Since I was a little girl, I've always been told what to do, which direction to go to and no matter what, you just have to do it. For example like, elementary school, primary school & high school and now, I finally have a choice to choose what happens next. Unfortunately that isn't really always the case, growing up with protective parents, you don't really have much choice because they've practically chose your pathway to the life you'll be living for the rest of your life, but I don't blame them as they're just trying to be protective and they want the best for you. Usually, parents like these will expect you to deliver and if you don't, they will be very angry and disappointed in you & as for yourself, you'll find it so heartbreaking because seeing your parents being disappointed in you is probably the worst feeling in the world. I know how that feels.
Nowadays, everyone says "Follow your dreams, just do what you want to do! It's your life." Hm well, it's definitely easier said than done. There's a chinese saying that my dear friend told me over breakfast this morning which says "不要把兴趣当饭吃" which means that "Don't use your interest or hobby to make a living". The whole point of this saying(I guess) is to say that going something you're really passionate about(something that is not professional) and living it, it is much riskier than the professional jobs like doctors, lawyers, accountant and so on. Going after your interests and hobby definitely have a huge price to pay and the failure weighs higher than the professional ones. Then again, when will you ever know that it is not the right choice until you put yourself out there? This question can only be answered if you really did try.
Life, not only it is filled with surprises, but also filled with tons of questions on what is right and what is wrong.
