Sometimes, I can’t help but think, that the sole purpose of a human being’s existence is to see how beautiful and ugly the world is – both at the same time.
What is the purpose of living anyway?
I’m pretty sure we’re not born in this world to just fall in love and die. Some doesn’t even have the chance to experience the former and lucky are we that have. Truth be told, there are nights that I think so much; I end up overthinking and questioning myself – what is my purpose? What am I here for?
Wala lang. Life has pretty been on the neutral side lately and it usually just revolves with work, gym, and home. O diba, may gym na. I’ve been wanting to join gym ever since and last year, I finally did. Yay, something new! With that, I can say na even though I’m not at my healthiest point, I’m at my fittest naman right now. I’m not underweight anymore – which is my main purpose of going – and I can really see some progress within me.
Anyway, work has always been the same. I’m happy na it’s less workload now compared before, as they employed and gave me colleagues who make work and the company bearable. I also feel happier and satisfied when they call and ask me to compose or edit emails for them kasi they can’t express what they want to say clearly and they trust me with that. Simple joys! They even asked me one time why don’t I just find a job related to writing and I answered I would be extremely happy if an opportunity like that would come.
Personally, I am okay. Just okay. There are bad days and there always will be, but I just learned how not to care about it anymore. The sun always shines the next day to give us another try.
Going back, I’d like to take this time to think out loud and contemplate about my purpose in life. Haha contemplate talaga ‘no? Currently – I’d like to say it as currently ’cause I know that it will change when I get older – I feel like my purpose is to support my family and make other people happy. Simple.
Feeling ko ‘yun ‘yung purpose ko in life talaga. To be a listener and be the best support of everyone. How can I say that? Because for me, a purpose should be something na when you’ve done or achieved it, you feel that sense of contentment and satisfaction in you. And every time I make people happy, I am happy.
Maybe some other people’s purpose is to keep the environment clean and green. O kaya naman to take care of animals. Or maybe to run the whole country. Deep or not too deep, they all serve as a purpose of why we are living. Purpose is what makes your life worth living.
