Well I'm pretty much have the same problem. Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a vet, there was no question about it, that's just what I always wanted to be. But this year I thought about it and I was thinking "I don't like science, and I don't like math so why am I going to be a vet?".
I don't want to take science and math all the way through highschool, so I've realized that being a vet is really not what I want to do. I like animals but that just isn't enough.
Anyways I'm near the end of grade 10 and I have no idea what I want to do as a career when I'm older. It bothers me too, but hon you have 3 or 4 years of highschool left, which is plenty of time to figure out what you want to do with your life.
About your friends, the only thing you can do is get new friends. Seriously, you don't want to associate yourself with people who are just going to hurt you and make you feel bad about yourself.
And about life, well hun, It's pretty much all about living your life to the fullest. Just have fun doing what you like to do, and you won't have to worry about why we were put here. Obviously everyone dies, but lots of people have great lives, you just have to figure stuff out, and live life to the fullest (that's my opinion), because I used to think the same way you did. But then I think about all the things that make me so happy and I realize I don't have to care about why we're here, I'm just going to enjoy what I have, and do the things that I enjoy and make me happy.
So you're... 14? 15? You've got -forever- to decide. You don't even have to go to college right away after high school- or ever, for that matter. A lot of people spend their lives doing different things, changing their careers all through life. People go BACK to college to change careers all the time.
Unless your parents are pressuring you to decide now, that's a different story. If they are, tell them to back off- it's your life, and you're still figuring things out.
I hope you find something you're really passionate about, someday. There's really no rush.
