THE DILEMMA OF BEING SINGLE AND WANTING PURPOSE IN LIFE

1366820210_bear_catches_salmon

Nature has purpose in life. Survive in the environment and if you do so successfully then you will be rewarded with being able to reproduce the next generation. If you have educated yourself to the point where you land a good paying job, enough to support a family, then you too can marry and live a rewarding family life with purpose knowing that your reproductive urges will be satisfied and you will have offspring which you hopefully will have pride in old age.

If you are single and hate your job and don’t want to commit to married life then the question of purpose in your life becomes a serious issue.  I don’t want to commit to a spouse so what do I commit to? 

Some humans decide that they will commit to reeducation and the hope of getting a satisfying job in the future,

some decide that they will commit to a greater cause such as the preservation of biodiversity and channel their efforts in that direction,

some decide that they will pursue their interest in an arts field which pays poorly but is something they truly enjoy,

some commit to a political movement and try to change the world, some commit to leading a healthy life by eating healthily and exercising,

still others commit to a life of hedonistic pleasure or things which immediately bring satisfaction to them,

and some do not commit to anything but continue to live lives of uncertainty and depressing isolation. 

If you are single and uncommitted then try to find one or more things to commit to which will hopefully bring you lasting satisfaction in your single life. If you don’t know where to start then start by acquiring new knowledge by going on the internet and searching under list of goals which you can commit to.

I came up with one link http://antwondavis.com/100-life-goals/ which is just one example of how to find goals which you can commit to. A general list of the 100 goals follows which you can find details for in the link.

EXPERIENCE GOALS

FINANCIAL GOALS

BUSINESS GOALS

TRAVEL GOALS

GIVING GOALS

INFLUENCE GOALS

FAMILY GOALS

PHYSICAL GOALS

SKILL-SET GOALS

 

Once you find out what goals you are interested in then you can start committing to them and start having purpose in your life!!!!!!
