Purpose of life

What is your purpose for existing? What gives you a sense of meaning and place in the world? What fulfils you and makes you feel like there is a plan for this life or a next? I don’t have one. I’ve searched for years for something that could give me a sense of purpose. I’ve failed in my longing for it. Sometimes I feel as though I’m finally on to something, but then soon after the thing feels hollow and untrue. Have any of you found a source for pushing onwards?
Sorry this post is so existentially emo. But these questions have been the bane of my existence for a long time. Any advice?

My purpose is to be content with what I have and am. To keep busy with what I want to be busy with.

Someone important said the purpose of life is to serve humanity. Makes sense to me. Maybe the purpose of life is to find out what the purpose of life is.

I think it’s almost a miracle if you can find your calling, because there’s so much negativity and dishonesty.

The purpose of life for a single human being is to consume the resources on this planet will call Earth. Humans then get married, procreate and continue the human species through children and grandchildren. The purpose of life in microeconomic terms is to form a household which gets larger by the number of people and increase in consumption as decades pass.

My purpose is just to survive as long as possible.

I think the main purpose of life is to make more life. If we all stopped procreating then there would be no more life. And if there is no more life it can’t have a purpose because it something doesn’t exist it can’t have a purpose…

I joke about owning all the electronics (or at least all the good ones), but I think we are supposed to check out leaving the planet in as good as or better shape than we found it.

The only thing I can say is that I’m happy with the life I’m living and I feel so lucky. Are you jealous or what?
I have never had an argument in this forum and I have always been respecful. So I think I don’t deserve to be treated like this.
And yes, maybe I got it all covered already and that’s because I have worked so hard on it since I was a little girl.

If there is a purpose of life I would guess that it would be that each generation of humanity as a whole advances mankind forward. More knowledge and tech advancement with every generation, etc.
