Purpose of life, what’s yours?

Each time I have a conversation with my friends regarding the future and the purpose of our existence, the fear of not making a difference overwhelms me.
I know one can never know his/her true purpose, those who believe in a higher power have some form of guidance that help them discover that purpose and for other, well life is just meant to be enjoyed…

For me, well I would say my purpose would be to help my continent, to make a difference but I struggle to comprehend exactly how I’m supposed to do it. See it sound nice to want to “be the change you want to see” but how exactly does one become the change when society expects you to study, graduate, get a job, a home, get married and live the rest of your life working to pay the bills and look after your family. Yes I want a family and a nice job, but I want to go out there to help people, to put smiles on the less privileged faces….

I don’t think I’m too young to make a difference but in order to do so, I need resources, I need an income. I can’t even stand to watch the news or surf the net, seeing what happens in this world just makes me feel selfish for wanting to study and get a job instead of helping out… But that’s a topic for another day…

What do you think your purpose in life is? Do you know it yet?
