    For the last few years, Ive been wondering my own purpose. I use to be a cheery happy kid, but now, Im 17 years old, my perspective on life has changed completely. I always wonder why am I still around? I dont feel as if I have a purpose and probably never had. This all started as I got older, since I was born with a unique disease...My purpose I thought..Was to grow, thrive and be happy, have a family, fall in love etc. But now, Because of everything mainly including my disease I do have, just seems pointless to me. Because more than likely it will never happen to me now Im just lost, confused and wondering what I should do with the rest of my seemingly pointless life.

    Hi Forgotten Case, and welcome...finding meaning in one's life is such a daunting task...I easily become overwhelmed trying to take it on so I have taken smaller steps, like what is meant for me today...hope you find good company here which can also serve to enhance your life...welcome again

    Yeah....I don't think I have a purpose in life. But I think that you have a lot of purpose. You are still young and have so much potential. I don't think your life is pointless at all. I'm glad you did reach out and hopefully we can help you.

    Finding one's purpose is hard and it does take time. A lot of people tend to drift through life not knowing what their purpose is. One day you will find your purpose. In the mean time, I think Sadeyes is absolutely right. Try taking small steps first and taking it one day at a time. Maybe you could set yourself a small goal like trying to spend five to ten minutes each day thinking of all the things you have to be grateful for. :)
