Purpose of life...

Often I think about my life and the way it's been till now and I find that I still don't know my purpose in this life. Yes, there have been times when I'd thought that I'd found the purpose of my life but situations changed in such a way that I realized that nope, that wasn't my purpose in this life. My question to you people is, have you found your purpose in this life, how and when did you find it and did it change your life in good/bad way? Please share your views..

Our purpose in life is to live our life to the best of our ability but being frail humans we do not learn that till we have really made a mess of things. It's up to our parents in the first place to instil in us all we need to know to have a good life but this rarely happens because our parent's parents were flawed.

Hi MsTickle, I totally agree with you, when two people marry just for the sake of marriage, they don't realize their responsibilities towards their children and that's why most of the problems are there in this world. As a child if we are not taught the importance of attitude and to decide our priorities, then only we end of messing things in our life.

It is not easy to know the purpose of your life if you have not taken the time to think of it. Just get a piece of paper and a pen, write down a list of things you want to achieve in your life. Write down the amount of time you want to achieve these things and check which one you are going to start with.

Hi babyeve, Thanks for your response, are you saying that achieving things in our life could be the purpose of our life or it's much more broader than that?

Yes our achievements are the things we need to know the purpose in life.
