    Thanks. I'm keeping this thread near by to read through as needed. Thanks Wolfy (especially for the quote) and haphazard.

    Feeling is primarily a process.....that imparts to the content a definite value in the sense of acceptance or rejection. In the same way that thinking organizes the contents of consciousness under concepts, feeling arranges them according to their value. Feeling, like thinking, is a rational function, since values in general are assigned according to the laws of reason...

    Jim Collins Hedgehog principle is a better way of looking at it. You don't really need a purpose, or a passion, or a whatever you want to call it. You'll never find a job without some shitty aspect to it. But if you find something you like so much that you'll hurt for it, and that is what passion is, then that makes it easier to work long and hard.

    An at the end of the day you need to choose. To close off options.

    The secret to a successful life is hardly a secret; it requires you to be 

self-centered as all fuck, is all. So long as it’s not at the expense of others, make yourself the center of your universe. You only get to do this ONCE, so try to take as much stress out of the process as you can.

    That's my definition of purpose/passion and stuff is to like it so much I'll hurt for it. But I think I need to work on some underlying fears/insecurities perhaps, in regards to this first before I can even narrow it down O.o. Do you have ideas how I could do that? Thanks Wolfy or whoever else responds at a future time :-).

    I'd just want to know I took each moment and made the best of it . Lived happily/did the right thing/make sure the people that are near and dear that I love them and stuff. Did what I could with that moment to make a difference perhaps. **

    Ahhh haha I see what you did there . Present moment approach, nice one.

    Fears, everybody has them. Decide what you want, what you need to do, and walk in a straight direction. Just live with fear and don't try to resolve it, same with all that, just live with it. Move forward.

    I will not fear
    Fear is the mindkiller,
    Fear is the little death
    That brings total Oblivion
    I will permit my fear to pass
    Over me and through me
    And where it has gone
    I will turn the inner eye
    Nothing will be there
    Only I will remain.

    thank you. I really appreciate your straightforward approach as well and definitely the quote also :-D.
    That quote got me through grief, perhaps it will help here too.
