    Do not follow social conformity and work only for the reason of money.
    Follow your dream and your life actually has meaning.

    Ask yourself what you really want in life otherwise living in regret is one of the worst things you can do..

    Re: Philosophy

    Yes, I agree with you. Good video too. On the other hand, people seem to be tired of advices like this. I guess it's because every each one of us has to come to this conclusions by himself. Hearing about altering theirs perception may be confusing if you are not feeling the source of the will to change.
    what if i told you that you can go to the gym without telling everyone on facebook about it

    Yeah thx.
    It's a really good advice though.. and it sucks to hear people who eventually regret working for decades doing something they absolutely hate and they could've done something that made their lives more enjoyable. Although sometimes, the activity/interest that people are passionate about don't earn them as much money but at least they're not living a miserable life. It sucks for some people who really want to do something out of the norm but are afraid to..

    Re: Philosophy

    Philosophy is a useless endeavor. My personal view is that life is a game meant to be played, not analysed rigorously.

    Re: Philosophy

    I only really like and appreciate analytic-ish philosophy. I say -ish because analytic philosophy was a term that refers only to philosophy in the english world since the 20th century, however that type of rigorous systematic philosophy had been practiced in the medieval scholastic era and also before that.

    But I can see other people in this thread have different interests.

    Re: Philosophy

    Loose strings...

    Free will is a bit of limited answer to explain why God allows or why there is (in general for some non-theists) suffering. The reason I say this, is because free will is something that is either poorly defined, or does not factor in 'all factors'

    I don't mind philosophy as a science/subject. But I do think that it can lead to the assumption that we can fully (completely that is) understand God or anything similar.

    I think the question of "why are we here? what purpose is there to life?" is one worth investigating, even if you end up saying that it is just meaningless/pointless (which I can't see a theist saying that, but I can see an atheist saying that, which is not necessarily a bad thing for them)

    However, there isn't much to explore in existentialism though. There's no absolute answer to that question of 'why are we here?', so I personally find it pointless.

    I'm more interested in the Philosophy of Psychology.

    Agreed. It's also a bit of a depressing topic tbh.

    Once read a book about it and never again....
