>If children were brought into the world by an act of pure reason alone, would the human race continue to exist? Would not a man rather have so much sympathy with the coming generation as to spare it the burden of existence, or at any rate not take it upon himself to impose that burden upon it in cold blood?

>It is really incredible how meaningless and insignificant when seen from without, and how dull and senseless when felt from within, is the course of life of the great majority of men. It is weary longing and worrying, a dreamlike staggering through the four ages of life to death, accompanied by a series of trivial thoughts. They are like clockwork that is wound up and goes without knowing why. Every time a man is begotten and born the clock of human life is wound up anew, to repeat once more its same old tune that has already been played innumerable times, movement by movement and measure by measure, with insignificant variations. Every individual, every human apparition and its course of life, is only one more short dream of the endless spirit of nature, of the persistent will-to-live, is only one more fleeting form, playfully sketched by it on its infinite page, space and time; it is allowed to exist for a short while that is infinitesimal compared with these, and is then effaced, to make new room. Yet, and here is to be found the serious side of life, each of these fleeting forms, these empty fancies, must be paid for by the whole will-to-live in all its intensity with many deep sorrows, and finally with a bitter death, long feared and finally made manifest. It is for this reason that the sight of a corpse suddenly makes us serious.
What the fuck was his problem?

Read Schopenhauer, Cioran, Ligotti and Zapffe. It isn't doomerism per se, but after reading them you won't care anymore.

Very genuine responses, I think I can see it now after sleeping on it and not dwelling so much on the "dont be sad it's over, be glad it happened" mindset. perhaps im just looking at the worst sort of problems in his life that just kept being a perpetual state of disappointment to his life, and in some ways makes me realise how painful it is to dwell so much on the bad things.

Fell for the religion meme. Trusted my future to the church and the moment I second guessed them I got kicked to the curb without anything to show for it. I shouldn't have trusted my parents, I thought I was being such a nonconformist by doing that. Don't ever trust anyone who tells you you don't need to be self sufficient or confident in your own self-efficacy, they don't have your best interests in mind. And anyone who wants to control the information you can access believes themselves to be your master.

Now I have to start to rebuild my life from basically nothing, no connections, no assets, no capital, no family. Wasted my whole life chasing ghosts and now I'm faced with a rude awakening without any marketable skills or confidence in my ability to survive

We do but its not because we're shaming them for not having sex. We are shaming them for wanting to have sex. /lit/ is a Volcel board.
