Why Am I Here?

I am 22.
My mom passed away last year, my father hasn't contacted me in 3 months, my younger brother is in the custody of an aunt and uncle who I do not have a good relationship with, my grandparents have all passed away. I am essentially alone. I truly wonder what my purpose is? I am in school, I get awesome grades, I have my own place and car.. but I am not happy because I do not feel fulfilled. I want to experience something that just makes life worth living! I am in no way suicidal, but I feel like I am living a pointless existence. I wish I could drop everything and move to a state or country far away and just find out who I really am, and what I am doing here. I don't think humans were put on earth to lead boring lives of work, work, buy material things, die. What is the point of that? I don't want to be that person!

Look at the plus side, you have everything because of you. Not because someone handed it too you. Take a step back and look, (this may sound hard) you have no one to impress but your self. I wish I had that at your age. I went to a school I didn't like majored in something I'll never use. Just to make someone else happy. As soon as I finished school I left and did everything I wanted to do, everything that made me happy.

do what u want

It is real real truth of life. Feelings are finest, tender and very subtle part of life.To my mind the only remedy is to look for like minded people and try to help the destitutes in life. Many a time we do not know the purpose of life but universe knows it. Let us not leave efforts.

Keep your head up high. Feel for your soul but most of all be true to yourself. The path through life will have many entrance yet only focus on what's right. You will always find a carrying soul whom is willing to help. God Bless
