Even a small plant has a purpose is to filter the air for us.
The first purpose is to bring joy to your family.
Second is to take care of your parents (when they get old).
Third would be contribution to the society.
Beside that, if you think you don't have any purpose but a waste of resource and energy, or bring destruction, then there is no point in continue to live.
Plants don't filter air for us they do it for themselves, it's simply coincidence that they breathe Carbon Dioxide and produce Oxygen, which just so happens to be what we breathe.
It's not like plants are like, oh man. Check out those humans... we should make them some air. YES THAT MUST BE OUR PURPOSE!
No. Simply no.
Also bringing joy to your family, taking care of your parents and contributing to society... Thats not 'the purpose' of human life. That doesn't make any sense.
Why would the purpose of human life be to bring joy to your family? Your family is also human so human life is on the earth just to make human life happy? Makes perfect sense.
Taking care of your parents? So human life is on earth to take care of human life when they get old? Makes perfect sense.
And contributing to society? Human life is on earth to contribute to something we created? Makes perfect sense.
