Pressure to Know Your Future


What do you want to be when you are older? And What college do you want to go to? We all get asked these questions when we are kids, teenagers or before we graduate high school.

There are people who know what they want to be, where they want to go and what they have to do to reach their goal. However, there are many of us that don’t have a clue. I have heard a lot of college students that have changed their majors 2-3 times.

When people ask me this question, I usually don’t have an answer. I don’t know what I want to become and what field of work I want to go into. There are so many jobs out there, that I didn’t even know existed. I have been thinking about what I want to be for years now, but I am still not sure. My parents love to pressure me. They tell me that I should know what I want to be now, which drives me crazy.

It is good to know where you want to be. Nevertheless, those who don’t know shouldn’t panic. We will all eventually find a job that suits us and that we enjoy doing. Also remember, that it is your future and you decide what you want.
