The post I just wrote above is what says I'm looking for answers...but not everyone searching for answers is seeking comfort. Some of us genuinely are after the truth. In some cases, such as the case with the few people I've met that influenced my views and changed my mind, that truth gives hope and makes life a little more worthwhile. Other times it just is what it is.

Excessive pessimism is just as much of a bias as excessive optimism. Said bias results in inaccurate thinking and answers.
My answer is just existentially extreme. Feel free to discard my response. That's kinda part of my worldview anyhow... we all have that freedom.
