Right off the bat, I'm a high school science student with no academic background in philosophy, other than mere personal interest. I've read meditations (like everyone else), general articles and have recently delved into Essays and Aphorisms by Schopenhauer out of desperation to read just anything that'll break me out of my recent,but oh so long phase.
Quite lately I find myself in a mind dump and my nonchalant attitude towards everything around me leads my inexperienced brain to credit it to a nihilistic mentality. I was wishing if i could be directed towards texts providing fresher perspectives into questions like the meaning of life, the incompetence of human and why we cease worrying about worldly stuff sometimes a little too early in life. And also yeah, how to get out of this rut. Hehehe, thanks in advance.
