We are alone, together. Death is inevitable. Life experiences have the potential to be authentic through taking action. Self-realization of one’s uniqueness is part of existing actively. Living existentially is not being bounded by constraints, spiritual or societal. Existing is absurd. Existing is beautiful. Existing is a paradox.
p.s. On Saturday, I read Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit for the 2nd time in my lifetime thus far, and again, I love the play. I love the dialogue that comes out of it after reading. I love the thoughts about existing, living, and even dying, that it evokes. So, here’s to existing purposefully, making life meaningful, and offering meaning to others!
p.p.s. Both times I’ve read No Exit, I was/ am a sophomore. Ironic, huh?
