What is my purpose?

“A person’s life purpose is nothing more than to rediscover, through the detours of art or love or passionate work those one or two images in the presence of which his heart first opened.”

~ Albert Camus

I used to be confused about what my purpose was in life. Over the last few years, i’ve realized it’s nothing grand, just a simple one.. to love and care for people, to be kind.. not just to the ones i love, but also others.. I used to think that one’s life purpose should be something huge. But it’s not the same for everyone. It needn’t be huge or grand.

I do need my alone time too, i’m not exactly a people’s person. But when i’m with others, be it with loved ones or at work, if i don’t love, if i’m not kind, it bothers me to the extent of hating myself. I don’t need achievements or success the way society expects. I like my purpose. I used to think it was helping people, i do like helping people.

But my purpose is simple.. to love and be kind every single day, to everyone i meet. To carry love, always in my heart, the same way i was given..when my heart first opened.
