Do you have a calling?
« on: February 22, 2018, 12:35:04 pm »
Do you have a particular calling or purpose you want to achieve/fulfill in your lifetime? If so, when and how did you realize it?

Recently, I've been having trouble finding some sort of calling, and when I do get signals they just confuse me more and more. I'd love to hear some stories of people finding their purposes!

I'm not sure if I have found my true purpose yet.
But I sometimes get these vibes that tell me I need to be a leader and guide people through life's hardships.
I get these feelings on occasion, but not often.

right now, I'm having a bit of a self-discovery period. My life goal at the moment is to just make as many people happy as I can. Might as well make others lives better.

Not really. I either want to become a professional writer or artist. Maybe both!

My personal journey of self discovery. That could be my calling for the past several days/months. And I am at the age of self discovery, fitting for a calling right now.

That's the problem with "callings", I feel like I'm being pulled in multiple different directions! :0

Obviously I want to be an artist and a writer, and I'm very interested in making cartoons and (potentially) movies.

But at the same time my heart is like "woah! Music! I like that! You could perform one day! Even though you can't write lyrics or play an instrument! BUT YOU COULD SING!"

And then at other times, it's like "YO YO YO FORESTS ARE GOOD S*** you should be like that Christopher McCandles guy and just LIVE THE WILD LIFE!!"

The only thing I've found myself useful for is making people smile, so I try to do that daily. It's not really something I could turn into a job that pays, but I don't mind all that much.

I suppose I've left yet again, this time likely for good. Anthros are pretty cool, but I guess this fandom just isn't for me. Thank you all for all the good times I've had. My Discord is on my profile if you need to contact me.

I’m not quite sure what my calling is. As much as I’d like to be an artist, I don’t think I can make a career out of it. I had been considering being a veterinarian, but now I don’t think it’d work out!

I don't really know if I have a calling yet! I know I like to make people laugh, wether it be performing in fursuit, telling jokes, or even just doing something stupid.

Animals are my calling. I am no 100% sure what I want to do with them, but I would like to rescue exotic animals from the pet trade.  :fox-:P:

Reviving a semi-dead thread here, I think my calling would have to be either aerospace engineering or piloting commercial aircraft.
