One of my best friends in college is thinking about giving up with one of my classes and repeat it later. She’s thinking about changing her major and is a bit confused, since she still has to take a lot of math classes. Thing is, I think she loves what she’s doing right now and I think she might regret this decision later. My mom took that decision before. She had a good reason to abandon her career, since my grandpa was sick and she had to take care of him. She also says she was really tired and her study conditions were not the best. I’m sure she does not regret her decisions, but I wonder if she ever thinks: “what if?”
My mother loves science, as much or even more as I do. She knows a lot about what I’m studying and I can almost always use her as a reference. She never got back around to finishing her BA in Science and she was so close! She’s happy, though, and she became a teacher and got to help students to realize they wanted a career in Science. It’s actually amazing to have a teacher that inspires you and I love my mom got to be that for her students.
I actually have a point here. My point is that there’s no reason to give up your dreams… Unless it’s not your dream anymore. No matter if it’s a year or twenty years later, we all deserve happiness and to fulfill our destinies. Sometimes destiny is not what you expect, though, so if my friend wants to change her major because she likes Psychology better, then she should go for it! But if she is doing it to escape some harder classes, she should think it better. Escaping is never an option. We should face our challenges head on!
