Life is too short and time too precious for a person to squander their days attempting to sort out the various ways in which others may define them.
Your reputation, good or bad, will never be able to do the practical work of giving tangible expression to your creative ideas.
Whatever it is that you’re here to do, it is something which can only be done by “doing” rather than by debating, discussing, dissecting, and defining.
The meaning of life, however it is understood, must actually be lived if it is to truly be called a “meaningful life.”
Are you living your life or are you letting life pass you by while you tussle and toil with those whose meanings differ from yours?
Are you following your calling (or purpose, or vocation, or mission, or dream, or bliss, or whatever it is that makes you come alive) or are you preoccupied with analyzing how others are defining and describing you?
