  • Existentialism is a much more satisfying philosophy when considering one's own personal meaning; for this reason I really enjoyed studying existentialism and applying it to my life. It is also a very liberating philosophy that values autonomy as opposed to regulation and strict law.

Existentialists tend to ignore the fact that we are born different, that we are born with personalities independent from life experiences. Do we have free will? Yes, I believe we do. Is that free will completely free and unrestricted? No, we are restricted, in part, by who we are when we're born and who we are as a result of the choices we have made up unto this point.
