I want to feel purpose again

I want to feel like I have a role in the world. After my fpe, my life has felt meaningless. I feel like before, I lived in false narratives about myself, but those narratives got destroyed during psychosis. It’s difficult to explain exactly what happened to me. I think, if I had some meaning, and I could make some sort of contribution to the world, it would help me recover.


The only time I felt I had a purpose in life was when I was working. I quit my last job April 2020. I don’t think I can work now on my current meds. Maybe Vraylar, a new med here, will help. Its being reviewed by Health Canada, I hope it will be approved.

I think I thought I had some sort of secret purpose. At least, that idea must have infiltrated my psyche at some point, but at the same time my life has always felt meaningless.

i have a few things giving some meaning to my life but not altogether a strong drive to accomplish etc.

part of some small purpose in my life is fighting the battle of sz and trying to overcome the disease part.

i think we contribute a whole lot to modern medicine and more with our doing loving things despite it all.

Maybe find your own personal meaning. Like what do you enjoy to do.
Do you want to make a positive difference to the world when you leave it.

Stuff like that

Or just whatever feels right for you


I’m struggling to find my purpose in life as well. I used to think it was in producing music but I gave up on being a producer and I can’t really play the guitar yet. I’m learning tho.
