existential coffee

Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee? ☕️ My favorite quote, by Albert Camus, absolutely sums up depression, existentialism and absurdism. These are heavy topics, and it sounds dark, but there's something funny about how ridiculous our brains are, and how little we understand of our own existence. We find purpose and assign meaning to things because we have to in order to not develop a fatalistic view of life. I like to see the humor in this concept, and also how liberating it can be to realize that these are two very real -albeit very different- options we all have. There can be levity in the macabre, for that's the point when you see there may not be a reason for any of this. You don't have to stay there, but visiting that possibility can bring a lot of perspective. And for some people, this doesn't sound like a silly question at all. (I choose coffee, obviously.)
