Hey everyone,

i've always been 'different'. I was a troubled child, getting into fights, into trouble and I regret it so much, I failed at school and I don't know where life is leading me, my past of trouble could be preventing me from joining army and some other things like medical issues, but there is still a chance of me getting in, if the british army fails then I am thinking of going to america as I know someone who will sponsor me for a green card and I could attempt to join the army there, but now a medical problem has popped up and if it is too bad i wouldnt be eligible to join the us army. I want to do something exciting in my life and do something that not only helps people but that can potentially save a life.we were only given one life and I want to dedicate my life to a good cause and to live an exciting life. But this all seems to be going down the drain and I don't know what to do with my life. I guess I want to be a somebody and I also know that if the army doesn't work I will end up going down a dark spiral of depression, I used to be a bad person and I've sinned a lot but I want to save people from some of the horrible things the world has to offer but at the same time I want an exciting life and travel a lot, the army offered me all that but that's possibly going down the drain. I don't know what to do.

As I want to give you a hug!
honestly the best thing you can do is stay positive, easier said than done I know! But don't worry until it actually happens and in the mean time start doing a hobby, join a group do Something. I know it sounds stupid but having a sense of purpose is important as well as a focus.
also look in to options for gaining an education, if that is what you want. I'm not sure of the options in the US but I am sure there must be some and it could give you the confidence you need.
Basically stay positive and things will get better, good luck!

Thank you, I kinda need a hug the thing is, I could live an exciting life If I went back to how I used to be, but that would make me a bad person and I wouldn't be helping anyone, infact I would end up ruining other people's lives, so I do have a choice of excitement, but to be honest I'd rather have no life at all than to ruin an innocent persons life again. I know this sounds stupid and I don't mean this in a dramatic hollywood movie kind of way, but I just want to dedicate my life to helping people and actually saving people/someone, with all the bad there is in this world, and all the bad things I done I feel like it is my destiny to do something great in this world. But if I cannot fulfill that destiny then I will spend the rest of my life being a failure.

Then don't! Why not start volunteering one day a week with a charity? It's rewarding and good experience too!
