I feel as though I am meant to be alone in this world.
I am not sad or pitiful that I am, its just that, I don’t know why I exist. What is my purpose in life? I know I help many and put them before myself, but why is my purpose in life for me and me alone? I feel as though….if I don’t know my purpose…then my existence is futile. That something as useless as me, doesn’t deserve to continue to exist without a purpose or meaning. Can you help me?

dont you just love mr helpbot. I know how your feeling dont really have anything helpful to say. People always tell me that, I may not know my purpose but I do have one. Not sure if I believe it really but sometimes its nice to hear I guess
i don’t think you’re going to find a single answer… you exist for so many reasons.
I am seen no more as a puppet for people to use. I am tired of being manipulated by the people I used to could trust the most. If life is full of this much malice and loniness for me, then I do not need to continue my existence. The only purpose I serve is to be used and that is a real purpose.
You seem intelligent enough, so I’m sure you have the mental capacity to overcome your so-called “toolishness” or easy manipulability.
Just work on your will power.
Hi, I also don’t understand my existence. Everyday I wonder why the hell I’m on this planet? Why the hell I’m here? I can’t ever figure it out. And sometimes I get to the point where it seems like utter hopelessness. Sometimes I dont know what to do. I feel useless and unappreciated. If anything helps, just know you aren’t alone. I constantly feel this way. I thought it would go away, but it hasn’t. And so far, I’m just stuck, in this place. Wondering. And I hate it. Constant worry. Don’t feel alone.
Quite happily the question of the purpose of our existence will probably never actually be answered with real certainty. Personally I don’t really want to know what the my part in the bigger picture is. But if your tired of being a tool then stop being one. Someone tried to use you, shut them down. Sounds a bit simple I know.
Not knowing your purpose shouldn’t be a curse or a fact that makes you feel inadequate. If anything it simply means you can define yourself and your own purpose. Be who and what you want to be.
We all wonder about that sometimes. But if we knew what else would there be to discover. I believe that once you know what your real purpose is you have completed your journey.
So travel and enjoy.
everyone wonders what their purpose is, and honestly I dont think anyone has one. I think that everyone has common goals though, and those are to find out what to do with their life, which has no real answer, you should just find what you like to do, or what you think would best benifit you and/or those around you that you deem precious. NO ONE is ever truly alone, they only think so because for what ever reasons they’re too afraid to reach out for help, maybe they’re just afraid to get hurt. But you shouldnt think youre alone, because you posted this for a reason, you wanted help, pure and simple, you obviously dont want to give up if your still searching for help.
I’ve had that same feeling, of being useless, or feeling worthless, and this is generly brought on(at least in my case,I dont know about yours)by others telling you so either by there words or there actions, and if thats the case why not do what I’m doing, and make proving them wrong your purpose in life?
well Im really sorry you feel like you should be alone, but you’re not we’re all here for you, and if you ever need to get something else off your chest just give me a shout and i’ll listen, sometimes thats all you need
yeah sometimes I ask myself the same thing.you need some alone time to think about who you are. Just to find out more about yourself. ask your self really hard personal questions and answer them truthfully. really think about it
Please do not give up. You DO have a purpose and you are so loved. There is a GREAT plan for your life. Just stop trying to please others (being ’some-one else’) and start being YOURSELF (who God made you to be). I will pray for you. Ps 139 in the Bible says that YOU were fearfully and wonderfully made by the Creator of ALL things. Go ahead - try to wrap your mind around that!
i know exactly how you feel. i even typed that query into google to see if anyone had an answer. but people can’t really help. it’s not like the movies where someone says something profound and it moves you enough to put you on track to a happy ending.
i have been asking people to help my find my purpose for years and now i think i am just annoying people even though they TRY and help. i have tried every sort of job, relationship and lifestyle and still come out not feeling right. none of my skills seem to merge with any of my other skills and i know i am very useful but can never find the right industry or job to be helpful in.
people seem to speed off in front of me with their life making sense for them and all the pieces falling slowly together in their lives and mine is always scattered and pointless.
so i know what you mean. and like everyone else i have no answer. i wish i was greedy, then i could make a million dollars. i know how, but i just dont want to. i wish i was a dickhead, so i could benefit from others misery, i know how to do that too, but i choose not to. and because i am not a selfish and hurtful person, i suffer. life is hard for people who care about one another. life is set up so that people who shut up, go to work and slowly wreck the environment, step over others, avoid helping etc make a good living and have families and basically skip being challenged.
