Do purpose and obligation go hand in hand?

Silvia Y.
I don’t think so. I think your true purpose is inherent andfor the good of yourself and others but an obligation can be placed on you and not always positive or for the better

Astrid E.
I feel that these two words are very different. I think a purpose is something you find – like a calling. Obligation is something you feel towards someone or something.
However, they may cross over if you find your purpose, And you naturally may feel obligated to fulfil that purpose – but I would say that it’s a conscious choice you make as to whether you want to pursue that purpose or not. And being content with making that choice because it’s one you made, rather than feeling as though you had to. That may be where happiness and contentment lies.
