How does one truly know if they have a vocation to married or religious life? Some people are simply lucky in knowing what they want or what they are called to be. I am not one of them. Ever since I can remember whenever I thought about being married or being called to religious life I never felt a strong pull towards either. (Actually when I was very young I was completely against so much as the thought of ever being a nun. I’ve now moved to ‘open minded’… Somewhat. ) Nothing has changed since. If I were to consider either choice I still feel indifferent.
So maybe the better question would be, how does one discern what they are called to do in life? I’ve always had interests in certain subjects, and posses my own gifts unique to me, but I’m always unsure how to apply then and best serve God. Anyone have any thoughts on the subject or experience? Advice would be greatly appreciated.
