Decades ago I read that existentialists, not believing in God or isms, found the purpose of life is to honor the commitments we make to people in everyday life. That works for me, but it sure would be nice to have a job where I felt I was contributing to society instead of just making rich people richer. I have applied to work at nonprofits but never got hired. People seem very focused on hiring someone from the same or a similar industry.

My main commitment/focus is supporting my college student son as he prepares to launch himself into the world.
