    What do you believe is the purpose of life? Specially, the purpose of your life?

    Probably an overused one, but I really think mine is to help people, both in my career and personal life. I really want to raise a family, either biologically or adopt/foster and help to raise an educated, kind, and accepting next generation. I want to keep learning and better myself as much as possible, but also make sure I am happy and experience life

    Me too! I think it's really important to get the balance between helping others and looking after yourself too. Do you find you get that balance? I think I'm getting better at it but need to remember to still

    You definitely seem to be fulfilling that purpose, do you feel like you are?

    So only a little bit of punching? :mmm:

    But seriously, agreed, as long as you're not hurting others and are happy

    I used to struggle with it but I can say no if I need to look after myself.

    To use a quote from The Sound of Music: in my case, I feel my purpose in life/here on earth is "to find out what is the will of God and to do it wholeheartedly" :jebus:

    Unfortunately much of the time, I have no idea what God wants of me :erm: So I just try to take every opportunity to be kind and good to others, and to help people feel better about themselves. I do believe that God asked me to look after someone many years ago, and I did everything possible to do so. I think I did a good job of looking after that person in that time/place/space

    One of the most popular Roman Catholic saints, St Therese of Lisieux, said of herself that she was not destined to do big things for God, but rather to scatter flowers before Him and do little acts of kindness. I quite like that image, and feel it is true for me too

    To be happy, experience new things and make an impact in the world however small or large. The idea of living a life in a dull, English town, working 9-5 and going to Spain every year on holiday is my idea of a nightmare. So, for me, it would be living a stress free life, seeing as much of the world I possibly can, working for a NGO or having a career in politics etc. I also want to feel like I'm part of an international community - rather than being closed off in a town or small village - which is probably why I'd love living in a multicultural city like London or NYC, where there's much to see and do. I also love learning and I feel living a life of ignorance is a waste, so I want to keep expanding my knowledge as much as possible.
