  1. By trying new things to get me away from my crippling depression.

  3. I on exchange to Hong Kong and travelled through Asia for four months. Easily the most life-changing time in my life, and I came back eager to dive into my passion.

    1. So did you switch paths or just kept trying?

    2. I gave it a sincere effort to stick with my original intentions for coming out to Ontario to attend university for a few years after the incident. During this time I realized that I was very good, if not one of the best, for what I was trying to achieve, but looked at the future and asked if I would really be happy once I succeeded in overcoming all the obstacles. The answer was no. But during this time I found another path that truly interested me and I found I could help expand the knowledge of for everyone rather than just myself. So I decided to go that route and have not regretted it.

    3. +1 for sure. You learn from your mistakes and failures to become a better person. And along the way you may find yourself finding something you love to do or your passion.

  5. After failing a required course for the program that I had originally thought was my passion, I reevaluated what I was doing and decided to try something else. Now I am happy and loving what I am doing.

  6. I did Katimavik, a now-defunct youth volunteer service program. I volunteered for three months with a non-profit I fell in love with and haven't looked back since. My advice: get out there and volunteer with a bunch of different places that interest you.

    1. Don't slave away working for free for someone else. The only way you're going to find your "passion", if you have one, is by doing things you want, not participating in someone else's feel-good altruistic bullshit. I would suggest reading about something that interests you and go from there.

  7. Try different things - go out and enjoy life. There is no way or step by step guide to find your passion...sometimes it just comes about by your experiences and trying new things. It takes times but when you find it, it will be worth it. Good luck!