i guess that is why that jesus guy had such a hard time. cos he was a good person and life just likes to make good people suffer. but i guess on the other hand, people will see or remember you as a good person and i guess that is meant to be a good thing.
like now, i have no money and i got offered a job in something that doesn’t fulfill me for heaps of cash. i turned it down because i saw that there were people needed for volunteer work, so i am doing that instead. i don’t know how i will pay rent or food, but i feel better for helping rather than getting the money. i guess i’ll suffer on rent day, so i wonder if it is worth it.
i dont know how to help you, i am also searching. if you have money, then finding your purpose is an option. if you don’t then i guess people work any job and forget to bother looking for their purpose cos looking doesn’t pay the bills.
maybe searching for our purpose is a luxury ?????
I think that you and I are in the boat. Ecept I have been wondering that for about 3 years. I: have tried to commoit suicide, thinking that if God wanted dead, than I would be able to do it. And obviously he wants me here for something. And I think that if you are still here, than you are meant to be here on Earth. Everybody has a soul purpose. Wether it is guiding people, or changing people into someone a bit better. I say use your God given gift, and help people. Wether it be emotionally, mentally, or phisically. You seem very kind. And so am I. So use your strengths. And do not dwell on the negatives. Because everybody has more positives than negatives. So may God be with you on your journey called life. I hope this helps you. God Bless:)
Yeah that helps. It is good to know that there are other nice people around.
I am going to become a teacher and then see where that takes me. People need more guidance than they get at school and i think that if i can help one kid then that’d all be worth it.
what are your skills. what are you going to do?
Thanks for the reply again, and thanks for your encouragement.
Hi, I myself don’t fully understand my purpose in this life. It seems the more I try to understand the world and the people around me the more lost I actually get. I am more alone in my life then I have ever been. I have people around manipulating me, and the thing is I can put a stop to it but don’t. I feel that I deserve the pain and torture that my soul goes threw. I hurt alot of people when I was younger with no thoughts as to what they felt. When is my retribution going to be threw. I have been paying for them for years now. I have been cheated on, lied to, and used more times then I can recall. Am I damned to this lonely life of heartache and pain. Will my purpose for this life ever become clear. How long must I suffer.
I feel the exact same way… no matter how hard or how successful I am at camouflaging my insecurities or, on a more personal level, my total worth as a member of society–no one appreciates me. My mother is the only one who I feel truly cares if I succeed or fail, if I live or die. it sounds pathetic–and all the more cliche–but it’s how I feel. This coming from a popular kid with many friends and a very loving family, it seems crazy to feel unloved and under-appreciated. I FEEL-etched in my core–that I’ve forced and intimidated everyone who “likes” me into doing so. At what point do I give up trying to MATTER to others? I shouldn’t care at all, and I know that. I hate caring so much– I cant help myself. I want to now why I’m here, why I’ve been chosen to experience such adversity . Is it all a part of god’s will? Or is my invaluableness simply s part of nature, or nurture? I feel alone… lost in a world of ever so pressing decisions. How do I know what will lead me to success-or even better, contentment. :-/ How do I stop caring so much about everything? help… I’m dying here.
I feel my life is given to me for some reason. But when i doing some ugly things like watching sexy suck things I feel i am a foolish and useless girl. I feel that I am cheat to my parents and to my lovely boy friend.
I love my boy friend a lot. I think he is a gift that god gives me.
I am feeling like this at this very moment. I also googled this question, God am I meant to be alone in life. Seriously, I am 30 and since I was a child I feel like every close friend I had left me. And when i reflect on it its true. Best friend moved away in 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. The one in 5th grade really hurt but I never talked to anyone about it. I dont know if this is why i cant maintain relationships. Ive never been in a relationship with a man though I have dated, that is odd at my age. And now my best friend moved away to new york, one to houston, and another to atlanta. What gives God??? The man ive been involved with for almost 2 years is going nowhere and i just broke it off with him for the millionth time today. I have no close friends, no one calls me, invites me out, i dont feel loved. and i always end up at this point and so i wonder now, am i meant to be alone in this life? do i give up trying to find happiness and love with others? idk…
