    Is anybody else just floating through life, acheving aboustly nothing and having no idea what it all means?

    Cool I'm the only one.

    Good chat internet. I always love our discussions.

    Also on the plus side here is another day I didn't go to a porn site. My last streak was 60 days then I accidentally googled a porn star I didn't even get to the "racey pictures" but I thought well I'm kinda almost at a relapse anyway.

    Yesterday I heard in the news some teacher got in trouble for looking at very illegal and psychology damaging porn and it freaked me out. I don't know where that stuff is found and I don't want to know. I do not need to ruin my life or others. Honestly the thought of going to jail keeps me reasonably ethical. I would not survive a day in jail.

    One day I'll have life figured out but today isn't that day. Today I just feel depressed, lonely and annoyed with all the life choices I make. I wish I knew what I was doing, where I was going or how I am supposed to spend my time. I wish I knew what it is all supposed to mean or how I'm supposed to move forward.

    If anyone has life figured out or knows how your supposed to do this whole ... living your life thing... let me know?

    Do you really want someone to tell you what's the purpose of life? Wouldn't be better to look for it by yourself? In my opinion the purpose of life is to find your purpose, no one can tell you.

    To live it and experience it in the present moment as much as possible.

    Find out that this existence has Creator, whom you can prove by logic and observation, and to fix your character traits, and if possible help others fix themselves. Don't steal, don't murder, don't do disgusting immoral stuff, don't be cruel to animals, and all other logical moral requirements. The Creator is the Admin and if you break the rules, you get banned :D

    Those are the borders, but later on, you have to figure out, what you've got and how you can benefit the world, to improve it, with your skills and talents, without breaking the barrier.

    At the end of life, everyone will have to pay and receive their reward for what they have done. The reward for good and penality for doing bad. Sometimes we get rewarded or punished here. Evil people may have better lives so that they would not receive rewards for good things in the next eternal world. And good people receive punishment here so that they don't have to receive it in the next world.

    The wonderful thing is that you're the one who decides. Unless you're incarcerated or incapacitated there's a huge array of potential goals you can pick and dedicate your life to.

    The majority of people choose having and raising children as a life purpose.

    Isn't it a rock without purpose when you first look at it? Yet without rocks you wouldn't have sand to appreciate the beauty of a beach.

    Purpose of life is to find your own purpose and follow it with all your heart.

    Well, I'm tented of answering "42", but I'm guessing not everybody will get it.
    My idea is that life has no inherent purpose, it's up to you to find the purpose of yours. Not an easy task. Some people change plans along the way, and that's totally okay. Think of what you're good at and what you like doing.
    As an atheist, I think it's up to you because nobody, no higher power, will provide you with the Answer with a capital A, though many people can give you advice that can help you in this direction. One way or another, you will find your purpose.

    I believe that we are spiritual creatures, so our purpose is to be spiritual and have a relationship with our Creator. There can be lesser purposes like getting married or having a child, but those are secondary.

    That too. It was an excellent game for its time. GTA IV was better, in my opinion.
