What's the reason you wake up everyday?

What keeps you motivated to live life?

What keeps you from committing suicide or a slower method of destruction?

    I only ask because it seems that life feels so circuitous. We get up and do the same ? day in day out, year in year out like we aren't progressing as a species.

    For all the bluster of western civilization, ? are really still doing the same ? , we use technology to do the same ? ? were doing 100, 200, 1000 years ago, Chase ? , get lit, get money.

    It feels like the human condition is a prison.

    Meet ? half way First! 1) Spread knowledge. People like listening to me so I've always made it a point to have Superior oratory skills when passing verbal gems. 2) Study our ( Black ) past and ancestors. 3) Be kind and have fun.

    Repetition is apart of life. It what makes us sane. Humans have a difficulty getting out their comfort zones, and are use to doing daily routines.

    Repetition is what drives us to madness as well. People in general do the same ? 5 days a week and try to wild out for the next 36-40hours just to escape the reality they bout to go do it all over again.

    In less developed countries they do this for six days and they relax by going to church.

    Like we think we are progressing but we're marching in this loop there's some bumps some dips some hills and valleys to climb to cast an illusion but it's still an enclosed circuit.

    So helping others is your purpose? So you need the misfortunes of others in order to feel valuable.

    What would happen if your family told you they don't need you. "Appreciate it fam but no thanks"

    What would be your purpose then?

    Allah is a pagan moon ? formerly known as allat.

    The world is better. What then will acquiring this knowledge do for you? If you were to gain all the knowledge of the world at age 39 and 3 days, would you be ready to die at age 39 and 4 days?

    I dint do it for a thank you. having kids an a wife an being a man for them.....is my purpose.
    growing an bettering myself is my purpose.

    in the process ...I can give to other what I have obtained. I am a simple man with an abundance. once fam is secure....then your job....well my job is to help others.

    it's but so much a person needs....other are hungry an barefoot.

    how can you overlook that?

    Loved ones... money. (Not in that order)

    I think if I woke up in another world, with complete amnesia not knowing who my family and friends were, I'd live life totally different.

    I'd still try to get $$$ money but I'd give 2 ? about saying ? this ? .

    Average life just ain't rewarding enough, I'm not religious, I'm not rich, no small kids depending on me... gettin older, probably gonna start gettin some chronic illnesses and ? - ? all that.

    The mane above keeps on waking me up each morning, so I keep on serving him and pushing..

    My baby daughter keeps me motivated. I had a great childhood, and I push so hers is better than mine.

    What keeps me from suicide? My daughter and my little brother. I know one day I'll be gone from this earth, but I can't go yet because my little girl hasn't been equipped with my values as she's very young. Once I feel she's ready, then I'll be alright to go. Also, I just couldn't imagine killing myself. Even through the down and hard times, life is great and has been good to me.

    Not gotta lie. I'm close to my point right now and I'm still so young. I'm trying to figure what I really want to become later on in life. It's depressing when you have no life purpose or no end goal. Has suicide ever cross my mind? Once in a while, though I never tried an attempt. My family keeps me going day in and day out. Right now all I think of, that's motivating me, is somehow helping out more of my family members in Nigeria. And making a difference for them. Other than that, ? everybody else.
