I'm so confused on what I wanna do in life, I'm 21 years old with only a year of college, and just so confused on everything. I feel so overwhelmed cause I wasn't taught anything from my family.

Sounds like you need some life skills.

Find yourself a mentor. Someone who you want to be like when you grow up. You don't need career advice, you need mentorship from a decent human being and that will help you become what you will become. Don't expect that you'll ever know what you want to do in life until your 40s or 50s, but a good mentor can help point you in the direction of your talents. Once you try out enough new things you'll discover what you like and uncover what's important to you. You're never going to have have some moment where you have an epiphany and discover the perfect job that will make you happy. It's a puzzle that you slowly piece together.

my recommendation, reenlist and see about going to college. Use the GI Bill, TA and everything to get your degree. once you have that piece of paper many more doors will open.

CPL (Join to see) Your profile has you in the Reserves. What is your civilian job and do you like it? Continue your education by taking required courses until you can decide exactly what you want to do for a career. Do your research, talk to career counselors, etc. Decide on a course of action, plan, make goals, and carry out your plan. Plans are subject to change, so make course corrections as needed. You will make mistakes along the way, but you will learn from them. Good luck.
