Purpose in Life

I guess I still haven’t gotten the hang of this whole, soul searching thing. I’m just not sure what I’m looking for. Actually I feel more lost than anything. Haven’t quite figured out what my purpose in life is. Guess that means I’ve wasted a whole lot of time not fulfilling a purpose I have yet to discover. I wish there really was an easy button, so it could just tell me my purpose. I don’t like this feeling of nothingness.

  1. I suppose a feeling of nothingness can be awfully depressing. At the same time, I know a lot of people who spend their entire lives ‘searching’ and they don’t seem to find anything. I guess it’s like that Wizard of Oz quote where everything is really in your own backyard, or something like that.

    • It is depressing and I feel like I will be one to search my whole life only to come up empty handed. I would hope that won’t be the case but time will tell, I guess.

  2. You never know, may be you are already there really close. So, never give up.
    Also, why don’t you think that you are doing your purpose all the while fighting your inner demons.
    Indian philosophy works well here.. just give in your best not thinking about the result. You never know what the actual result is supposed to be.
    Heyy. . By the way, no one really knows the actual purpose of their life. Ppl just think they do.. but really, who knows what’s the truth.

    • Thank you for that. I guess I didn’t really think about it like that. I’m just extremely hard on myself and I don’t feel like anything I do is ever good enough. Maybe my expectations of me are unrealistic.

    We are our own worst enemies. I think the key is to just try to live life and it will come to you when the time is right. Everyone is a little lost at different times of their lives. And sometimes the harder you try to figure it out, the tougher it is.

    • I definitely get that. It’s like when you’re in a hurry, you hit every red light. And that’s what I’m feeling I guess. Just haven’t come across too many green lights. Thank you for your words of encouragement.

  4. While some people appear to float through life with a happy cluelessness, like you, I really wanted/needed for my life to make sense. Part of that is to know my “purpose.” I suffered over this for many years until it dawned on me (slowly and over time) that a person’s purpose can’t be impossible to know, as if life is a giant hide and seek game and only those who “find” “win.” And I have experienced that every person has something to contribute to life. So I landed at this…we’re all here to love and be loved. Love works. Sometimes I need to really put the love out there (almost to the point of feeling depleted) and sometimes I need to be loved intensely (like when I was very ill) but most of the time I’m dancing between the two.

    Thank you for showing me kindness and following my blog. Thanks for sharing the love. I like your blog and your voice that I hear through it. I’m rooting for you, that you can find peace and rest, because the world needs you and your one-of-a-kind love 🙂

    PS…belated happy birthday. Wishing you the best year of your life ❤

    • Wow!! I’m, I’m speechless. That really means a lot to me. I have been searching for purpose for what seems like an eternity and have not had any luck. Felt like I was just wasting time because it doesn’t exist. I guess now, I’m just so lost that I am trying to find my way back. I thank you for your thoughtful words. You are too kind. It is a pleasure to follow your blog and I look forward to reading much more. At the same time I would like to also thank you for the belated birthday wishes, following, reading and commenting. I appreciate you very much. 💐

      • You’re welcome and thank you very much! Clearly you are a very loving person, perhaps just not getting the proper feedback to let you know how much your love means to the world 🙂 And I get what you are saying, it is easy to feel lost in this crazy and frantic world. But that’s more about the world, than it is about you. The world will be what it is but love is bigger, better, and more fulfilling than we can even imagine ❤ Glad we’ve connected! Happy Tuesday 🙂
