Finding your Purpose by Being Yourself

September 21

What is purpose? Honestly, there may be definitions on google that might tell you what purpose means. But let’s all be real; the dentition on google isn’t always true. 


All those songs, movies, artsy tumblr posts, and Bible verses can sometimes show you that people have a purpose, but what if you can’t find your purpose? That always comes to my mind.

People always tell you that you are put on this earth to do something great. And I am not saying that isn’t true, but right now I am having trouble finding that purpose and discovering what I was put on this earth to do. I may still be a kid or teenager or whatever they call me, but that doesn’t stop me from trying to find it.

Honestly, I know that I wasn’t put on this earth for something related to school and that is fine with me.

But when I walk around school, I see all these kids that are so smart, and I can tell which kids have a bright future. I can see it in my friends too.

In school, they say that everyone’s their own kinda smart, but sometimes I don’t see it like that. Is it wrong to think that? Because I struggle with math, I have been in this program called literacy math since 6th grade, and I have always been so embarrassed about it.

School really scares me, but i have realized school isn’t my thing. And it will never be my thing, and I just have to learn to accept it.

I have plans for myself, but I am scared to grow up because I know that my future is coming. Sometimes I think of it like a movie that is in the making, and when its done, it will be shown in theater. You don’t want to have a 1 star movie do you? You also don’t want to have a one star life. That might sound crazy but that is how I think about it sometimes.

Life is scary. And school is scary. And so is finding your purpose, but here is what I have learned: it doesn’t matter how smart you are, how pretty you are, how funny you are, how popular you are. In the long run, it just matters who you are.

And that might be weird to think about, but I am still teaching myself to stop trying to be someone I am not and just be the person I am.

For a while, I tried to hang out with the “popular” people because I wanted to people to think that I was cool. I got so caught up with this until I realized that I didn’t fit in with them.

I am honestly so glad I stopped trying to be this person that I wasn’t. God blessed me with the most amazing friends and family I could ever ask for, and they accept me for who I am.

It might be super cheesy, but we were put on this world for something great. So start chasing that instead of chasing the person you want to be. Just be the person who you are and live in the moment with that person. That is what purpose is.


Be the person who you are because everybody needs a little bit of you and your qualities in this word, believe it or not. So forget the person who you wish you were, and be the person who you truly are. And you will find your purpose somewhere.

Awesome. We will send you a quality story from time to time.
