Why do we live?

We had no choice about living or not living. We just are.
Now that we are, and have self-awareness, we can look at how.
A fruitful question might be, “How does life exist?” Given that the early universe was a very inhospitable environment, how is it that life developed, and you came to be to ask this very question?
The nature of humans is to inquire. How did I get here? Where am I in the grand scheme of my surroundings. Are we alone in the universe?
