It’s true, the reason you are living is that you were meant to be here. If you have never felt despair on an extreme level, you may not be familiar with what I’m talking about. However, there is some that question their existence and I am here to inform them through this week’s quote that their life has a purpose and their existence was not by accident.
Events can happen in our life that can make us question why we exist. It’s different for each of us. Who can judge any of our reasoning and the extent of how it made us feel, no one. In rock bottom moments it can be hard to look forward towards hope. Everything may just seem like a meaningless mess. Surviving any type of trauma, abuse, neglect, or painful situation is a reason to believe in hope. These types of experiences cause us to react. A natural reflex is to feel sorry or anger. It’s perfectly normal to feel that way. It just means you are human. Yet, there is a challenge for each of us if we choose to take it.
Things that have happened to you in your life that have caused you pain, do not define you. You are not your trauma. The challenge is to separate yourself from the painful events. To see yourself as worthy and valuable. I’m not saying it will be simple to do, but it is worth doing. It was meant for you to survive because your existence was meant for more than the trauma you experienced.
Gaining perspective takes time to sort out all the pieces. Don’t rush the process. It may even involve someone who specializes in mental health to help. The process can take you down the path of questioning who you are and your purpose. These are important questions you will want to address. Addressing them will take you deeper into yourself to discover your truths. Enjoy this time, it is meaningful in so many ways. Your perspective will develop as you heal and learn about yourself.
Understanding who you are may be visited more than once in life. It is that quiet question that helps each of us re-focus when the distractions of life overcrowd our vision. When we experience trauma or pain in life, it’s doesn’t always go away when the trauma or pain has ended. It can sometimes resurface through triggers we may or may know exist for us. During these times it is acceptable to re-gain perspective. Keep in mind the pain or harm thrown at you doesn’t have to be accepted or owned by you. The owners may have had their intentions to do harm, but you have your own intentions to succeed!
Live Your Purpose
Your purpose is a big deal. It’s a big deal for you mostly because it is what gives your life meaning. That’s why so many people feel troubled when they don’t know what their purpose is. If you truly are confused about your purpose connect with what’s in your heart. Your heart holds the key, your passion. You connect with your passion by doing it. This takes willpower on your part.
Daily work with your passion equals fulfillment. Yes, it takes you putting it on your schedule and doing it. Not driven by the promise of riches or because someone else told you but, because of what you feel when you do it. If what you do every day does not make you feel alive and contributing in a way you feel good about, it’s time to go back to formula. You are meant to live your purpose.
Your contribution to the whole of existence is certainly worthwhile to experience. What you make of the time you have is up to you. To be your best self is tied to a commitment of valuing who you are. Doing this will enable you to live your purpose which is what you are meant to do!
