Some people say that existence is pain. I believe this to be true, but also false at the same time. There are many things in life that make existence painful from a lack of meaning to an existential crisis. Yet there are other things in existence that give it meaning and joy as well. The dichotomy between these two forces creates an interesting dynamic where we can easily find both pain and pleasure simultaneously throughout our lives if we just look hard enough for them; or sometimes they will find us even without trying too much!

Existence is Painful – A Philosophical Explanation as to Why Life Is Painful! (continued)
The dichotomy between these two forces creates an interesting dynamic where we can easily find both pain and pleasure simultaneously throughout our lives if we just look hard enough for them; or sometimes they will find us even without trying too much! The idea that existence could be so multifaceted in its meaning should remind you every day, at least once, how fantastic life really is. And no matter what the circumstances are, always remember that there’s a simple solution despite all the complexities: “stay calm.” Indeed being alive means not only suffering but also enjoying things such as laughter and love with other people.

Interesting, huh? It’s so easy to find pleasure in existence even though life is agonizing and full of pain during many moments. And yet the fact that there are these two forces at work can show us a few things about what existence means: it has both good aspects and bad ones, or if you prefer, one side with more positive feelings than negative ones; but also another part with just the opposite effect. In other words we could say that existence balances itself out between being painful while still feeling nice too – which then leads me to my final point before concluding this article… A Philosophical Explanation as to Why Life Is Painful! (continued)
Going back to the idea of existence balancing itself out, we can see that it’s not just about whether something is painful or pleasurable in particular. It would be possible for someone to have a life where they experience more pain than pleasure but still feel satisfied because of how much worse their existence could have been if say, every moment was agony and nothing felt good at all. And conversely there are people who may live without any significant amount of pain during certain periods and yet on the whole find existence terrible because so many moments were bad instead of good – even though these two groups seem opposite from one another when looking specifically at what each individual feels subjectively. A Philosophical Explanation as to Why Life Is Painful
What is existence? It’s nothing, and that means existence is pain. Existence can’t be experienced as anything but pain because it takes a lot of time for something to exist, and the amount of time spent not existing is incomparably larger. The complete opposite would have been true if we existed in less than an instant – when existence could only ever be felt as pleasure (or non-existence). But even then there’d still be some sense of frustration since no matter what it couldn’t last forever: existence always had to end eventually so that non-existence could start again. So really there was never any point where life might feel like more than just mere minutes or hours long for those who were living at a different pace from the existence they were in.
This is also true of life as a whole, since it’s always going to be less than an instant long for any given person – so really there was never a point where all their existence could feel like anything but pain: no matter how many decades or centuries pass by, people will only ever exist for mere minutes at best. In other words, existence feels bad because time doesn’t stop when we die and before that death can take some time to get here. The end result means that existence is painful because it takes up so much space (time) and what isn’t yet existing still has to wait its turn until something else dies first.
