If a person who always thinks about "why am I living? What is the meaning of life?", and often feels that life is meaningless. He doesn't trust anybody,he has no friends. Does he has the depression?

i would think of him as a depressed person. Talking about the meaning of life, I think it's different for each of us.

What is the meaning of life? For all of my philosophical advice I refer to that all-knowing guru, Homer Simpson: "What is mind? No matter. What is matter? Never mind!"

Its just natural for a person to question the reason for his existence. We all like to know the mystery behind our conception. However, if a person thinks that his life is meaningless, then he is geared towards depression. Having no friends is essentially a question of trust. That person may have a paranoid personality disorder or schizoid. Both are personality disorders which affects a person's social and psychological health and well-being.

I'm always confused with the meaning of life. In my life,although I have been working for 4 years, I still have to learn and study with an aim to find a better job. Sometimes I feel it's so boring to be confined in one city and do routine things everyday just as to reach a ridiculous dream, changing to the better job and higher salary, but what if I have enough money at the cost of losing health,friends,and lover? I can't imagin! Still I'm scared to start my first step and firmly stuck in one place. It's my fault! Anyway, I should have more coverage to take action and actually realize what I want.Moreover,I should not live without my friends,my parents and also my lover.

Seems like depression, yes. But it's easily reversed. I too have suffered from these thoughts, but I realized the key to life is enjoying yourself. You need to stay positive, and always use positive reinforcement to pick yourself back up in tough times. Envision good things and good things will come. Don't focus on the negative in life. They say that life is too short, but it's not. It's a long, time-consuming experience, and journey. Just live it the best you can live it, and how you see fit for your style. Good luck to you.

Well, to me, life means to move on and fight with all obstacle things. life doesn't mean to live or trust anyone but it'd be better to have someone to trust. life can be depress but it'd be better to have happy life. Can you imagine how much you spent already since you're born? I was like you before but when I saw my mother's tears then I realized many things, same time feeling so guity and sinful that I made my mother cried. I used to think that I experienced many things, there's no regret in my life so I'm ready to die at anytime but I didn't realize at young age that I was someone who makes life to the one who gave me life. And 5 year passed by, I just felt that I was so stupid. And now I'm living in another country, I see many things I'd done in the past affect things a lot to me now. Anway it's not so bad since it made me learn that there are many things for me. This world is really so wide. I feel like I'm not ready to die anymore, until I success all the goals and visions I have. Life does't consist only love or work or family or money or freinds or etc. but all. So if you lost some of it, then you still can survive. jsut find more yur goal and purposes of life. Although you lost something in some part but still there are many things waiting for you to accomplish.

Life is unanswerable question. If we try to solve this problem then again answer becomes question. Just to define life we can express it as ????????????

I honestly think that someone who is constantly looking for answers is trying TOO hard and will never find them...does that mean he is depressed...well maybe..but its not something that can't be handled....I think its important for ppl to realize that the meaning of life FOR ME is DIFFERENT to the meaning of life for anyoe else and thats the case for EVERYONE..no two meanings are the same because we arent carbon copies of one another....If a person is feeling that life is meaningless..they need to take a step back from trying to figure it out and just BE for a little while...

Sounds like it yes. Personally I think we are here, living, to learn. After we have learned what we have to learn we go on to a better life. One of the things we need to learn is to trust, and make friends. Take care.
