tfw you are Nietzsche and you realize early in life that nihilism is going to be the bane of human existence and you write yourself into a nervous breakdown insisting that humanity can still purse meaning in spite of the collapse of religion and cultural values through passionately pursuing art and philosophy and 100 years later idiot teenagers think you are a nihilist and use your philosophy to justify a hedonistic meaningless existence
