You are 13 and you’re thinking about what to do next. This is great. A lot of people only in their 40s start to think about this. So you have a head start.
If you watch a lot of YouTube videos, you know how to use the Internet. This is your strength.
If you feel unhappy about that the closest people you have don’t appreciate you, that you don’t have any friends, don’t despair.
You will find new friends, friends that are worthy of you. And you will do this by building your own platform online and empowering yourself.
Think about this: there are millions of people who are in a similar situation like you, who are suffering, who are homeless but want to be happy and succeed in life.
Share your life story as it unfolds on the web, in particular on your blog and on Quora and Medium or other places online where your future readers congregate. Answer people’s questions about the struggles that they’re having.
If you don’t have a computer right now, go to the library and use their computers.
At first nobody will notice you, nobody will pay any attention, nobody will know you even exist. You will want to stop. But you have to continue to write.
After some months some people will start to follow you, some will laugh at your problems, at the way you are living. Your mind will scream at you that this is foolish. Ignore everybody and continue to write.
After some years some people will try to argue with you and fight your opinions. You will feel like you’re losing the battle, at this point you will have invested many months and years in your writing so it will be very painful and will seem unfair. You will want to quit everything but you have to continue to write.
And then the time will come after long years of sharing your ideas, sharing your ups and downs, all of it, sharing your life online, sharing your inspiration to others when you look back and you will see that hundreds and even thousands of people are following your lead.
You will feel appreciated, happy and empowered. That’s when you will think you’ve made it. But make no mistake. The journey never ends.
You have to continue to write.
And share your art.
Let me know if this helps.
