Existential Crisis and Wrestling

Has anyone ever had an existential crisis to the point that the only thing you can find legitimate enjoyment in, outside of basic human functions like love, sex, eating, cleaning oneself etc., is pro wrestling?

i.e. have you ever realised how absurd everything is outside of your basic human needs? From the roads we walk on every day to the cars we drive in.. the books and movies that are just products of some other insane person's imagination and the insanity of the concept of "music", the notion of the universe and how we are all just a speck of dust. The fact that we are products of the universe that has come to comprehend itself. How everything is perfectly bound together in the universe, so we can do what.. act stupid?

Sometimes I feel like wrestling, funnily enough, is the only "real" thing in this world full of craziness, as wacky as that may sound. What I mean is, everything is so absurd, but the fact that wrestling culture is self-aware of its absurdness means it has created a niche that transcends other artistic mediums, imho. Has anyone else felt this way? Or am I just watching too much wrasslin?

Nothing else seems to interest me. I don't even drink or smoke anymore, so i can't chill out that way. Sometimes I do weights and do a bit of excercise but how am I gonna fill the other 15 hours of the day?

Go live your live, son. Find what you like, and go do it.

*UNLESS IT INVOLVES HURTING SOMEONE. AND I MEAN WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT. BOXING, MMA, OR PAINTBALL IS PERFECTLY OKAY*
