I'm looking for ideas:

What are your plans for your life?
What do you want to do with your life?
What are you living for?
What is the meaning of life?

How should I decide what to do with my life?

How does one evaluate values & morals?

If you can't tell the difference between right and wrong, the right path will elude you for your entire life. If you can tell the difference, it is a no brainer.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

The Fool: By avoiding the Left!
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

Just live, be honest with yourself, never lie to yourself, do your best with what you have, if you don't have what you need try and work for it, if you can't get what you need try to evaluate if you really need it, if you do think/feel like you really need it then think of other ways to get it... And never be afraid to make mistakes and fail; learn from your mistakes and try your hardest to get up even stronger after you've screwed up. Believe in yourself. Never be afraid to do and think what is right. As for how to know what is right.... That will come with age (experience) combined with learning, which can be done through art (books, shows, movies, music) through socializing with people, through traditional education, etc.

Don't be in a rush to figure out a set meaning of life upon which everything will be clear and you'll know where to go and what to do. Life is a challenge, and it is comprised of many different decisions, big and small, and each one requires effort, and effort requires strength. Just be open minded and try learning both intellectually and from actual life experiences (sometimes, if you're lucky, a combination of the two) and as you grow older in age and in natural wisdom, if you keep trying your hardest, and if you've got a little bit of luck and people to help you, life has a way of figuring itself out - I believe that if you do all these things then life naturally sets you on the right path, which is the right path for YOU, not for anyone else, but what is right for you needn't be right for anyone else but you.

Also, criticism of any kind is your best friend - if you fear or resent other peoples' criticisms of you, or their decisions which you may disagree with, and fail to understand why they hold that criticism/made that decision, you will never be allowed to grow.

Have a family. Travel. Become educated. Among many other things.

What do you want to do with your life?

For a job? Looking to study economics and business.

What are you living for?

1)My family. 2) I have no idea what lies after this world. It very well may be the end. So I might as well enjoy this one.

What is the meaning of life?

I don't believe there is a meaning, I think we all apply our own meaning to our own lifes.


How should I decide what to do with my life?

I simply try and make it through each day, and go with the flow. Find something that interests you, and learn more about it!


How does one evaluate values & morals?

Eh...depends. I'm a live and let live person, who tries (TRIES!!!) not to judge others. Depends on the moral or value, though. I don't really look to religion for the answer to life. I think about things from different perspectives (I do what your name implies, playing the devils advocate) and try and see what makes sense.
The problem with socialism is that, sooner or later, you run out of people's money."_Margaret Thatcher

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."_Thomas Jefferson

"The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it."_Thomas Jefferson

Take it from an older dude that has a lot of want for 'do-overs.'

We don't always choose (Chuz) our own path. Sometimes our path chooses us no matter how hard we try to change course and after that we are pretty much along for the ride.

There is no right path in life. You can't find what doesn't exist.
