Do any of you feel as though you have a purpose in life? That you were put here to do something really important?

I’m not a religious person and I don’t really believe in fate. I think that we make our own lives how we want them to be and we have full control over that. I have a tattoo actually which reads the Shakespeare quote ‘It’s not in the stars to hold our destiny, but in ourselves‘ and that’s something I truly believe in.

But there’s also a part of me that thinks there is a purpose. Whether or not I decide to follow that purpose is up to me, but it’s there.


I might have been dealt a difficult hand, but I can do so much with my knowledge and experiences because of that.

All I’m saying – is watch this space.

    Snap ! This came up time and time again with different people in therapy and i think part of the reason why is that with mental health disease we question the very reason for our existence which naturally leads to ‘purpose’. I do believe, in a non spiritual way, that our true purpose in life is to find something of meaning to ‘us’ and contribute either big or small. My top line mantra is ‘leave the world a little better off for my existence during my tenure here’ !

    I can truly relate to your thoughts. I believe in God, but while He can support me, I have to follow my own path. It’s godo tha tyou believe you have full control over your life. I am still working on this.

    Well done! Intended or not that is a great piece of marketing for your blog….all the questions without answers, then, “watch this space”.
    I think the answers often come from the obvious places that usually we don’t want them to come from. We over complicate things!

    i would like to believe that we all have a purpose…im the last person to be called religious…but i want to believe that there is a purpose…if people go through extreme pain and if their life takes few turns too rough and patchy..then there must be a purpose..a reason… or maybe thats something i need to keep the hope up when im low…
