I used to shy away from the belief that “everything is meaningless” because it is terrifying. It is hard to cope with the fact that the underlying motive for the universe is nothing.
But, when I shifted my understanding to that very statement (everything is meaningless) it was when I began to see everything as much more meaningful. It relegated the meaning from an outside/unknown source, to myself. I was the one who was able to transcribe and decipher what meaning I found in life because as it stands naturally- there is none.
