Searching For One’s Meaning
Life can become very difficult at times because we often question our purpose and direction in life. To obtain big positive results often feels like an eternity away; it happens so infrequently that we easily lose hope. So we continue to search for meaning by questioning our thoughts, decisions and desires. Some may even believe to have a fragile purpose and that nothing will ever change their course in life.
Your purpose in life can only be discovered within yourself. You may have people who know you very well and help guide you, but the answers lie within you. We may all feel like we have a fragile purpose at times: whatever path that we’re heading down feels like it can go wrong at any minute.
And that’s another problem with modern-day society: too much pressure and expectations is stressing us out and increasing our worries about tomorrow for no good reason. We have no control over what happens tomorrow. We have no control over what is going to happen in 10 minutes!
So why worry about tomorrow or your purpose if life relies on constant change? You’re better off working towards your goals while maintaining a positive outlook on life. There is nothing wrong with searching for meaning, but don’t allow the process to unnecessarily worry you.
We often feel like we have a fragile purpose because we don’t see the results that we want. We continue trying year after year, only to glance at our watches and realize that we are one week away from new year’s eve. “Great” we tell ourselves, “another year has gone and I still haven’t accomplished X, Y, and Z.”
And if you don’t accomplish X, Y, and Z next year as well, are you going to continue being miserable? That sounds like a terrible plan. Rather, just go with the flow by knowing what you want in life, believing that you will achieve it and remaining positive in the process. And keep your expectations low!
If you don’t accomplish your goals, then there’s nothing wrong with that. You can either tweak them, come up with new ones or keep pushing forward. Don’t allow your mind to become your enemy, making you believe that you have a fragile purpose. Enjoy the process of life by staying positive and believing that things will turn out better in the near future!
