I’m a victim of this so called epidemic of wanting a greater purpose in life rather than just working forever. While I do want to work and have a career, I want to know what career path fits me and what I’ll do to help improve whatever field I go into. I’m scared of being a robot and having no true happiness or calling.
This contradicts me believing that the universe has its own calling and its own set of rules and doesn’t really care about me 1 person out of 7+ billion. I’m scared that my life is going to be wasted. I’m a restless person and I’m always bored and I hate routines. I hate being stuck doing one thing over and over again, and this usually leads me to jump around from project to project or not finishing an assignment until I start another one because I hate repeditivity.
I’ve always found myself drawn to marketing, advertising, and social media. Before, I was Compsci and I thought that was what I wanted to do. I realized that my passion for programming wasn’t as strong as I thought and although I do enjoy it, it’s not what I want to do forever. I need to really know myself and become more self-aware and emotionally intelligent in order to reach my greatest potential and find what I truly want to do in life.
