Confused teen


I’ve always felt the desire to make a difference, help people, do something big for someone else, etc. I am only 16. I don’t know what I can do easily to accomplish any of this or where to even start! I’ve felt the want to do more more often latel and I want to act on it but I don’t know what to do. Any ideas?

I think it is awesome that you are willing to help someone in a big way! I wanna say thank you to you and to all who read this for just taking he time to help someone in need, I wish there were more people like you guys out in the world :)
Go online and look for nearby areas for which you can go to help the community (community service) it always makes me feel better after doing a few hours of it. Volunteer for things like helojg the homeless like giving them money or bringing them food, bring in cans of food to a church that may give to charity.
The internet is a good place to be if you want to make a difference. There are so many of us around here that someone is bound to want some help. The best thing is to help at home, find a way to make things better, happier. Walk around town, look for people that need help, or check the newspaper and see if any simple things are needed. Do random acts of kindness to random people, and that makes a huge difference in everyone's life.
Volunteering is a good place to start. Places that feed the homeless is very moving and useful to the community. Also mission trips make a big impact to that area, it show that place that people care and are willing to help. Be a listener on the chats here! Lastly, little acts of kindness can change a day for someone or a life! Good luck on your quest of kindness!
It is great to know that there are young people out there who dream of making this world a better place. Start small. Begin by doing simple yet kind deeds. Sometimes it is the little things that make a huge impact on people's lives. Examples: Hold the door for someone. Let the person behind you go ahead of you in line. Compliment a stranger. Write a thank you letter to your parents. Write a poem for someone who is special to you. Greet people you pass by. Anonymously send someone flowers. Help an elderly person walk across the street. Ask someone how they are doing and actually listen. There are many ways to show compassion and kindness toward others. The ones that I've mentioned above are just a few. May the Lord God bless you and guide you in fulfilling your dream to make a difference.
