davidbrucehaiku: Existentialism






we are truly free

we create our own essence

with our own free will


NOTE: According to Existentialism, we have existence and then create our essence. We have reason and free will, and we are responsible for the kind of person we become. No fair saying, “Poor, poor, pitiful me, I should have been born a rich Kennedy. If my parents had been John and Jackie Kennedy, I would have lived an interesting life. Instead, my life is boring.” You are responsible for your life. If you wish to have a great love affair or a great friendship, it is up to you to go out and have one.
