You know how people say you should be thankful and more appreciative of your parents who gave you life? Of your mother who carried you in the womb for nine months. And because of all of their hardship and pain raising you up and providing for you, you should respect them.
But I mean, who asked them to? This is not a license to be a pathetic rude person. But living is hard, death is easy, but never existing, that’s different, cause there never was.
People never asked to be born. It was all on the parents’ decision. They decided to procreate, which from what I’ve heard, is pleasurable. And then there’s pregnancy and on and on and that’s not because of the selfless act of giving life to a person.
No, I think it’s very selfish to give birth, to subject a person to all the hardships and pain of life, to everything that is evil that is in this world. Parents had all the pleasure during coitus, and I’m sure they’re happy and proud seeing a life grow, viewing their kids as their legacy, a mark they can leave on Earth.
But why do you need to leave a mark. Life is fleeting so, so why bother with lasting existence in the memory of a person? Can’t you just live, and then leave? Why must you leave someone, who will experience pain, and happiness, disappointment, love, hurt.
What’s the point of having a child? I didn’t asked to be born and be subjected to all of this. Of course I’ll live my life to the fullest. But that’s just me rationalizing life and existence. Isn’t it better to never have existed at all. But then again, if there never was, then this would never be.
