my purpose is to help the black male population gain as much wealth and power as possible. so that we can fix our own problems in our inner city communities in America...and eventually expand into Africa to capitalize on natural resources if there are any left from the European nations taking all of them.

I know what I'm gonna do until the day I die, career-wise. Make music and help others with their music. It's enough to keep me going and make ends meet. Other than that, I hope I will find the love of my life someday, and travel a lot.

I think that a lot of people in this thread confuse their purpose for what it is they'd like to do, and while I don't think that the two are mutually exclusive, I think it's hard to say you've really found your purpose until you're gone.

My life is very unfulfilling.

My purpose in life is to enjoy myself. Sadly, I'm not doing it correctly right now.

I'm sure God has some reason for keeping me here. I just haven't been told what that reason is - AND IT'S STARTING TO PISS ME OFF!!

It's unfortunate to see that a lot of people (and some people posting here) really believe that their "purpose in life" is to be born, suffer, then die without purpose or meaning. It is the way you are perceiving and defining "purpose in life" that's giving all these answers I'm seeing. A lot of people are thinking that their purpose in life is what they do (ex. getting their dream job, getting rich, etc, which are all nice goals don't get me wrong, go for them!) but I hope that someday you will realize in and take comfort that people are not the things they do, they are not their feelings, they are not what they say, because they are not a body. Sorry I know I feel like a wise ass but If you are looking for purpose or meaning in life in the outside world (which is subjective because everyone's perception is different and always changing, so how can it be truth or universal?) it's impossible to find it. The outside world can not offer you any purpose or meaning you are seeking; it is only within you.

It's like almost 12am and I haven't slept well at all and I don't think people may know wtf I just said because I'm just reiterating what I learned from being "a course in miracles" student. so sorry


Totes mgoats bruh

People shesh days, they confuse being useful to society to having a purpose in life.

ITS MY DREAM TO BE A BIG SPINNY COG, THAT SPINS AND IS COG SHAPED~


I don't really have a purpose other than enjoying the ride that is life as much as I can, even if I can't travel the world like I originally dreamed of.

after high school i dropped out of college after a week because i wasn't thinking straight. im twenty now. i worked for almost a year and have been living off the money i made. im never serious about my future, it always seems like a joke to me. im not motivated to progress. i turn 21 in three months and now am starting to seriously consider my options. video games and anime are really fun, but i just cant ignore the fact that i feel their is a higher calling for me, at least something more than just working general labor off and on and japanese entertainment.

an earlier poster mentioned how us young folks getting out of high school wanting to die is laughable. i agree whole heartedly. we want to quit the game before it even starts. it feels like there is nothing out there for us, but that simply is not true. the whole point to this life is discovering what you love and pursuing it to the bittersweet end. you have to go out into the world and find your passion. finding your passion is a lengthy difficult task. not something you can google. i am just realizing all of this.

i still havent made a solid decision but when november comes i am going to apply to college and if i get in i will give it my best shot this time. that is my goal for now, until then i will help out my mom and work, and maybe go on a few short trips. i dont know what ill do after college, but i know that whatever i am thinking at that time, i wll have this time to reflect back to and figure out what to do next just like right now. i know i want to find some one to be in an intimate relationship with and i am sure i will act on any given oppurtunity, thats my problem that i need to work on. i need to find that oppurtunity,because it will not just come to me.

it helps me realize this when i have a best friend who has the same interests as me and yet he is finishing up college and is in a 6 year relationship with his girlfriend and a job set up for him when he graduates. its a constant reminder that he is setting the bar for me and i am not meeting it.

i know i am just writing a bunch of stuff right now and its mostly for me to read to myself. i just woke up up in the middle of the night thinking about all this, i couldnt sleep so i thought i would watch some anime. who would guess i would find this post. this is my first post too. so to cap it off what i have to say is that i know i am passionate about video games and anime and i activly pursue that passion. i also still feel that there is more for me, and i wont find it if i dont try. finding your purpose is the same as finding your passion, you have to give yourself the oppurtunity to discover it.
