    Anyone ever struggled to find purpose for their lives when circumstances weren't in in your favor? I've got support and a caring family, but somehow I'm convinced whatever task I'm meant to in the place I live is impossible. I'm here for some purpose. There has to be some purpose I'm meant to fill. I just need to know what... if any. icon_sad.gif

    Your purpose is to constantly seek answers to hard questions and look deeper into the hidden intentions of others. It's a blessing and a curse. Your best bet is to keep posting, or if that isn't enough, start a blog. And keep traveling and connecting with others. Also I think you'll meet someone who practically worships you and you'll have a lasting relationship.icon_smile.gif

    Keep seeking "the next right thing to do", and "the strength to do the next right thing".

    The rest will all work out. As long as you keep "waking up", you're "still in the game".

    Why does there have to be a purpose?

    Wouldn't you rather have a porpoise?

    I've seen the same issues since I started working here. My first instincts gear towards finding problems and giving people solutions they can learn to maintain on their own, but I feel that I can't find the right ways to that. So I've isolated myself and struggle to open up. I'm useless without a purpose. Down in the wind. I can't will changes for others by good will or heart alone. I just want to be able to show the people here they have the power to change their own communities. I don't know how the establishment will deal with change, but I only those living here can do it. I just want to help them see. Idk... idk... this is just burning in this void inside me.

    It's hard to offer advice without the details, which you may or may not want to put on the Internet. But if hugs help, I send a fresh batch attached to this message.

    This is me standing in a hallway. I don't know where to go, or what to expect next. I see people's habitual misery and can't think of any other solution other than love. But how do I show love to townspeople I don't know and encourage them to act with love towards themselves in turn?

    You just give of your heart...and that should be enough. If they respond in-kind, then it is an extra blessing. However, do not expect any certain kind of response lest disappointment be inevitable.

    This sounds batty but is making sense too. Anyone think I've lost my mind again? icon_confused.gif

    Happiness is not a destination, it's a journey.

    You may never find or complete your "purpose" in life, whatever it may be. But it's the road and challenges you face that make up life. We all go through them, though we all share them in different ways.

    Don't be jaded by thinking there is no meaning to your life. Just live your life to the best of your ability, that's all we can ask for.

    Why seek for a purpose when YOU are the purpose as to why life, family, friends, and even the posters on this topic give meaning!
