My purpose in life is to listen. To listen to people’s struggles and hear them when no one else will, or even when others listen too. My purpose is to find strengths in people and show them their own brilliance. My purpose is to help others find purpose. My purpose is to see people for what hey are, and also who they could be.
My other purpose is to love my future family. To be a devoted wife and raise wonderful kids.
These things don’t make life pleasant. Sometimes I make poor decision in favor of purpose, like talking to Chris even when I treat im horribly and he’s a poison on my life. But purpose gives me a reason to live.
I was thinking about feeling empty when I’m not in a relationship. It’s as if I’m holding out my hands to grasp something that isn’t there, so I have nothing (I repeat this to myself often. I have nothing. I have no one. I am nothing. I am no one). But now I feel as if I’m holding my future master’s degree in my hands. I feel comforted by that. Because my purpose and my love for it will always be there with me, even if no one else is.
What’s your purpose, if you’ve found it?
