  1. Baca pertanyaannya jadi kayak bicara sama diri sendiri. Sepertinya butuh waktu untuk merenungkan kembali tujuan hidup

  2. No 29 -> In a comfortable place, with a cool room, there are donuts and favorite mango juice, as well as a soft mattress
    Lah kamar tidur dong 🤣

  3. Wah jadi intropeksi diri pas membaca hampir semua pertanyaan, yang kadang relate banget sama kehidupan sehari-hari

  4. Wow, this is great. So from these various questions, we come to know many things about our lives. It can even look for solutions or steps to be taken.
    Thank you for sharing, Mas

  5. Sepertinya untuk menjawab semua pertanyaan ini nggak bisa dalam sekali duduk ya. Diperlukan berkali-kali kontemplasi diri menjawab satu demi satu pertanyaan sampai akhirnya menemukan life purpose kita.

  6. jadi seperti menjawab untuk ngebuat CV kalau mau buat lamaran beasiswa nih. mari kita coba jawab sekalian kontemplasi

  7. Ngomongin tujuan hidup rasanya bikin merenung kembali ya kak.

    There was a time when I also experienced anxieties in my life.worrying about not being able to work. It turns out that finding the meaning of life starts with questions to yourself.

  10. njawabnya perlu perenungan nih, pertanyaannya dalam...
    Emang kadang perlu menanyakan kembali pada diri ini pertanyaan pertanyaan tersebut, karena kadang terlalu mengikuti arus yang membuat terlena dan lupa tujuan...

  11. No. 6 dan 7, buat kita selalu ingat mati ya. Tapi gak apa-apa, biar kita jadi fokus ke tujuan hidup.
    Pertanyaannya berasa self talk banget ya.

  12. Ask your self is more meaningfull than just do routines activities like a robot or machine. I think all of those questions above could have been answer all of problem we face everyday. It can be named Ikigai in Japan trust.

  13. Waduuh jujur aja ini ketakutan aku banget wkwkwk. Tapi emang mesti dihadapi. Kesimpulannya malah aku masih belum kenal diriku sendiri dengan baik ckckckc.

  14. Mantap banget pertanyaan-pertanyaannya... Buat bahan renungan nanti malam nih... Terima kasih ya :)

  15. waduh waduh, berbobot sekali pertanyaan pertanyaannya
    mau tak coba ah, sekalian merenung

  16. That's true. Pertanyaan ini bisa digunakan untuk mencari apa tujuan hidup kita sebenarnya. Aku beberapa kali ikut kelas motivasi dan pemberdayaan diri. Untuk mengenali diri sendiri, kita harus tahu dulu apa tujuan yang ingin kita raih. What is the purpose of our life?
