Deer Peer: How Will I Know My Purpose?

The MSU Spokesman

Dear Peer,

The past couple of days I have been in the deepest thought just wondering what was I put on this earth to do. I’m good with my hands and I have multiple talents, but what I am in school for doesn’t completely interest me.

I don’t know what my purpose is on this planet and that’s scary to go through life not knowing what you are here for. I feel like I have the ability to touch a bunch of people. I look at the Russell Simmons’ and Oprah’s of the world and say that they were put on this earth to move people spiritually and emotionally as well as empower their community. Well, what’s my purpose?



Dear Lost,

I believe it’s all about finding yourself; you have to find out who you are as a person. Finding yourself is the first step to finding out your destiny on this earth. The Creator put you on this earth for a reason. Instead of trying to find out why you were put on this planet, leave it to the creator and put your faith in him to guide you. If you do that you will find out what you are here for.

Now,  not everyone is here to touch people like Russell Simmons and Oprah Winfrey. However, whatever your calling is accept it, embrace it and find a way to make a difference in people’s lives.

Good luck,

Your Peer
