Journey of Life

Who decided your future? You? Or did you take up something that satisfied your parents' wishes?

Be careful of whom you aim to please with your actions. As Eries said,

In the end, I do not know if I’m happy because I truly am or I am trying to make people happy. Is making people happy, making oneself happy?

As much as your parents want you to succeed, make sure you yourself have an interest in what you will be studying. You do not follow a future others dictate - not even your parents - simply because they prefer you take it.

Take the time to go in-depth into what you plan to do later on in life. Study places to further your studies in your chosen field, find out what your course will be about, look up possible career opportunities. The Star newspaper offers occasional supplements about institutes of higher education in and out of the country.

Most importantly, don't go about making uninformed decisions, i.e. choose to be a singer merely because you want to be rich and famous like all of them on TV. If you can convince your parents that you truly have a passion for it, that you know your stuff and the possible risks, they will be more than happy to let you go for it.

    Beautiful poem, beautiful picture, beautiful concept... Great!

    Sometimes, making someone special happy, makes us happy too. But, as I always like to say, it really depends...

    Happiness comes in many forms. Some get it from helping others, some get it from having fun or just being with the ones they love. No matter what, happiness will always be around the corner if you look hard enough. (^__^)
