Life is a constant problem solving - but which problems is important

Everyone of us struggles with problems in life. The difference is just what kind of problems. And what do you obtain if you solve them.

Suffering is part of life. But if you suffer due to problems that will make you achieve a goal you care about, the suffering is worth it. If you suffer for shitty values and unimportant problems you waste your significant life-time

Everybody does mistakes. But in the presence you can take responsibility for them. Fault happend in the past. Focus on the present.

Life is limited by death. So, thanks to death we can either say it doesn't make sense to do anything at all (because we're gonna die anyway) or it can also be a reason to give in someone's fear of shame. Since it's all just a bunch of nothing anyway.

Without death everything would be inconsequential, all experience arbitrary and all values worth nothing.
