I would emphasize here the "There isn't anything you can do for other people aspect".

If your life is awful, and you can exchange it for a life working towards whichever transhuman goal suits you best: "FAI" "Cognitive Enhancing" "Avoiding Catastrophic Risk" "Biological Immortality", then you may have a reason not to be packed no ice yet.

Even if you think your skills are not suited to helping these areas, you could become the assistant of someone whom you think does, rendering their time more productive towards your goals.
