I think we are here in this life to concentrate and master what are experiencing NOW. Looking at the future is the wrong way to do life. Everything we need to work on is right here and now and you already know in your heart what issues you should be addressing.
I agree 100% on knowing in my heart what I need to work on.
That's my depression. I said I know my struggles...I just can't f'ing do it. I'm trying... My frustration lies in the not knowing the real purpose of this life. I want a guide book, you know? No one has told me why I'm here.
It pisses me off.
What am I doing here? I'm trying to grow.
What are you doing here? I'd like to know. Just passing the time?
I can be the best I can be. I feel I've been doing that. I could always be better, for sure. But I do what I can. I just don't see the purpose to any of it. It all ends the same. I'll work my whole life, raise my kid, make some money...and die. And so will everyone I know and love.
I'm depressed, it's clear...I shouldn't spread this crap. I'm sorry.

What is accomplishment in this life? What matters when faced with the ending?
I'd offer the only thing that matters is consciousness.
Have you spent some time to know yourself and another consciousness?
Did you attempt to make them happy?
If yes, then you're fine.
People tend to add unnecessary complexity. Why worry about the perceptions of conscious beings just as lost as they are... or of a conjectured other that judges everything?
Not everyone can go down in history as a savior of humanity. We'd run out of public space for busts.
