I've always wondered what the point in life is, if you're not religious then it's unlikely you'll think there's some kind of grand reason why each of us is here.
No single life matters, everyone will be forgotten about eventually. Even if you do manage to do something that society decides is 'special', you still won't be remembered once the Sun dies out and obliterates the Earth.
You can take this perspective and find it inspiring, life changing even. This might sound freeing to some, you can do whatever you want, enjoy it while you can!
But I'm a pessimistic person, I take it and wonder why I should bother at all if it's worth nothing. If we're suffering then I see no logical reason why it shouldn't be allowed to just 'leave' life. It's not something we chose to be part of.
