Dear Bachi, why do parents choose our lives’ paths?
Why do parents have to decide the courses of our life? I foolishly obeyed when my parents insisted I take up architecture. Though I passed, I was hopeless at the job.
So I did my MBA hoping to get out of this mess. I’m still in it. Not liking it even though this was my choice. Or was I just trying to prove a point to God know whom? Should I start my own business? Now I am quite FOMO. Seeing that I’m still drifting at 29, when my friends are all settled in life.
Dear Off Course,
What’s wrong with you? Stop passing the buck, and pull yourself together instead of running from one professional course to another like a headless chicken.
You are certainly sounding bird-brained.
If you haven’t been able to get anything right so far, what makes you think you’ll be able to manage a business of your own? It seems like just another excuse not to get serious about earning a living. Pull up your socks and get down to standing on your own feet.
