When did it become necessary to know what you want to do for the rest of your life at such a young age?
If it is not expected of you to know when you graduate high school it surely is when you are in college. Oh yeah, and it is expected from society that of course you will go to college. For the most part.
Well now you’re in college and you think you know what career you want to strive for.
What if you explore outside of that field and take some different classes and you just meet people that inspire yoy and you take on a different interest?
It might be a smooth transition onto that desired field over the first-pick field but it might not be and it probably won’t.
It won’t be if your first field of choice was something you thought you wanted to do for a long time. Also, if your whole family already expects you to be whoever you told them you will be when you were 9.
Unfortunately I am stuck in this position. Although I think I know what I want to do with my life now, after some coincidental events in my life and keeping an open mind, I am still just as lost as when I decided my always planned major in college is not what I want to learn about at all.
Planning too far ahead in life is what makes me wonder if I realistically want to do this for the rest of my life?
I want to become a flight attandant because I love flying. I love meeting new people and I love the airline industry and that whole lifestyle.
I don’t know if this is going to be something I do for a few years while I try and attain my bachelor’s degree still or if this will become my career.
I don’t even know which option I would prefer. All I know is I want a family later in life or at least I don’t want to be alone. Is that possible if I follow my heart now and pursue my passion and go where my heart belongs or does that put my other dream in jeopardy?
This frustration is due to the pressure of society which spills onto my parents of course and then the fact that planning ahead into the future could be useful but also it is what is stopping me from peaceful decision making.
Ughhhh. How to deal with life?
