I am becoming a nihilist
The last 30 days or so something has come over me. I don't care anymore. Not to say that I am becoming evil or malignant, or even narcissistic, I just find myself not caring about bad shit that happens, or even good shit that happens. People ask me for help and I will help them, but without investing any emotional energy. Its not even a feeling of emptiness, its almost peaceful. I am giving less and less shits about people and their problems, even my own.

My life got turned upside down 8 months ago and I spent 7 of them feeling sorry for myself, having crying jags, even contemplating suicide. Is this a "dark night of the soul"..an existential crisis?

Re: I am becoming a nihilist
Welcome to the club bro. You're halfway towards getting the whole point :)

1. The universe is impossible and yet, clearly, possible
2. The universe is nonsensical - everyone waddles through life clinging to some way of understanding everything, and no way is the right way, nor is any one way complete.
3. Life is absurd, chaotic, hilarious and tragic all at once.
4. The only order is the order we impose.
5. You're free to make sense of anything and everything however you choose.
6. There are an infinite number of ways to die in any one second - and yet we don't die. (BIG CLUE)

Accurate. About a week ago, its sounds crazy but true, I just started thinking about how absurd everything is, how silly people are, as you say-clinging, clinging to their little lives and their little problems. I literally laughed for 5 minutes until my side hurt. First time in my life. Now, don't get me wrong, this is not a "hate" thing, I don't hate humanity or people, I just find it all to be absurd to the point where I can't take any of it seriously anymore. Not even things like "responsiblities".

And what is it to not take something seriously? It's to treat it as a joke, a game, PLAY.

Are you working your way through life or dancing? :)

You might enjoy the works of nietzsche. Read this book by him, i think you will relate:

Re: I am becoming a nihilist
welcome to the club, I've felt that way for a while now, its a great feeling to not give a shit.

Also check out E. M. Cioran, he was a great nihilist, a short history of decay is a good read.

Re: I am becoming a nihilist
I assure you, nihilism is pointless;
by it's very princeps, there can be no inherent point, if you adhere to nihilism - doing so is basically denying your own existence, a sort of psychological suicide. Best advice?
go discover yourself!

Re: I am becoming a nihilist

existentialism is the shit. go catch a jean paul sartre play, or pick up a book.

Is there a word for not giving a shit anymore? I even find my friends and family absurd. Facebook is even worse, here is a sample of some of the things people put up:

-I got a new door today and painted it

-I am getting a tattoo on my ankle on Tuesday

-My kid is getting their braces off

-I went to a shower today and ate haggis

-I can't believe Alabama lost today
