Really confused about my Lifes Purpose!!
I have only recently come to this site and have been really enjoying it and have found it really helpful. Today I decided to do the Life Purpose exercise...so I took out paper and started writing - about 10 minutes into the exercise I wrote something that made me cry - it not only made me cry but everytime I think of it I react - it is almost physical...but I really dont think that it can be my lifes purpose - not really.
All of my list was about helping people accept themselves - helping them to discover who they are - helping them on their journey and along their path - accepting them as they are while helping them to change...then I wrote 'To love X' (X being the man that I am in love with)...
At first I dismissed my reaction because I thought that it was a result of my very strong feelings for him - that my love for him had caused me to react so strongly...then i decided that as I wasnt getting any further on my exercise I should look at it...I know that by loving him I want him to feel accepted and loved for who he is - for every part of him...I want him to feel that he can trust again and I want to always encourage him to achieve whatever his heart desires...Perhaps that is something I want to do for everyone - I want to help people grow emotionally and feel accepted...my lifes purpose cannot be to love one man...
What do others think...have I reacted so strongly to this because I love him so much - or is it because loving him is an example of what I would like to achieve in some way with others?

OK - I have thought about it a bit more and I think that possibly it was along the lines of what my purpose is - that perhaps my relationship with him achieves in a small way what my lifes purpose is - I am going to continue with the exercise until I discover my true lifes purpose! Hope that makes sense - apologies for freaking out a bit and posting before I had fully thought it through or completed the process!!
