"Hell is waking up every God damn morning and not knowing why you're even here. Why you're even breathing." - Marv, Sin City
Ain't that the truth.
Whether you believe that we create our own purpose, that purpose is part of the fabric of the universe (such as the quest for enlightenment), or that God has a (perhaps very broadly sketched) purpose for each of us, my experience is that life is pretty hard to take if you don't feel that it (not "life the abstract concept" but your life) has any purpose at all.
What's your purpose? Or to put it in more postmodern terms, what's your story?
I hope it's a page-turner.
