Mediocre is how i would describe my life up until this point. I've never known my true potential, my calling, or my purpose. I don't know what I want to be or what I'm good at and the fear that i'll never know destroys me mentally everyday. It makes me feel worthless compared to my small group of friends who know their path in life.

Maybe there is something unique that i'm not seeing in myself or maybe i'm just waiting for someone to show it to me. I yearn for more motivation but the depression and anxiety easily stop that. My friends and I are really close (3 friends, known for 8+ years) but now that were older and trying to build our futures, we don't see each other as often and i want someone to be there to listen, understand, and make me feel like less of a wasted life. It kind of sounds like a need a girlfriend, maybe i am, maybe i'm not, I just want someone that show me that i'm needed.

I don't think it a great idea to pin all your hopes on one person to make you whole. As cliché as it sounds, only you can change you. It might be better to work on your own self esteem and finding your own talent in life rather than finding someone to find it for you. I'm not saying finding a supportive girlfriend is a bad idea, just that it isn't fair to place the burden of all your insecurities on her. I hope that this year will be different for you and that you find something that motivates you and makes your life worth while.
