Importance Of Purpose In Life

I have always prided myself in having a big heart. I want to help people. I wish everyone well. I connect with people; There are friends I have had since I was 8 years old. In my opinion, this part of my personality is a significant part of my purpose in life. I have already started to achieve that when I got my certification for being a nurse’s aid. Caring for the elderly is a great life experience I will cherish. Staying hopeful, I am confident that I will get into nursing school. This will further my education, allow me to help more people, and to achieve my personal goals. Already having a certification allows me to “put my toe in the water”, so to speak. This aspect puts me above thriving, but finishing nursing school will put me 100% …show more content…
My boyfriend and I have been together (off and on) for 5 years and we are very happy. We have been living together for 2 years. At this moment, we live with his family. They are very close with me. My boyfriend and I both come from big families, and we are very close with them both. My immediate family except my eldest brother do not live around here. I call them at least once every two weeks. Everyone in my family and my boyfriend’s are very supportive of my decision of going back to school. I am the first person in my family to go to college for more than a semester. Support from my family (and my boyfriend’s) is providing encouragement to pursue something. This includes emotional support, which is very important when making big life decisions. No one in my family has gone to college for more than a certification or two. I feel this makes me thriving because I can go to anyone in my family or my boyfriend’s and ask for help with anything. Talking to my family about my worries definitely helps lower stress levels. Outside of my family and my boyfriend’s family, I have a great circle of friends. We are musicians, we sit around and talk about music. We play music to destress. Concerts are something I enjoy very much when I can afford it. I would not change anything about my social life.

The job market for college students is not very promising in a small town in Indiana. There is just not a lot of growth or potential. I have a small retail job at this moment that gets me by. My boyfriend has a stable job, but it just enough to support us both. This is something I am very thankful for. On the other hand, my resume is not very solid. After I dropped out of high school, it was hard to find a permanent position. Being employed somewhere for more than 6 months is not something I have done. Perhaps luck is not on my side, or I have not found my niche. This is something that needs improvement. Ideally, within the next couple of months, I can find something more stable. Stable would be better hours, more flexibility with my school schedule, or just something that I would enjoy. Burning bridges is something I have done in the past, and I hope to not do it again. There are mistakes that have been made, but I digress. Moving forward is the correct plan of action. I do not define financial stability as success; It is just a factor that helps get you there. It is not required. I feel I am just above surviving, I have a place of living, food, and clothes. There are others that do not have these. “Comfortable” would be a better term than surviving, I feel. I would only change what job I have at this moment. I cannot change the past mistakes I have
