lady-yvesa asked: (Cont) but when you realise that no meaning attached to existence means you are free, because there is no right or wrong way to live, it becomes easier to deal with this idea. Any choice you make is valid, because no one, nothing decided what your life should be about. I find it quite freeing. No meaning in life feels empty the same way a big room feels empty when you are used to small closets. This is my idea of nihilism and how I see the consequences of it. Love, Yvesa
Nihilism is not freeing it’s debilitating and paralyzingly because it’s maintaining a permanent state of indecision. If every decision is equally meaningless… Then one has no guidance about which decision to make or if a decision should be made at all. In this way nihilism surrenders to hedonism because if you take away any kind of guidance for what choices to make you will just do whatever you feel like. It’s more of a self paralysis that can be crippling on any kind of drive or will or motive a nihilist would have to muster up in order to care about participating in life.
