Thinking about it, it's really painful to live without a purpose. And more than the physical redemption or going up into heaven one day as popularly referred to as salvation by many religions, I believe we need to be redeemed from within first, to discover who we really are, forgive ourselves of our shortcomings and believe we can be loved for who we really are. Now the last one doesn't sound so easy when we look around and see how we are constantly being ignored. Maybe the real problem is the lack of belongingness and connection to something we can accept as meaningful. For many people, that would be LOVE. But then again, we have stereotyped that love into a romantic affair that we fail time and again to have. Maybe we can define it more broadly into something more tangible yet more lasting, something that is not so exclusive and so elusive as to not be deserving of it, but something that is available to us all. We have put LOVE into a box in the same way that we have put GOD in it, and when things could not fit in, guess what happens?
