It's a very complex situation. And I feel a lot of times the same. But right know I'm focusing on "my purpose" as something egotistical that allows to focus in me. I'm feeling that my purpose is teaching, but not for the students, but for me. Once I got that rolling I will wonder for what's next. My purpose right know is to encourage myself to teach something
I would say all of the above. For me purpose is related to what type of life will make me complete, healthy, full of meaning, loved and loving, achieving my potential and living without regrets knowing that I did everything to the best of my abilities
Your purpose does not necessarily have to do with what others need from you. It’s not what others expect from you, it’s who you are deep down. It’s who you are without the outside world having a huge influence on you. I’ve begun my own journey towards finding that out, and there is a really great book that could help you with that. I’m still in the beginning of it, but I have learned also through meditation and listening to myself. The book is called Who Are You Meant to Be? By Anne and Heather Dranitsaris. I would highly recommend it.
