Purpose of life

A developmental approach to determining the Purpose of Life is presented below for your consideration. 
It is useful when considering Why my child is depressed?  
What children hope for is to be loved, to be liked, to be capable and then, as an adult, to be needed. 
We are depressed when we lose hope that this will ever happen.
