The future is very confusing for teenagers, they have a lot of choices to make. There are a few teenagers that have it all figured out, but there are a lot who don’t, like me.
When we were kids we would be asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and most of us would say Princess, Ninja, Superhero, Doctor, etc. But what we didn’t know back then was how hard it was actually going to be to decide what we wanted to do because this decision can either make us a success or a failure.
With that in mind we decide to go for something that will make us rich, but sometimes that’s not what we want, therefore we are not happy in life. Some people take up Business in college because that is a 4 year course and they just want to get out of school. But that’s not how it’s supposed to be, we should do what makes us happy whether or not it will make us rich or get us out of school as soon as possible.
For me right now my interest is in Biology, so I might take that in college, but I’m not sure what job I can get with that because I do not want to be a teacher.
What I’m trying to say is that don’t pressure yourself with the future, just do what you love and be happy with your life because like what Mr. Alan Watts said it is better to live a short life and do what you love rather than live a long life and not do what you love.
