Even if you have free will, a your options are very much constrained by accidents of birth and fortune – a kid who grows up illiterate won’t become an astrophysicist or great poet, for example. Zeno’s answer is that it’s best to accept your fate and run with the cart rather than be dragged. You will still have plenty of opportunities to test how much slack there is in that rope. In either case (determinism or free will) the real matter at hand is taking notice of what you can control and what you can’t control and to not worry about the latter. Once you’ve resigned yourself to that, you’ll be amazed at how things come into focus.

Most people undergo “existential crisis” via self-indulgence. Those people simply need to get their heads out of their ass. But if you’re really struggling with cynicism, it is probably wise to talk to a professional rather than random redditors.
