Dear Johnny,
Now that I’m a junior, I’m constantly being attacked with the same question, “What are you going to do with your life?” It seems like everyone else has it all figured out, or at least have a passion for something. My friends are starting  medical internships, starting businesses and jobs. How do they already know their path? How should I know what my future will be?
Sincerely,
Confused

Dear Confused,
Let me start off by telling you that you are not alone. Anyone who has lived for less than two decades probably doesn’t keep all of life’s answers in his/her pocket. Most people claim that by now, we have realized our passions, goals, and identity; however, that is not the case. Until the time when you realize what path must be taken, the only thing you can do is keep living. This may make you want to flip over a table, but no one has the ability to foresee the future. We human beings can only gain knowledge by experience. Though it feels as though these teenage years are spent wandering without a clue, it is all an essential part to figuring out this enigma called Life.

Whenever you feel discouraged, just know that there is a void in this world that can only be filled by you, and whatever choice you make fills that void. The important part is that we remain honest and content with ourselves. So what is your life’s purpose? It’s whatever you want it to be.

Sincerely,
Johnny the Jet
