    What am I meant to do?

    Wasn't really born with much talent, and I have been told I'm semi attractive online, but don't see it. I'm unsure on how to be positive and to change my mind to a "happy" person. I always binge eat (it's bad I know) and I've being doing it more than I should. I'm glad I'm not...

    Lost and Adrift In the Sea of Life

    At times I feel that my purpose in life is to help others see life from many aspects.  At other times I can't even get me to see why I exist.

    Want To Find My Life Purpose...

    My life isn't your typical life. I have a so-called "mental illness", maybe even more than one, as well as physical health problems. I spend my entire day at home for many reasons. I ask myself what my life purpose is. I believe in reincarnation, but why did I choose a life...

    What's My Purpose?

    I was always told my purpose was to be beaten for not being a boy. My purpose was to respect the "man" To serve him as he should be as a "king". To not scream, yell or shout And do as I was ordered To never tell what was going on To hide all of the cuts and scars To never give my...

    What Purpose?

    I'm not sure I have a purpose.  I always thought my purpose in life was to be a Mom, but that's not a likely scenerio for me unfortunately.  So, I work with children, but recently got laid off, so now i'm not sure I was even on the right path for me.  I know life...

    I Hate Going to Family Gatherings

    I feel lost. I feel lost

    and alone. I don’t know why I’m here. I have so many almost-talents, but the things that I was naturally good at as a kid got squashed or taken away or ignored by the people who should have been nurturing them or encouraging me…now it feels like it’s too late. I used to...

    I am feeling philosophical today.

    Who I am? Where I have been? Where I am going? Why am I here? What is my purpose? It’s an internal quest rather than an external detailing. My thoughts are muddied this morning. I have no guide marker on my quest for personal meaning. The quest itself defines me, but where...

    I Just Don't Get It

    I went through so many majors in college but not one stuck with me that I wanted to do it for the rest of my life or even would make a difference in someone else's life, they all felt like it was just to make the time go by...who wants that?
