Well let me start off by saying after i graduated HS i went to college (17 yrs old) trying to figure out what i wanted to do with my life and career. After taking classes that interested me weren’t something i wanted to do I dropped out. A semester later i enrolled at another college taking some more classes i thought i was interested in but figured out it wasn’t something i wanted to do i dropped out yet again. I took another semester off and thought long and hard at what i wanted to do. I thought about cosmetology, did some research and thought hey i can do this. So i enrolled and worked while going to school. Yet once again after attending many months it wasn’t something i wanted to do and dropped out and started working more. 4 years later and at the age of 25 i’m beginning to think what have i accomplished with my life and where am i going? I feel like my life is wasting away, no job (recently laid off), living with parents and fiancé supporting me off his unemployment.
My mom approaches me and tells me that if i decide to go to dental assistant school that she will pay for it. I talked to my fiancé about it and he feels that i shouldn’t do something just bcuz my mom had offered this to me. I just feel that i should take her offer and do it so that i have a career and its something that ive looked at before but never really thought about it as my career. I talked to my sister and she feels that if i truly want to do this then to go ahead and go for it but i will only fail if i allow myself to fail by not motivating/pushing myself to go/finish like the other times with college and cosmo school.
I hope you Bees can help me with this situation and give me your opinions/advice.
I’m so tired on sitting her on my bum thinking about my life as its passing me by. I dont want to be old and wrinkly by the time i do know what i want to do with my life. I’m tired of spending my parents money like i had done in the past trying to figure out my career and feel that maybe i should just do this and finish something for once.
