Answering Some Questions – Purpose

I know, I know. You are wondering anxiously if I will answer the tenth question. Your wait is over.

Day 10, the final day, of answering questions posed by Diane Owens.

Question #10
Does everyone in this world have a purpose? If so, do we ever find out what the purpose is?

Well, the Christian in me says, yes, everyone has a purpose. But I am in no mood for proselytizing tonight, so I am not going to be theological about this one.

Do we ever find out what that purpose is? Possibly.

Everyone has a skill set. Everyone has experiences that give a unique perspective. If you feel you do not know your purpose, go look for it. It might be what you expect. Then again, it might not. Find what drives you. Find what makes you happy. Find what gives you a sense of accomplishment. Hone your skills. Learn new ones. You can find a purpose, if you want to. And if you do not like the options the world presents you then create one you do like.

In a very general way of speaking, your purpose is to be you. Not to be self-centered. Not to do anything you want without regard to others. But to be you, to be who you are, and to be the best person you that you can manage to be.

That is what all this D/s talk is about. It is one way of being the best person you can be. That is why (in case you wondered) we bother to do it. If D/s is not your thing, don’t do it. If it is, embrace it. If your thing is something else, embrace that.

Embrace who you are. Do not be stagnant. Do not stop growing. I am not saying that. I am saying grow, improve you. Move forward. Be a better you tomorrow than you were today. Do that, and even if you never recognize your purpose, you will find it.
