    What is nihilism any way?  Well, simply put it is a negative view of life.

    • ni·hil·ism
    • the rejection of all religious and moral principles, in the belief that life is meaningless.
      synonyms: negativity, cynicism, pessimism; More
      rejection, repudiation, renunciation, denial, abnegation;
      disbelief, nonbelief, unbelief, scepticism, lack of conviction, absence of moral values, agnosticism, atheism, nontheism
      “he could not accept Bacon’s nihilism, his insistence that man is a futile being”
      Philosophy
      extreme skepticism maintaining that nothing in the world has a real existence.
      historical
      the doctrine of an extreme Russian revolutionary party c. 1900 which found nothing to approve of in the established social order.

    For the record, I do not adhere to Nihilism. I do, on occasion, dispair and then Acts 4:29-31 applies.
