From my experience, one will have difficulties to find a „purpose“ in life if they haven't found themselves yet. What do I mean by that?I think the first thing we need to do is to get to know ourself, and I mean really know.
I put together a small list of steps that could help you on your journey to find your “purpose”.
1st Step – Find time for yourself. Talk to yourself. Don't be afraid to be alone with yourself. Find out all your Good and ´Bad´ habits. This may take time, and that is Okay, take as much time as you need.
2nd Step - ‘Own it!’ Accept who you are, with all the good and bad habits, make them all yours, learn to love them, All of them. These habits,these personal characteristics are what makes you ‘You’. No one is perfect in everyone's eyes, everyone has a different perspective of ‘perfect’. We are all perfect in our own way.
3rd Step – Once you truly accept yourself, learn to Love yourself, all of it. Look at yourself in the mirror and talk to yourself like you are your best friend, like you are your lover. Love and appreciate every piece of yourself, physical and mental. This might be difficult and no one expects you to do it all in one day, but I promise you will absolutely love the feeling of freedom. Freedom from others judgment, freedom from others opinions, freedom from You judging or criticizing yourself. You'll feel ‘Whole’. You will find inner peace and balance.
4th Step – Now that you are true to yourself, that you know yourself, accept and love yourself the way you are, you can focus on what you are passionate about. You could be passionate about multiple things, just go and try them all, enjoy the feeling doing something that brings you joy. Sometimes we go back to our childhood hobbies, or we found out some new things that we are passionate about throughout life. Once you find out what you are passionate about, what makes you truly happy, you will find your purpose.
Nevertheless enjoy the journey.
I hope this will help some of you to find what you are looking for, and find your true self that is worth every piece of your love.
