First of all I want to welcome you to the Healing Well depression forum. You have come to a good place. Everybody here is very supportive.
Now, I feel like I would be doing your homework for you with the answers to this question. I think that the therapist would like you to do this on your own.
But I will give you some suggestions.
Why did you start this thread? Think about it. You will find the answers that you are looking for. And that could be thought of as a clue.

What gives someone purpose? Thats a question only the person can answer. Just because you know what isnt the answer, it doesnt mean that you know what is. It is something that is personal to everyone since people are motivated by different things. You need to look within yourself for the answer... looking at your true motivation for posting here is a good start
