"Being called"

What does it mean when one feels "called" to do something? Quakers call it being "called by God". My beliefs make that not quite work for me. I don't know how to to reconcile my beliefs with my experience. Do people know what I'm talking about?

It's interesting to me what this ties into for you and I feel like it actually probably ties into those things for me too, I just didn't think about it that way, so thanks. I have trouble feeling my emotions too sometimes, and I have trouble balancing having the courage to act on things I feel strongly about with having patience and avoiding conflict, and believing that sometimes not getting involved is an OK way of dealing with things (I know we've butted heads over this particular issue more than once, and I'm not sure I was right).
