We are just a speck of nothingness in this vast universe that stretches endlessly.
We are like atoms vibrating from one place to another, our existence means nothing to the wider world that is the universe.
Yet, we still think that we matter.
Unfortunately, we don’t.
Who are we to trample on other human beings, to bring others down and crush them beneath our boots?
Who are we to even consider that the world revolves around us?
Our existence will never make a difference to the universe nor will the universe even care if we exist.
And that is just the truth.
But aside from that depressing thought, we may not matter to the wider world, or even to the government and our country, but we do matter to the people around us. We do matter to the friends and family that we have, to the people that we might not really care about.
And that I think is something that we should keep in mind when we are thinking about our existence.
