two thoughts on existential crises. 1. I should feel lucky that I have the luxury of going down existential rabbit holes, contemplating my own existance and purpose; I don't have to worry much about food or shelter. It would be great if everyone could have that privilege. 2. Existential crises are extremely counterproductive given any sort of material goal. Want to go to Mars? Sitting there and contemplating your existence will not take you there.
Although mental fortitude and inner peace will give you the ability to be content and happy regardless of the outcome of a "material goal"..

Very true. We shouldn't limit ourselves to material goals.
