What motivates atheists to live when life isn’t going great?
How do atheists live with the notion that “this is it”? When life is taxing, tiring, when you don’t enjoy your work or your family or your lot in life - what motivates you to keep going?
This is a bit existentialist. But there have been times where my faith was not strong, times where I questioned God and if He really exists, and those were times when my life was in disarray (thankful to say I’m doing much better now). But honestly, living for God is what motivates me in everything.
If I were not a Christian, I would have taken my life several years ago. If I had believed this was all there was, I would have done it.
What keeps atheists motivated during those times in life?
