When you stop believing in God, one of the hardest things to figure out is what purpose your life has. You’re no longer trying to get into Heaven or please God… so what’s the point?
One PostSecret submitter had this unusual answer:
I’m not sure how faking religion gives you real meaning… but I get the sentiment. For what it’s worth, plenty has been written about how atheists find meaning in their lives. You don’t need a Higher Power; you just need something to live for, whether it’s family, work, or a cause.
You can leave an impact on this world that will live on long after your time is over.
