You Have A Purpose

You have a purpose, your life has meaning even if it doesn’t feel like it right now, even if you’re feeling stuck. You have a purpose. You are supposed to be here, so don’t give up, don’t quit yet.

It’s okay not to know what you’re doing with your life, it’s okay to feel lost and alone because in the loneliness you feel know that you aren’t alone. Know that while you’re staring at the ceiling at 4 AM that you’re not the only one who is awake wondering what they did to deserve this. You’re not the only one who is questioning your purpose, your life, your meaning. You aren’t alone in any of it. Even the people who appear to have it together the most have felt inadequate, have questioned their life and their purpose.

Everyone has moments of weakness, moments where they wish it would all end and just be silent for a while, but the truth is that feeling will pass. That feeling won’t stay there forever, even if it feels like you’ve got a black cloud hanging over your head know it won’t be there forever. Know it will clear up.

The truth is it’s good to question things. It’s good to question your life and your purpose because it means you want more out of life. It’s a step in the right direction.

You matter, you are enough, you have a purpose. You might not know your purpose yet but don’t give up before you figure it out. You never know what greatness life has in store for you, you never know what accomplishments are still to come for you.

Just because things haven’t been going well for you right now at this time in your life doesn’t mean it will always be this way. Things won’t always be this way, things will get better, things will change and wounds will heal, maybe not completely, maybe the scars will always be there, but the gaping wound will heal to a certain extent.

But don’t underestimate your purpose, don’t underestimate yourself because you still have so much life left in you and so many wonderful words and thoughts that the world needs to experience. Don’t let the world dull you and make you feel like you don’t deserve a shot to shine because you do.

You have a purpose and you should be here, you need to be here.

It’s okay if you don’t know what you’re doing with yourself and your life, it’s okay if you’ve messed up in your past because your past doesn’t define you and neither do your mistakes. You are so much more than the decisions you used to make. You can regain control of your life at any moment and if you don’t feel strong enough to do it on your own then reach out and ask for help. Ask for a hand because life isn’t meant to be lived alone and there are plenty of people who are willing to lend a hand.

I know you may be scared, but you have a purpose and you matter so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Believe in yourself with all you’ve got and you’ll prove to yourself just how much you truly matter in this world.

You’ve got so much ahead of you and better, brighter days. Don’t give up yet because you matter and you are enough, even if you’re questioning your purpose right now. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
