I was born in a very strict and competitive family, I feel that my relationship with my sisters was a little tough growing up. The idea of being given a choice was a privilege which I understood much later in my life. However, career choice for me was decided by my family on my behalf. My father wanted me to take Science as my major and become an engineer. And I did become one, and right after college, I got a job at a prominent MNC in Pune. After a couple of months of joining, I felt that I was not at all passionate about the job. I felt like I was stuck in a trap. I used to contemplate about quitting the job and do something that I love, but then again I didn’t have the courage to do it. I realized that there was a lack of confidence which stems from my upbringing and that I don’t have anyone to fall back upon for support and guidance.
I have always been a people pleaser. It has hampered my growth as a person in many ways, because of which I never got to live my life the way I wanted to. Like a bird, soaring high above the sky, not caring about the destination, just me and my dreams, the ones I saw with open eyes. We had money, and family obligations had never been a subject of concern, I would have loved to be a part of Tourism and Event Management Sector. Maybe, that wouldn’t have paid me as well as IT does, but it would have been what I truly wanted. It’s not that I hate my job, I just feel that I would be better off following my heart. Family is the top priority for me, but it would have been easier to share the warmth of my heart if I had been selfish for my goals and a little more confident about my abilities.
