Indigo Questions

by Matthew W. Coleman

What is my purpose in this terrible hateful world we all live in? That is the question I often ask myself. All my life, I've felt that I have a purpose in making the world a better place but I have no clue where to start or what to do. I’m 18 years old now. I live with my family and I am currently going to college but as my schooling is progressing I find myself growing bored of the repetition of daily obligations towards being a successful person.

Constantly I hear from my grandmother. “You’ll never be successful in life without an education. You need to go to college to get a well paying job. Then you can raise a family."

The thing is that I'm not the selfish type. I want to do things more for others rather than myself/my own personal benefit. Sometimes I feel trapped with this type of life. But I know I’m not trapped. I can break free from this section of my life any time I choose. I really do want to, but I don’t want to hurt the ones I love.

Right now I’m just waiting for an opportunity to spread my wings and share my love.

This is just how I feel being an Indigo.

Maybe you should follow through with the college thing. Think about the opportunities you would have to make the world a better place with a degree under your belt. Anyway, you can still spread your wings and share your love right where you are. Every time you help someone, even in the smallest way, that's exactly what you're doing. Your time will come.

Ive often felt the same way, but have grown tired of the rejection of closed minded people. Ive also been growing as an indigo adult, and have come to realize "the only person standing in my way, was myself" I too still have hope for this world and believe it will all come together in the end. We as indigos, know our own paths and must take our own paths. If you strongly feel that helping people is your true calling, then go for it, dont let other opinions stand in front your beliefs. Shine on and remember Nothing Is Impossible!
