When we speak of careers, we speak of something that is established and worthwhile. I believe mine isn’t going to be as patterned and as fast as somebody else’s, ‘wanna know why? Because I’m preparing for it. I’m paving a way for it. I never had the chance way back in College because of the mistakes I made. I made the wrong choices, for myself. And so… Here I am.
Regardless, I do not want to really regret about it. I think a part of it was for something better – and if my journey towards my target career may go slow – I want to enjoy and make the best out of it. It’s pretty hard though, as the people around me may or cannot really understand what I really want in life. But that’s fine. I’d rather work on my explanation, and make them see it – than explain in words.
As a kid, I have always been obedient. In the sense that I wasn’t really able to decide on my own. And when I got older, it became pretty hard – because I tend to ask the people around me before I decide on certain things. And I can feel it right now – when I’ve decided to make my own path, and take a step on it – it definitely made me feel lost and alone. I’ve actually wondered, “Am I on the right track? Am I doing it right? Why do I feel that this is wrong? Should I continue going forward?”. But I’ve realised that just because the road felt long and lonely, doesn’t mean it is wrong.
Sometimes, it is just a part of the challenge if we want to get what we want. Because in time, people will understand. Your career, on the other hand, will never wait for you unless you make a move for it. So, move it.
