This is a question that most of us ask ourselves. We explore different classes starting at least in middle school.
We can choose an elective, drama, orchestra, music, and sometimes art. For many of us this is the first introduction we have with an instrument. Most likely we get to choose what we play. I chose clarinet.
Throughout 6th-8th grades we find what we enjoy doing. This may take years but it is often a process. In high School we fine tune our interests and eventually go onto college to a degree studying what we love best.
And then adulthood hits and we keep on going with what we love doing.
There may come a point where what you love doing is no longer what is able. You need to redefine your interests and come up with a plan.
You may make mistakes but you learn from them in order to keep moving forward.
Unless it compromises your safety, do it anyways! Nothing should we holding you back.
I’m both 31 and 11 for about another week. During high school I wanted to join the military and be a math teacher. My path was looking good until the bus hit me.
Bye Military and bye teaching. Math was still an option and after getting my degrees in accounting, I got a great job. I made mistakes there just as everyone does when they first start but I learned from them and that is what is count.
I’m now on a new path and trying to figure out what the hell I want to do. I have found a couple new talents, pissed a few people off, and pushed a few people away that I regret doing.
What counts is that I have learned from these mistakes. You should learn from these mistakes as well! Sorry if I ever pissed you off or disagreed with you in some way.
Where do I belong?
