    It is not a rebuttal and it did not change a thing for me.

    Happiness. As I stated, I struggled because of feelings of depression. Those feelings latched on to the nihilistic ideas and used them as a focal point for that depression. It isn't that my beliefs are any different today; it is simply that today I am happy and then I was not.

    As to how I tackled that depression, well, I focused more on establishing routines, goals, bonds with friends and family, etc. Took a break from philosophizing about the world and made an honest attempt at enjoying what the world has to offer in the present. This has allowed me to establish a solid foundation for happiness and contentment, and with that foundation I can contemplate nihilism without "struggling" with it. Life is still meaningless from an objective standpoint, and I still consider myself basically a collection of particles governed by the laws of physics and nature... but I'm ok with that.

    Recreational drug use, reading, and interacting with company you enjoy.




    That's about it. I'm shit at coping with things appropriately.

    I just saw this thread and wonder if I'm possibly becoming a little nihilistic. The above link ties in Enneatype 9.

    ...then again it might not be nihilism per se, but an indifference so strong that it seems to resemble nihilism.

    Thoughts?

    Nihilism is not a feeling.

    That clears the air for me: it's not nihilism (I didn't quite think it was)....
