Career and Practicality

I'm at that point in my life where I have to make decisions about a career path. It's a classic having a family that pushes you to study their choice of degree that they know would earn more. I was brave enough to decide and pursue the course I wanted but it's been tough looking for a job related to it. I dont want to hear them say I told you so and stuff like that. So right now, I'm just isolating myself to think more. I know I'll have to face these hardships anyway but I felt the need to vent things out. Even if I liked my choice, it doesn't mean that I won't suffer in the process. I just don't need another negativity saying how wrong I am.

Some people mean well when they offer unsolicited advice and others are just negative people who are looking to bring you down.  Sometimes it's hard to tell which is which.  I wish you tons of luck on your job search.  I hope you land somewhere amazing!

It's a tough spot to be in, so I sympathize.  Have you seen this journal entry https://hospiceslv.immortum.com/journal/464/?  It's an interesting take on choosing a career that is enjoyable versus one that is well-paying.
