I think what this man suffers is from in a form of melancholy. In the sense that he has seen all that life has to offer, and he doesn't care anymore.
The game of "life" has become boring, and he simply wants off.
Judging from his words, he is apathetic to those around him, and probably in the past used them for his own "means". Now that his self motivation is
totally spent. He can't find the power in himself to continue. He belittles those who seek motivation out side themselves, yet limits the terminology
of life by his own definitions.
The only person to "convince" him would be himself. He dwells in his egotistical pity, and while the rest of the world "attempts" to help other as
themselves. He dwells in his self pitty, and makes fun of those who find meaning beyond themselves.
For me, self worth comes from helping others. Life sucks, so sad. Accept it, get on with life. I am not the center of the world, I am nothing, my
worth comes from serving others not myself. And if my worth is but my self and my possessions, then let this dog die in his own vomit. I find
happiness in what little I have, and friendships that I keep. Moderation is the key to enjoyment, and give excess to those in need.
Seek Epicureanism instead of hedonism.
