Immanuel Kant's second categorical imperative:

"Act so that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in that of another, always as an end and never as a means."

So that's what I've been doing wrong all these years. I constantly think of myself as a "means" (ie. utility, tool, etc.) It's what I derive purpose from... How can I find purpose solely as an end?

Any day before next weekend (excluding Wednesday) would be good! It would be easier for me for you to come here, but I can always cheat a ride down to your place if you can pay for a speedy to get me home afterwards. You are very welcome to come here, I just don't want you to be bored! lol.

Some people struggle with this question all their lives and don't find an answer. Don't worry if you don't find it right away.
