I believe that my purpose in life is simply to live my life as happily as possible. All actions should have their positives and negatives compared, and whichever action would cause more enjoyment in my life should be taken. All other factors only act to decide the outcome of an action.
I generally live my life by this, and it is very simple really. I've told this to some people and they don't seem to agree that this is a good rule to follow.
I have not heard a good argument against this though, and I'm sure there's one out there.
For example: I was arguing with a friend of mine who believes that love and relationships should not be perused because they are illogical and cause you to act foolishly and irrationally. I told him that even though my actions when I am in love may seem irrational, the act of following through with my love interests is itself the most logical course of action, since doing so would result in the most enjoyment in my life compared to the alternative action (not following my feelings for love). He did not agree at all, but never gave any counter argument.
I would like to hear someone's counter argument to this.
Do you agree that this is a good rule to live life by? Do we have a purpose other than simply trying to enjoy life?
