Society teaches us that we have to follow a set of rules: get a job that makes a lot of money, have a family, have a lot of nice things, and to always put others before yourself. But what if you hate your job? What if you don’t necessarily want a family? What if you’ve put everyone else before you and now you have nothing? You end up feeling like you’re failing, you’re trying to live by the rules but can’t find any meaning to it. You’re going through the motions but not finding any happiness. You’re not happy because the only reason you’re doing these things is because you think you have to. This is when you need to ask yourself, “What do I want?”. Take note of daily things you have to do that you wish you didn’t. How can you change your life so you won’t have to do those things? What are your passions? Most importantly, how hard are you willing to work to create a a life with purpose?
Asking these questions led me to my purpose; to share my story on how I achieved better mental and physical health and to help others who are looking to do the same.
Have you found your purpose?
