So I was searching for what people had to say on the net about how they found their life "purpose" . I say " purpose" as I do not think life has any purpose other than itself, and that's one of the problems, but on the other hand I feel like I need to do some valuable stuff. Some people are lucky enough to have a "passion" (passion do not exists when performed for hours daily) from childhood or adolescense onwards . However I'd venture to say for most of us important questions arise at key times and crossroads are found a few times along the way . I came across this excellent article, and a lot of the stuff on the site is interesting: http://markmanson.net/life-purpose What are your views on these questions, how did you handle them yourself? Are they still alive ? Did you even have the opportunity to ponder them or did you have to work very early to earn decent wages? Are those who wonder about this dirty spoiled brats who have too much time on their hands ? Is it just a matter of picking something and sticking to it? Is it bout the inner drive you carry into what you do? Did you follow the path which was the most obvious and accepted by your environment? Was it smooth sailing or did you feel you had to take your life into your own hands and screw whoever thought ill of it? One thing which occurs to me is that to answer these questions , or even dare to ask them, one has to do stuff, one must not be motionless , this is a recipe for being depressed and adding heaps of unanswerable questions. Share your thoughts!
