The meaning of life is different for everyone.
But I think a common thread is to find the meaning in one’s life that makes sense, usually through action or purpose. By finding your purpose — what you were put on this Earth to do — you will find meaning.
One way to find that purpose is to explore different paths in life and don’t get set into one too early. Just because everyone else is doing something doesn’t mean you have to. Find your own path, explore your strengths, and, as the Greek aphorism says, “Know thyself.” A person who’s really explored their inner selves is bound to find their purpose and meaning.
