Every single individual in this world has a very specific task; a task which can only be fulfilled by that individual soul.
Your friend has his own mission, he cannot make up for your mission. Don't be worried that your friend will ever steal your mission, for if he does then it wasn't your mission to begin with!
Your mission is your mission, and only your mission. No one can take your mission or make up for your incomplete mission.
A good thing and on the same token a bad thing---no one can steal your mission from you: peace of mind.
Yet you can steal your mission from yourself.
God has plans for this world, for if you don't complete your task no one else can, and this world has been left with a void.Michael S., Age 17 --- New York
