Today I told my son his purpose of life.
My son was very depressed and could not find any interest in his life. Unable to work, unable to earn money, unable to be happy, and totally discouraged and no interest to live.
So, I had to tell him that he has one primary purpose in his life.
And that is:
To be supportive and helpful to his brother and father (he already lost his mother and has no sisters) not with money but with love, feelings, caring words, and actions.
Next, to be helpful to his Elder-Father and his Elder-Mother (we call them like that only- his father’s brother and sister-in-law?).
To be helpful to his siblings (children of above).
To be helpful and supportive to his neighbors.
These are to be the actual purposes of the life of anybody, I believe.
It is not earning money, getting a respectable job, high status in the society, and enjoying yourself that should count.
The true purpose of anybody’s life is to be supportive and helpful to his people through caring words and activities. To his neighbors and the society around him.
Try to make the world a beautiful place for everybody living there in this world through mutual communications, affectionate feelings, and activities.
