if you end up dying tomorrow without fulfilling all you wanted to, then what's the point of life? what was the point of me going to school for the past 17 years if im just going to end up dying tomorrow?

I think the point is to build up experiences and have a full, rich life. It's what we do with our life while we have it that is important, not when we die, or even that sooner or later we will die. If you start thinking what's the point then you will get nowhere, not even out of bed in the morning.

Life's a b*tch sometimes, live life to the full each day as the next might be your very last day on this foolish earth, life is for living and just think of all the living things in the world all get the same deal of crap we do, so thank god or whatever for everyday you are still here!

U r right. What is the point of life if you don't to fulfill everything u wanted to do. The thing is you have to live everyday like it is ur last incase u de tomarrow or tonight. That's what I do because I'm always afraid that I'm not gonna get fulfill what I wanna do so I do everything that I can to help myself do what I wanna do with my life. U went to school to better yourself and you made friends that care about you. You have the knowledge that you need to live life and you have the friends. I'm only 17 but this is the way I look at things because life is a gift and we should all use it while we can and try to make the best of it while we're here. If we don't then I feel that we're doing an injustice to those who can't fulfill their life dreams because of some life event that now prevents them from doing so. You tell me is life worth living or should we all just kill ourselves? What will we be missing if we kill ourselves? Is it fair that we take our lives for granted and say that they're not worth living when there are those out there who are fighting to live?

I do not think anyone knows the answer to your question. No one knows when they are going to die. It could be tomorrow, it could be 75 years from now. The best you can do is to make your life as good as you can. You ask what was the point of going to school all those years, who knows? You may be the person who discovers something that will change a major problem in the world. You may write an all inspiring book that changes the way people think about their life. You never know. Sure, you may die tomorrow, but what if you don't? What if you do live another 75 years, wouldn't you be glad you that you have the intelligence to support yourself and your family. Life is short, either way, if it is 1 year or 100 years. Do the best you can do to enjoy it and make the best of it.
