I know that title is very broad and incites many different feelings from people. Its not something i have ever thought about too much, until the last year. I went through a lot of ups and downs in the past year, more downs than ups, and it has changed the way I think.
Lately I find myself looking at society, and seeing how the majority of people live by a certain plan. Go to school, get good grades, go to college or university, then go get a job. Meet someone, get a house, get married, have kids. There must be more to life. I knew someone who died in the terror attack in Tunisia. He had recently retired, after working hard all his days, only to be gunned down on a beach. So working for 50 years meant nothing. Is this all there is to life?
We work, then die. Then nothing. So what is the actual purpose of our lives? I cant help feel an emptiness lately, something is missing, and I dont know what it is. I have followed lifes plan, i have the job, the house, the wife. Kids are next on the agenda...then what? I find it hard to motivate myself to live through this cycle. Anyone else feel the same?
