Usually such a question comes up in childhood but later fades with the onset of hormonal development. A person plunges into cares about family, children, and earnings and no longer looks for the answer.
But this is the most important question. Indeed, what is the point of living if I don’t know what I’m living for? Is it only about survival?
Therefore, we have to try to raise this question above everything else and we have to live, work, give birth, and build only to eventually understand the meaning of existence.
