I Don’t know who I am.

It’s odd, i find myself not being able to label myself or not finding how i fit into certain groups or what my purpose of hanging out with people is. Why do people enjoy my presence? why do some people not enjoy my presence? What in general, makes me, me? I’m 19, I enjoy thinking. I am definitely normal. I Don’t do anything odd or differentiate myself from anyone else. I don’t try to either. I work, hang out on weekends, I have my fair share of issues. I don’t know what my purpose is yet. This is my first internet published idea piece I have ever done. I enjoy writing. I have never written anything that wasn’t mandatory though, like I’ve written essays and stuff, and they come pretty natural to me. I’ve just never written on my own time. I have all these ideas in my head, hopefully this is a start of a good trend. For now, Everyone can just call me Nate. Its easier than my real name.

  1. Nate, you are surely a writer. This is a good start. Try a short story or short essay. The sooner you start writing the sooner you will find yourself defined. Besides that, you are a beloved son of the Most High God, and Jesus loves you. That should be your strongest definition. Bless you!

  2. Most people do not know who they are. We are all here as a species without any purpose. If you want a purpose, you have to create a purpose in your mind for yourself. Maybe it’s writing a great essay that changes the world. Either way, you don’t look for a purpose, you create one. No one has any purpose other than the one an individual makes for themselves.

    And… If you really want to go to the highest levels of philosophy, think about death. Right now you’re experiencing life, but you will be dead and stop existing one day. It might be a little bit too high level for you right now so focus on a purpose first, but one day you will cease to exist and none of your memories or emotions or possessions or anything will have mattered.
