Life & Stuff, My Teenage Struggle

I need a plan 

I don’t want to wake up one day hating myself because I made all the wrong decisions. Do you get what I mean? Your life path has taken a different route because you didn’t choose the right course and you feel like you’ve reached a dead end. Now, you don’t know where to turn to next. I really don’t want to be in that position. In fact this scares me, I fear that one day I’ll wake up and hate everything I’m doing.

How do people do it? Waking up to a job they hate and having to do it because they have no other choice. I can’t imagine living this way. Seriously though, people who have to live this way must be really strong, the money must really be motivating them whether it’s just to keep a roof over their head or to provide for their families, put food on the table.
Times are tough. Someone said to me liking the job doesn’t matter as long as it pays well. Another person said to me everyone hates their job that’s life but how are you supposed to live a fulfilling life when you’re not even finding enjoyment in it?

I need guidance. Direction. Answers.  

I need help 😭

  1. Sigh. We all need help. I don’t really think anyone has it figured out. It’s the very lucky few that manage to do what they love for a living and be successful at it. Sure they can write all the motivational books and How-To guides once they’ve made it but for every success story, there’s a thousand failures. So you just power through. If you decide you’d rather be happy than secure, then by all means, quit doing what you hate and start doing what you love and hope it works out. There’s no set guide to living life; you just do.

  2. The way I see it is I picked a uni course that will lead me to a job that intrest and excites me. I don’t know what the pay is and I don’t care. A job is something you will be doing for the rest of your life, so do something you are passionate about. Find something you could spend hours talking about without getting bored and do that. You may not be rich, but you will be happy and that is what matters

  3. It’s so hard to make all these decisions. I don’t know. Is the honest answer to your questions. I don’t know how people do jobs they hate. I guess they just have to. They have no other choice. That’s why we try our hardest at school, so we can have the greatest choice possible. Everything will work out okay.

  4. I think when it comes to following the “right path”, it’s truly impossible to get it right every single time, and you should definitely weigh up the pros and the cons for things but ultimately, if something is going to happen, it will. When it comes to choosing a job, it’s important to look at likability as well as the financial support it provides you. But it’s important to try as hard as you can in school so you can keep your options open, which is what I’m doing. The average life expectancy is what? Around 80 or so? So even if one day you wake up and feel like you’ve made the wrong choice, you are likely to have plenty of time left to change that and get to where you want to be. My mum is 38 and only now training to become a teaching assistant in primary schools, so it really never to late. You want a certain job? Go for it. Work for it. If it turns out to be something you don’t enjoy 10 years down the line, you may have been smart and kept your options open. Aaand I just realized that I’m writing a mini essay… well then x

    1. Thank you so much for commenting! And you are absolutely right, I’m still 18 at the end of the day. I can’t expect to have my whole life planned out because usually life never works that way anyway haha. I’m definitely going to continue to work hard, I know exactly who and what I want to be. I hope you have a lovely day xxx
