Decide on and write down a plan for how to justify your life by undertaking a meaningful project with others; support your plan by drawing from Simone de Beauvoir’s thought. de Beauvoir thought that our lives are only authentic when we are freely engaging in projects that other free people will ultimately judge as worthy or not. Do not focus on what other people will think about your project, instead focus on your freedom to do whatever you want to do. Remember, in de Beauvoir’s thought God is dead so you are free to do whatever you would like – but other free people will ultimately “be God” too and judge your project. The key here is your personal freedom to decide what you will do with your life – you, and only you, control that decision.
