Family. Providing for them and representing my heritage.
Friends (Some Family). Being my best for them.
Faith. Life has meaning and purpose from God/higher power.
The World. Being altruistic and giving what I can to everyone I meet.
Myself. I live for me and enjoying all I can.
Nothing. I just go through the motions.
I don't know. I'm searching but haven't found it.
This is a discussion on What Drives You Most in Life? within the Polls forums, part of the Announcements category; The hunger...
Responsibility. I am responsible for the life of my dog, who pretty much lives in function of me. At the moment, I could say my project/game is also a drive, but I don't know for how long.
I would have killed myself four years ago if not for her.
Faith and family...
I love doing good for others. I've always been that way. If there's any way that I can help others, I'll do it. Planning on making a card for my brother since he just lost his dog recently. So I'm going to make him a card. Even might donate a few items to the charity too. :)
Hmm... honestly, none of the options really fit.
I'm living my life chasing some vague concept of exploration and adventure, while also trying to find someone to share that with and help those I can on the way while I do my thing. So..... which would it be?
Where is bitter hatred and desire to spread as much misery as possible? I'm disappointed.
On more serious note, nothing as I just don't care about anything enough to make it purpose of my life. I wouldn't necessarily mind finding something assuming I would even be able to do so.
Interestingly, when I have a partner, I often feel like my drive is chasing a more perfect world in every way. It pleases me to do everything I can to make myself and a partner completely whole and healthy. I take it all upon myself to promote a new way of life for both of us based on science, biology, spiritual wisdom, modern psychology, my intuition, etc. I love continuous improvement and fighting against the fatigue that comes from poor habits.
Or, when I don't have a partner, like in recent months, my drive is becoming the kind of person that could run into and seduce such a partner. The majority of energy comes from the idea of the soulmate.
It's been different for brief periods of my life, like in university when studies took over, but it always comes back to this.
tbh I used to live for myself. That nearly got me killed. I used to live for family but then I could never live up to their expectations so that didn't work. I used to live for my friends but in the end I switch friends so much it was meaningless. I used to live for my significant other but then they turned abusive and I had to leave them too (PAYYYCE SUKKAA!!)
Soooo then I found Jesus. He's the only thing I've found that utterly FILLS the emptiness in me. He's the only thing that gives me PURPOSE and makes life worth living. When I'm in a huge, terrible situation I know I'll come out of it okay because of Him - I now he's in control and that gives me PEACE that I've never had before. He's the only thing that makes me fulfilled. <3
I'm mostly driven by my values - things that are important to me (attitudes, interests, morals, hopes and dreams and love)...
