My Goal in life - June 9th 2012, 06:24 PM

I don't have a proper goal, I don't feel like a need to be anything good in life, I just want to change something in this world whatever it may be, I just want to help people and make this place better. I don't care for money or a good job or anything close, I just want to be happy and free of cares to know that I am helping somebody out there. I could live in a ratty old cottage in the middle of nowhere for the rest of my life as long as I know I've helped make the world a better place. I don't know if this is odd, I don't care I just wanted to know if there's anybody else out there like me or what you think of this "Goal"

Agreed,

But yeah honestly I feel my own lasting happiness is independent of material, living situation or anything like that. There is no objectively right or wrong way to live your life, you define it's own meaning and spend your time whatever way you like, and then you shouldn't feel like you've wasted time at any point if you enjoy the way you spent it because ultimately there's no wrong answer or way to go about it. The most comforting feeling for me personally is that every single thing I do, or don't do, by simply being there has an immense impact on the world and it turns out that much differently based on my choices, due to a butterfly effect that spreads out to infinites of interactions between people.

Self pity will not rescue you.
Sometimes we have to save our own lives,
not because no one else cares, but because no one else can.

Life for you has been less than kind
So take a number, stand in line
We've all been sorry, we've all been hurt
But how we survive is what makes us who we are.

Dreamed up the maps, give me the charcoal and the paper
We invent paths they cannot see, and they're too scared to walk


Only after disaster can we be resurrected. It's only after you've lost everything that you are free to do anything.

I really, really like your "goal". : )
It shows that you don't really seem to care about what most our age probably want to attain in life: fame, money, etc. haha : P It's nice to know you wish to make the world a better place, such as by helping others out. Personally, I love helping others out too. : )
