That same question runs through my mind often.
Are we here to eat, sleep, wake up, “catch feelings,” party, work a 9-5 job, get married and have kids, then die?
I feel life is more than that. Each one of us was created with a definite purpose and we owe a responsibility to ourselves to live that purpose. I think our existence is for a reason; maybe we were created to cause a change or do something that has never been done.
Sadly, sometimes we do not see life that way; many of us have a thousand and one excuses for unfavorable circumstances around us. This life was given to us because we are strong to live it, irrespective of what we face or where we find ourselves. But come to think of it: Have you ever questioned your existence when things are going well? Apparently, the answer is No. We are forced to consider our reason for existing particularly when everything is going wrong. Instead of resigning to fate why can’t we think of how to use adversity to grow and make things better around us?
Albert Einstein was once asked: WHY WE ARE HERE? He pressed that if the universe were an accident, then we are an accident. That question can be answered by you and only you alone can give answer to that. Always think about what gives you life, makes you happy and you enjoy the rest of your life doing. Maybe that is the vacuum you were meant to fill. If you don’t know why you are here, you will keep doing what you are doing and keep running round circles.
