Life has meaning? Part I


Below is a paper I wrote for an honors class I was taking almost three years ago. This, by far, has to be my favorite paper that I have written.  I will be posting it in parts because long posts can be overbearing (at least in my opinion. So, stay tuned for the remaining posts . . . )

Life Has Meaning?

            Five drafts later, and I am still wondering what the meaning of life is. I was going to try and write this paper and make it sound like I had put some educated thought into it, but that is just too much work. Now, please don’t think this is a “B.S.” paper because it is not. I did put thought into this paper, but my thoughts did not take me very far. I have tried everything from witty and sarcastic opening lines to questions that stimulate thought, but the only thing that has remained consistent in these last five attempts is the title. I believe I am struggling with this paper because I am at a point in my life where I don’t really care what the meaning of life is; I am just trying to figure out how to get through life.

“Life has Meaning?” is a question that most people ask themselves at some point in their life. Each person undergoes some sort of personal struggle; no matter how horrible or how insignificant that trouble may seem to other people, each person’s struggle seems difficult and gigantic to them.

The meaning of life

            The question – “What is the meaning of life? – can be asking one of two things. Either it is asking “What is the purpose or point of life?”, or it is asking “What is a person’s purpose in life?” Each question has different answers.
