My life purpose, on the first try?
So tonight I did the process for finding one's life purpose and began to cry pretty heavily on the first try, i.e the first thing I wrote:
"Freeing children from sexual slavery."
which I changed to:
"Freeing people from sexual slavery."
For a couple of years I have had this idea of litterally going out and actually rescueing people or children who are being held captive and forced into sexual slaverly.
Just today as i was brainstorming for writing ideas, I came up with a short story about a guy who finds out he has one year to live. He moves to Cambodia, gets somewhat fluent in khmeer, and makes it his goal to resuce one child before he dies... and ends up rescueing a bunch and dies, crying with joy, thinking of their faces).
So... it's an emotional issue for me and one I have seriously considered as a life path.... so how do I know if it's the one? Do I keep on with the process and see if there are other ones out there which get me to cry more?

It sounds like sexual slavery was already an immensely powerful issue for you, and because of this I don't think you'll gain anything from looking for another purpose.
That is, the point of having a purpose is to have something that guides you and motivates you, if not for your whole life then at least for the foreseeable future (I don't believe anyone necessarily has a single, life-long purpose). Do you think the purpose you've found will be powerfully motivating, and act as positive, beneficial guide? If so, I don't think you need to look further, for now...
