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.

  1. Hey Tessa,
    Your post is so relatable for me I get those questions everyday since I started high school and it stressed me out because I had no idea what I wanted to do. I did not realize what I wanted to do until the beginning of this year. And I’m still stressing over because it is almost time to apply to college, I have no idea where I want to go. At this point all I want is to get into college. I feel like the year has gone by so fast I just can not keep up this has been one of the most stressful years I have had in school. But I am also really excited for what the future holds.

  2. Hey Tessa, I feel like many people can relate to this post! We’re always stressing about getting our homework done and keep our grades up in high school to be able to get into college. We think all four years that we’re in high school about what we’re going to do after we graduate. Some people want to continue with college and others continue life with whatever they find will make them happy. My parents always want to know what my decisions for the future are but I don’t know what answer to give sometimes. Do you think that if you have kids, you’ll ask them often on what they want to do in college or how they want to live their life?


    • Hi Sibel
      Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. Honestly, of course I will be asking my future kids if they know what what career they want to go into. However, I won’t push them to have a decision by a certain time. Some people find their calling in life when they are kids, and some don’t know till they are in college. There are so many career out there that we don’t even know about. I think whatever we choose, we should choose wisely. What we choose is going to be what we do for most of our life. So no pressure but, I hope you find your calling soon!
