    “Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

    I agree. Trying to "find" yourself is to put undue pressure on yourself - you will not realize your life's purpose in an epiphany. You should instead focus on working on yourself, trying to improve yourself, trying new things, learning from new experiences. Only then can you realize what you...
