Identity Crisis

Being blatantly honest, I have not started my homework yet for today. And it is 9:42pm.

I do not know if this is just my personality, but being in high school, I often have identity crises that question: Am I a humanities person or STEM person? What job should I go into? What should I major in? What can I do to help my community by still being able to find my passion? How do I find my passion?

These thoughts dash through my head every day, and I do not know how to find that spark. Being openminded, I have joined and left several clubs, but I still cannot find that passion.

The real question is: At what age do people finally find their passion? How do I know what I can do in life to be happy?

My mother, being a middle-aged woman, works with other people and she tells me some of them still do not know their passion; This proves how adults cannot find that passion either. I want to help people to find that spark. I want myself to help others, for that feeling of giving has grown into me. If only there was a way to help people find a career path or even an enjoyed hobby, I want to help. Not only do others need this aid, but I myself will need it too.

Thanks for reading, if you have any suggestions to what I can do to find my own spark and help others find theirs, it would be great:)

  1. It can be a difficult thing to consider and it takes a while to find what you want to do in life. At the same time that’s the thing about life: uncertainty. You may feel you want to move in one direction then you find yourself going elsewhere. Some writers started after age 50+.

    Whichever career path comforts you, makes you feel welcome, and makes you feel that doing anything else would hinder you – that’s the one. Thing is, sometimes you never know. In terms of help, sometimes the smallest bit of help can make a big difference in someone’s life and small bits add up.

    I’ve learned over time that plenty of adults are just as lost as kids. They have to hide this fact, to be brave in this scary world. You always have time to make choices. Take your time living life.

    1. Thank you so much for your insight! I just wonder where and when these small bits of help will accumulate. Also, the feeling of moving in one direction and then the next for a particular subject is so accurate, I couldn’t agree more.
