I've been feeling "meh" for about 2-3 years now. I wouldn't really call it depression since some things did still bring me happiness. But I felt like something was missing. I tried the whole setting goals and achieving them. I achieved them. I felt happy temporarily, but I still felt "lost" in life. It seemed pointless to keep going on. I didn't have a purpose in life. Then I found http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2005/01/how-to-discover-your-life-purpose-in-about-20-minutes/ I thought it was BS at first, but then I actually tried it. It didn't take me 20 minutes, probably more like two hours. I didn't actually cry (it's very hard to make me cry), but I definately found an answer that created some great emotions inside of me. My final answer was: To find someone who I truly love To appreciate the beauty of nature and the beauty which humanity has created To create my own beauty in the world To love To laugh To be sad To experience pain To obtain a job which I would love to do everyday To be healthy I made sure to include negative things in there because without the negative, then the positives don't seem as good. Plus, I know I will never be able to fully avoid those things, so I have just accepted them. This answer really fits me well. I've never felt so "complete" as when I wrote that answer down. Maybe this can help out some of you here. It definately helped me. mod edit: underline = gone Thanks DE!
