I think our life is too short to good things for the society and other people. So, we should not waste our day with meaning less work or thought. I mean other than our regular job and after giving time to our family we can do a lot for our society. Through our day today life also we can do good things a lot. Like earning some good habit in your life you can help saving our earth from polution or global warming. There are so much thing to be done in this world. If we think about other people or the society there will be no terrorism and no war in this world.

yep. i am just a simple, ordinary person. but i can help in the society and environment on my own little ways. atleast not litter around or vandalize and such. plant trees and flowers, etc. plus be polite to those around us especially the elders. show respect to people. stuffs like these seems to be so little. but if we all do these little things, it will give a great impact for change.

yes, we can do so much for this world. each little thing that we do matters so much. there is so much repercussions that a tree we plant can have. when we observe ways to control pollution and contamination of the world we are in, we are being of service to our fellowmen, too.

whenever i get across with questions like this, i get puzzled. it's so difficult to really know my purpose in life. well, i guess i am here because i will soon have my own family, be a good wife to my beloved husband and be a great mom to my kids. take care of my parents especially when they are old. most parents are just left abandoned by their selfish children and i don't want that to happen to them. be there for my siblings when they need me and even at times when they really don't. my main purpose in life is to share my love and life to people i care about. to people i love the most... and even to those i don't really know of.

I would like to improve daily, even if all odds are against me, I do not want to become bitter or twisted, however much people have hurt me, I would like to leave this earth with a pure and clean heart, like the one God gave me when I was born. I want to tread this earth having given the maximum I could within my limited capability. If I have ever hurt any one I ask God to give me a way to make it up, either to those people, or to give to others that really need something. I would like just to be the best of me there is, to fulfill my full potential and be a good wife, mother, daughter and friend. I hop never to betray any one and in my business dealings be true and honest.

This is one of those questions I have asked myself on those dark and lonely nights when everything seems to difficult to cope with. What exactly is the purpose? Then I look at the things I have achieved, like giving birth to my son, being able to live in the world in freedom, seeing all the good things of nature, music, all the little things that, when you add them all together, make such a difference to your life. My purpose now is to go on and try to make a difference to other people's lives

tough one there. even i cant figure out yet whats my real purpose in life. ive been thinking about this too from time to time and yet i cant find concrete or satisfying answers. as for now, im thinking that im here to do something good or great and lasting, not just for myself but for others too. in that way, i can make myself happy and make others happy too. i can dedicate my life doing things that i do best for everybody's good and as a contribution for the betterment of the society. i try to live my life for others, after all, im not the only person here in this world. make myself happy and make others happy, thats what im here for

The main purpose of our lives is to glorify and worship GOD. To reveal other purposes in your life, please read the book Purpose-Driven Life.

I think to me what is most important here is to do good on earth and qualify to reach heaven one day. At the same time I wish to be successful in all angles in life.

the religious will always have a good answer for you, romel. we are here on earth to serve God's purpose. God created us because he loves us and thus, we have to love him in return. we show our love for God by doing all that he has laid down for us, in terms of His rules and laws for us to abide in, obey and do.
