The true purpose of life is to find God. The Need for Self-Realization is the need to know the truth. “The truth simply is.” Everyone must be able to know the truth by consulting their intuition. You can accept truth intellectually. It’s more difficult to accept emotionally. Whenever we have a desire, we are not fully accepting what is.
When you are looking for truth, you need to step back. When you are not so close to the issue you can make decisions with detachment.
