I think that a trickier question is 'why do people strive to find the meaning of life, instead of letting the meaning of life find them.' You aren't gonna find it, if you look.

Thanks Wolfness. Oddly enough, I was on another site and someone said this, and the above, my original post, was my thought in reaction. Found it ironic that I'd see this question so soon after!

I don't think life has a specific meaning. I think we're here, on Earth, to do our individual tasks. I think everyone's life has a different meaning. For some, it will be to fight for freedom. Others to help the poor. Others will go on to do amazing things. But someone's life meaning could be to raise a family and give their children the best life possible. So life on general has no meaning, but everyone's life has a different one... If that makes sense.
Bmac99
Right. I think asking "What is the meaning of your life" would be harder though becasue I have no idea what my purpose is yet...

I definately agree that everyone's life has a different purpose. It's just interesting to know what other people think about it. Maybe I should have asked, "What is the meaning of YOUR life?"

The meaning of life... What is "meaning"? Perspective. Perspective from the eye of the beholder, opinion. Perspective is simply looking at something through your own mind, as opinion, using only what YOU know, and what YOU believe. It the glass half full, is it half emtpy, or is it both?... Enough of all this thinking and crap! Imma go eat a friggin cookie!! X3

Okay, so this is my thoughts when I read your question and then Leigh07's answer; Well, I understand your way of thinking, Leigh, but here's what I think;D You musn't sit around and wait for your purpose in life to come. It'd be like wishing upon a star, and expecting it to come true without doing anything. I'm not saying that you have to waste your life away searching and looking for a purpose. I'm saying live your life to full potent, follow your heart, and think with your See More▼

It's all about what you make it. It could be to strive and be successful. It could be to have fun.

Either way, the world is a twisted game you can't beat, so why play it?

No one while ever know the true meaning of life or if there even is one so what is the point in questioning it. Decide for yourself what the meaning of life is. Do what makes you happy and at the same time help others be happy because if there is one thing we can be sure about its that we are all in the same boat in the world. We all question ourselves and the world around us and we all just want to be happy. Loving yourself and those around you despite flaws is the only way to See More▼
