2. Exist for a greater reason than yourself
See the need in others lives that you can fill to help you find a purpose - there's so much need, desperation and pain in this world and you and only you can help people from the situation you are uniquely in (because there's nobody else has seen things exactly like you because nobody else has has your unique perspective)
Try to find a purpose through others - don't put as much energy into entertaining yourself or "getting yours" but find a way to leave a legacy
Money is not important...it's really not, it's just a tool - there's so much more that's possible simply from being here in this moment - unfortunately a selfish existence will almost always eventually feel empty...you have to find a way to transcend yourself and become something more

"even if I get myself busy with something, I will start pondering on the very same thing after a few days."
Don't we all, It's what make us human and you, me and others of our kind what we are.
Your pity party sounds pretty self-centered, all about you. If you think that your existance has no meaning your wrong, If you think this is it and there's nothing past death I think your wrong about that to.
I commend you for your post

The discovery is up to you. Take charge.

Sorry but nothing gives me fun anymore or I do not want to give myself into illusions knowing that the same question will come back in my mind after a few days.
THIS IS THE BEST FREAKING ADVICE EVER GIVEN IN THE WHOLE WORLD! and possibly other worlds as well.

Love is a potent drug.
It's one emotion that Aliens resent and respect us for. The ability to love and get rejected in love.

See how much dough you can Rack Up in Student Loans just for fun. Go for a record 10 years.
Have fun with it.
Rent a convertable in Vegas,drive down the strip and put "win this car if you can sit with me for more then 30minutes without being depressed" on the side of the car. Tell the homeless person to "Get The F out of the car,,it was for hot babes"
Work at Mcdonalds and bob for fries.
Write the guys from South Park and tell them their career was over 15 years ago.
Write Jay Leno and askl him can you get an autograph of his chin?
Write Oprah and tell her your glad Rosie failed but you wish OWN the best of luck because you CARE!

Fulfillment and meaning in life comes from devotion to something larger than yourself.
Work for a goal you belive in that connects you with something that allows you transcend your role as an isolated individual.
Work for justice. Power to the people, right on!
