The Beginner’s Guide to Finding Your Purpose

Wherever purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable – Dr. Myles Munroe 

Jesse was at his wit’s end.

He was about to make a permanent decision (suicide) from a  temporary problem. (His girl leaving him)

Why even bother to live? Jesse thought.

He felt ashamed, embarrassed, rejected, and confused. Maybe life really is a waste of time. He thought.

As negative thoughts continued to plague his mind. He began to think about his life.

What’s the use if Sarah doesn’t want him then who will?

He reflected on all the things he did with Sarah, how he treated her kindly, showed respect, and gave her much-needed love and attention.

All of those gestures are what he saw his father do to his mom.

He began to question himself. Why would Sarah leave him for another guy?

What did he do wrong? Jesse slammed the table with his fist.

He grabs the pill bottle he had found in his mother’s medicine cabinet.

As he stared down at the bottle, several tears dropped from his hand.

He proceeded to unscrew the bottle’s cap. 

Finding Yourself Finding purpose
