I was told this growing up, but now that I am grown I wonder. Do most of you feel like you have a purpose in life?

I've been told the same thing. That's from a religious view point, I think. Personally, I believe that life is what we make it. We all as individuals probably could succeed more than we have, if we try hard enough:)

considering the amount of deadbeat parents, drug users/sellers and generally pathetic excuses for human beings, if there is a higher power that 'assigned' fate, the jokes on us.
I used to think everything happens "for a reason" but I've learned that you make your own life what it is. Your own decisions contribute to how your life turns out.

That was the whole premise of the movie Forrest Gump. Do we all have a destiny, or are we just floating around like a feather in the breeze?

Most definitely this life given to us has a purpose. Yes, there are a lot of misfortune people, but the road you take in life has many choices and opportunities to change your direction. Everyone has a predestined purpose and time and place of death; it's the off choices that point your life in a different direction in your path.
