What purpose have your chosen for your life?

"The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be."
- Oprah Winfrey

Your life can be about whatever you want it to be about. The choice is largely up to you.

The question about how you choose should revolve around two primary considerations. First is how you will feel about how you lived your life when you look back over it as an old person and have to live the rest of your life with the consequences of what you chose so many years earlier.

Second is what will happen to the essence of you that inhabits the body that will die some day. That is, will your eternal essence be enhanced by your experience of living this life? Or will it be degraded, possibly even to the point of being unable to recover to your intended potential?

You were left here on your own. Your integrity is at stake. You make your own choices and live with them and the consequences of them later.

Choose as if eternity depended on your choices.
