Question:Please don't lose hope if no one messages you. I always keep a lookout on your blog to read the inspiring messages you give people. Though I may not have problems now, I may in the future and I'm sure so will many others. I won't forget about you because you've been so meaningful. - Anonymous
Thanks, guess even I need a little hope sometimes :) It could also be a good thing that no one is asking anything, meaning that everyone’s hopefully doing well! And I need to remember to check back here more, but thank you thank you THANK YOU! For this message. It helped me keep my hope in this website, and the sense that someone’s still listening :)
Question:I know animal related stuff does not have a very high salary - it's around 45k a year, maybe more, maybe less. I'm not really into being a vet, I'm not sure why. But I feel like he'll be super disappointed in me because every time I try to bring up another major like computers or interior design (some of my other interests) he shoots them down. I just feel overly pressured and stressed and I'm not sure what to do. - Anonymous
I think that you should follow your dreams. Although your dad would want to see you become a pharmacist just like him, he’ll support whatever you choose to do because really and truly, all he wants to see is that his little girl is happy. When he’s constantly nagging you, and it may seem like he’s shooting down every idea, don’t take it so harshly. He’s just trying to make sure that your headed down the right path. I’m sure you could ask him about when he decided to become a pharmacist and what his parents said, things wouldn’t be so different. Everyone goes through these kinds of tough decisions in life that can make us or break us,
"If you’re ever caught between what makes you happy and what other people want, always go with what makes you happy, unless you want everyone but you to be happy.”
Don’t stress so much on what to do with your life. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s good that you have plans of being successful in life and you’re already setting high standards for yourself, so am I. It’s hard nowadays to decide on what to do because there’s so much out there and so little time. It would help to start researching the fields you would want to be going into and maybe talking to some companies and what not. Take initiative. When your dad sees that you really want this, then everything will fall into place.
I can relate. In highschool, my dad wanted me to join sports like he did, but for obvious reasons I’m not much of an athlete, but I LOVE band. So I joined, and sure it took LOTS and LOTS of investment in time and money, and additional stress along with school, but when he saw how happy I was performing out there he began to love it as much as I do.
If there’s one thing I learned from band, it’s that whatever you do in life, do it with your whole heart and nothing less, so win or lose, you walk off that field with your head held high knowing that you gave it your all.
Choices are everything, but most importantly, they’re YOURS. Don’t ever forget that.
Good luck in life and I hope for the best for you and so does your father. So message me in a couple years and tell me how successful you’ve become and all the amazing things you’ve done.
With great love and hope, Your Friendly Neighborhood Anon
