It might seem like everyone, but you, have things figured out. Everyone’s life seems to be perfect, but yours is falling apart. The truth is, people only show you what they want you to see. And you can’t compare your bad days to someone else’s good days.
Social media isn’t doing you any favours either. People tend to compare themselves to others they have never even met. Take a good look at your social media feed. What do you see? Your feed (and theirs) is a highlight reel of your life. People might look at you and think you’ve got it all together. We’re all human. We all have struggles. So stop comparing yourself to others and start living a life of purpose.
Self-Discovery and Finding Your Purpose
The moment you realise that no one has life all figured out you’re taking a step in the right direction, towards self-discovery. Here are some questions you can ask to help find your purpose in life.
What Drives You?
What form of unhappiness or injustice did you witness and don’t want to live with? Has anything touched you on such a deep level that it drives you to make the world a better place?
What Energises You?
Does it give your life purpose to help homeless people find their way? Or do you get hyped up by helping drug abusers clean up their act? If you pursue your life purpose in the wrong way, it can burn you out.
What Are You Willing to Sacrifice?
Is it people with mental health issues or children without parents? Perhaps you feel strongly about helping the elderly. Whatever it is, if you’re willing to sacrifice your time for it, you’ve found your purpose.
Finding your purpose might take some time and effort on your behalf. But you don’t have to do it on your own.
