Comment: A person like you who was born with the question of the meaning of our existence and understands that if his life is temporary and so then there is no need to live, thinks about this. But today many people still do not ask this question.
My Response: Then suffering will force them gradually and the question will arise.
I also did not have it right away. What do you mean I was born with this question? It appeared from the feeling of emptiness of this life, and that, that in general, there is nothing in it.
I was born in a very well-off family with excellent conditions, received an education, and I had no problems in the corporeal sense all my life. I know how to provide for myself and how to conduct business.
I had no problems with anything except for one thing: Why am I doing all this? This is the question that constantly bothered me. Everything else I had in abundance and in surplus. You can say that I was born “with a golden spoon.” This is what is called “Mazal” (luck). But the question of the meaning of life bothered me all the time.
There are people who come to this question through suffering. They have such problems that they begin to ask themselves: “Why? What for?
What is happening to me? What have I done wrong?” From this they gradually reveal the meaning of life.
Eventually, we all will reveal it.
