Hi, I have been struggling to find my purpose in life for sometime now. I thought maybe this forum might help. Maybe give me some thoughts. It will be appreciated. Thank you.
To really answer your question, it really starts with interests, the more, the better. Interests lead to passion, then eventually purpose. For example, I was always interested in art and multimedia. Then I decided to be in graphics and media production. It worked well for me. I didn't find it as work, but fun.
What would help is if the purpose is deep and meaningful, but of course it is different for everyone. Here is a little short history. I always thought money will equal happiness, but once I was able to reached my goals financially, I still yearn for something meaningful. A big house and nice car isn't it all crack to be. You will still feel an emptiness. I felt very lonely in the house, so I decided to move to a small apartment in a populated city. I got involved in my community and made some close connections. Along the way I found some new friends. From the experience, I would say it is the relationship we create like friendship, trust, learning, and meaning. Since I am financially successful, I will try to help those who are less fortunate. Even actions like this helps my well-being.
I guess I have to figure out what my interests are.
Yeah, it does take awhile to find your interest and purpose if you don't know already. If you already know, it will save a lot of time and struggle. I was less fortunate to find it later in my life, though. I can say, as long as you are learning, then it will eventually leads to purpose . Right now, I have spiritual friends to fall back on. I am learning something everyday. Have a social circle, it will boost your understanding, meaning in life, and also meditation. For my case, it is connection.
