So raise your hand if you have ever stressed about your future? Many hands rose correct? This is a common fear among many. Since we are born we are raised to think about our future and what we want to be when we grow up. I know as I grew up I wanted to be so many things, and at 25, I am still not sure what I want to do with my life, and I have many fears about it, stressing me out and preventing me from enjoying things. But in this day and age, it is a very common thing to worry about the future and how to make a living. Sure these are things that should be thought about, but these aren’t things that should prevent you from enjoying your life.
NO idea whether I actually want to stay in this field, if it actually interests me at all. Because I’ll tell ya, there are many classes I have to take in my program that I do not like and bored the heck out of me. For instance I am currently in a MIS information class and I have barely learned anything, and I know I won’t be using most of it in the future, and after that I have the dreaded accounting 1 class. But back to what I am going to do with my life, I have no set plan, I am considering marketing, and other things, but when I actually think about it…..I truly don’t know.
“Forced” to continue right away by families, and to not waste money, they jump into a field that they aren’t 100 percent sure about.
FINALLY get my degree. But I spend quite a bit of time worrying about where my future lies, where I will be working, how much I will make and how everything these days is expensive, and it’s only going up. I even worry about college and how much it is, but I remind myself that it is necessary and that I don’t see myself getting very far without a degree.
Since I worry about what career I will end up in and how much I will make, I worry that I will never be able to get a house, a nice car, will I be able to travel and see things that I have always wanted to see. These are all unknown answers and things I should not constantly stress about and worry about it, everything happens for a reason and everything will work out. Being almost 25 makes me really think how I only have five years until I am 30 and it’s going to go by in a blink of an eye. I feel like I should be farther in my life, more established, I feel as society makes it as though at my age I should be set in my career, established. This makes me wish that I would have gone to college right after high school so I could have graduated with my class, but that is not how my life panned out, it wasn’t meant to be. I get extremely jealous when I see people I graduated with graduating college and now have a job and a career, and that is something I want so badly. I am working on teaching myself to relax and just push forward because I am moving forward, I am going to school to work towards my degree which will open more doors for me, and give me a better chance to get a good job that pays well. Everything will work out and I will forever stand by the quote that my mom once said to me, “everything happens for a reason.”
