions of others to the egg through the hositle enviroment of the female body that attacks foreign envaders (sperm), you won the greatest race of all and was giving the gift of humanity through both of these processes. Now you get to experience what its like to be human, to ride a bike, to taste strawberries and cream, to fall in love, to laugh til you cry, to feel compassion for a fellow human being, to not understand algebra and hate the taste of brussel spouts, to sit on a shifting toilet seat, to feel sand under your feet. To feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair. To throw a snowball and get hit by a snowball. To live this life the best you can, and to help those a little less fortunate along the way.
Even if you think that there is not a soul in this world that cares a lick for what you think, for what you do, for where you go, I want you to know right now that you are wrong.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life" John 3:16
God loved you when nobody knew you, before you were ever thought of, before you were ever born. He brought you into this world out of love. He sent his only son to die for you and for me on a cross, that we can have the choice over whether to go to heaven or hell when we die. Its all a choice.
Do no be confused, that choice of heaven or hell does not give us the choice to take away our own lives. If God did not want us to live, he would have never brought us to life.
Since you aren't religious, I can't really help you. If you're thinking suicide, DON'T. It is not worth it. I'll admit there are days when I want to kill myself... but I don't even go there. We all have a purpose in life, even though it's hard to see almost all the time.
