How do you respond if you see your friends struggling in the storm and fighting in the battle? Usually they complain about their relationship, money, work, pain.
I answer them that they have to fight their fears, not have to work for something after their death, always have to look for the good, pleasure, wellbeing, and tolerate the bad by thinking about the beautiful days.
That their lives are a result of wrong choices and avoidance.
That the ideal they chase is just a dream, there are only atoms and void.
The reactions are not positive. That's easy talk, what could be learned from an old philosopher, you laughing my troubles away...
Would I better remain silent? Or support their complaints?
