In my experience with life, if you can’t figure out who you are, what life is all about or your purpose in it, life becomes so pointless. A chain reaction of destructive or self-destructive behavior can be triggered once a person decides that there is no point to life; trust me – I’ve been there! Depression, unruly behavior, drinking too much, and all the things teenagers do that keep their parents stressed and on the edge, are mostly related with this phase of trying to define ourselves, or understand the purpose of life with no success. Like I said before, I have been there. One thing I was also aware of is how clueless my parents were of what was going on. I was faced with an internal challenge I could not articulate. Every time things did not turn out the way I wanted them to, I always asked myself, “what is the point of life?” It dawned on me eventually that there must have been a good reason why I kept going back to the same question over and over and over again. So I figured that was a good question to get answered. They did not teach us anything about this at school and some of the “answers” I found elsewhere just felt far from the truth. So I decided to do my own research. It was not easy, but I am happy to say that I had quite a few life changing realizations along the way that I think you may find useful. Some of the deepest anxieties we face in life exist because we see life as a mystery. The only antidote that works for such anxiety is knowledge and understanding of the basics of life. If my knowledge and experience of life could help someone live a happier life, my life would have served its purpose. That is why I write.
