We all long for purpose and to know what that is for our lives. How do you figure out what you were truly created to do?

you have to get to know yourself first, many of us do not know who we are or what we want in life, as long as we drift along like that or let others decide our futures for us we will never know.

I am still trying to figure out what my purpose is. To find out I guess we would have to go deep inside and find ourselves first and what we want in life and what makes us happy before we can find out what our purpose is. Some is to make others happy,helpful, and many more things. If I do have a purpose it is bringing people together.

Life isn't meant bout purposes...we usually think of that there should be purposes for us to be created. Well, your life is your life, what you want to do is your purposes...we often watch movies and the heroes and heroine have their purposes in life, saving the people, saving the earth some sort of things. They can choose either to save or not, so? The purposes are in your hand, you controlled it. It seems confusing when we trying to figure it out what actually we supposed to do in this vast world, i tell you, there isn't much we can do about, even superman can't rescue the people world wide...logic isn't it? Well, we can do what we manage to do, and do what we capable of, if what you doing makes you happy then it just might be what you really long for...I hope this helps you amcgowan01. Best Wishes and Good Luck!

I'm not really sure. Over half of my life is more than likely gone and I still do not know my purpose in this life.
