In this drama monologue, Elena is coming to terms with finding her life’s purpose. She talks to her friend’s Mom and asks for help.
Elena: I’m in college but I still don’t know what I’m doing there. I’m so lost. I’m going because my parents are forcing me to go…it’s not that I don’t want to go, I do but I don’t know what I’m really going for right now…I don’t know who I am or who I’m supposed to be.
I look at my friends, like your daughter and they all seem to know what they want. I don’t know why it’s so difficult for me. Nothing seems to make me excited or happy or if something does it’s only temporary or there really isn’t any good money to be made from it.
I hate it. I hate this confusion.
I’ve tried so many different things but nothing sticks and I’m fearful of being a loser, like, I don’t want to be someone who spends a life that amounts to nothing.
My family is constantly on my back. My mother is always pushing me…I need help. I need help figuring out my purpose.
