I’m breaking out from all this stress and pressure and I hate it because I never get pimples so that’s when you know it’s real
Having parents who low-key expect you to know what you want to be and do for the rest of your life by the time you begin college is absolutely overwhelming. I’m nothing like my older siblings who excelled in everything and realized early on who they wanted to become. None of them say it, but I know they’re holding a standard for me. And that’s partly why I’m choosing pre-dental. I really do want to become a dentist. It’s the one career that has yet to sound unappealing to me and has made me feel confident in wanting to succeed in. But everyone has a calling in life and I don’t know if that’s mine. I’m just afraid to disappoint. Especially the people who have held out so much hope and love towards me from the very beginning. In the end I know that it’s whatever makes me happy, but let’s be honest here. It’s not all about happiness. It’s also about stability, commitment, wealth, and success. At least that’s how it is in my family. And I completely understand because all that my parents want is for my siblings and I to not go through life the way they did and to live the rest of our lives as comfortably as possible. And that’s what makes me want to make them so proud.
