what is for you the meaning of life? when was the time you started to wonder what is the meaning of life. for me when i was a kid i often think what is the meaning of life. why so much disappointments, sufferings, failures etc. in life. I began to wonder about our purpose in life.though i know life has a purpose i don't know what's that purpose.it was my aim to know my purpose in life.i think i went through so many things growing up. those problems made me realize of the real meaning of life all about.

I thought I am gonna hit rock bottom - I almost did but that's when I start wondering about my life. Whta's my purpose? What am I doing here? But I can't figure it out. Believe it or not, I even consulted some of the Tarot Card readers since some of my friends said that they can be of help - but I left in their place unsatisfied and empty. Then, I read somewhere that if you want to know the success rating of your life, at least double your failure. I did but only to find out that I am the only one who suffered the most. It was really funny when I think of it now since all are in the past. And I haven't found the meaning of my life yet. I am still on search. But I learned one thing. To live your life to the fullest and the way you want it to be. You should be the captain of your life and hopefully along the way, I may find the purpose that I have been looking for. Good luck to us who's in search of their life's purpose.

that's true we should live life to the fullest. one thing i learned in life in my search for the meaning of life, is that i should stop searching for it . I can find the meaning of life even at my home.i just have to open my eyes to the truths i already know before but failed to realize them a what I have been looking for all along.that truth is God is always with me.and etc. but it won't change my situation over night but give it time it would change things for the better.but that's my belief.we are all entitled to our own belief.

My life, has purpose, the working part of it, what a mess. Since 1998, I've had difficulty working, finding work, getting work. I'm married to a great guy, have more than one cat now (only wanted one, but people took off and left a cat, what can you do?). I help my family and my family helps me. I thought my purpose in life was teaching and I did that for over 10 years. But that didn't work out. So my purpose in my family is to help out when I can and they help us out when they can. My purpose in marriage is basically the same. Now I need a job like that and I thought I had that, but that isn't working either.

i also spend a lot of time thinking about the meaning of life... i guess there is no universal answer to that... probably one of the meaning of life is the search for a meaning itself... and obviously to love and to be loved... But to find the ultimate meaning is a task that everyone should do, and everyone should find his own not definitive answer.

I wish to believe there is purpose for all of us for us to know or discover.

I think the meaning of life is hope. Though there are so many hardships such as sufferings, failures, disappointments, you will always hope for something good such as we would like to lead our parents and kids to a happy life through our struggle,we want to be a somebody in a certain field.With these hopes no matter how hard it is, I will keep on going.

I think I am struggling to know the meaning of life. But I have something about life in my mind. I think life is the name of to facing sorrow, happiness and also struggling for success. It is the life. And the person who never afraid to these things and always take this normal. Then one day their all sorrow must be destroyed and he/she get success and happiness in life.
