Ever since I was a child, I dreamed of becoming a doctor. In my teens, I thought I’d take up Law, like my father, but then felt that I still wanted to be a doctor more than a lawyer. But a year before graduating, I had to make up my mind on what course to take in college, and since my father passed away, I felt my mom would have a hard time paying for my tuition if I pursued being a doctor.
So I thought I’d try the next best thing, any course related to the medical field. Being a medical practitioner can still give me that fulfillment so I wanted to learn what Medical Technician jobs or Respiratory Therapy Technician Jobs entail.
I was able to encourage some of my friends to consider those courses too, but when I learned that they wanted to take the course because of the promise of working abroad, I didn’t pursue it. I’m one who is very close to my mom so I can’t even imagine leaving the country without her.
I took up another course and now have a stable 7-4 job, but somehow I still think, “What if I pursued being a medical practitioner?” Would I be more happy now? Then I look around me and think that I may not be as well-paid as them, but I’m very happy and content with my family here.
