My Purpose Predates Being a Wife.

I strongly believe every human being is born with a purpose. None of are simply here by chance. Finding one’s purpose is important as it is central to the concept of fulfillment in life. Moving with a lack of purpose can cause one to feel as though they are like a hamster on a wheel…running but getting nowhere. When the understanding of purpose is missing there can be a misunderstanding of titles, and the role they play in your life. Titles come with responsibilities and expectation based on said title. The best example that comes to mind is that of a parent. The title parent comes with a laundry list of responsibilities, and if not careful the title can easily be misunderstood as purpose. This could be why some relationships are going through challenges, because the relationship has become a place holder for purpose.
