We live in societies where many grew up following already laid down believes and get into the stereotypical way of doing things. And once you find yourself following another course, there’s a problem with you. You’re simply being different.
It doesn’t matter how many people are involved in doing what “everyone does“, it suffices that you stand out different, singled out amongst many.
When I was growing up, I always had the passion to read Mass communication at the University. But I was found “ridiculous” even by my parents…. This sounds kind of awkward because parents are to be our number 1 source of support. But that wasn’t the case for me.
I found myself motivating myself to study what I wanted because there was no one to do so for me. It musn’t be about people!!!. Its not about pleasing people, doing what they want. Its about YOU. What your passion drives at!
So its OK if you’re staring up that project and everyone’s telling you it makes no sense. To me, it makes more sense beacause everyone else is doing the ordinary but you are doing the extraordinary. Its a gem to be extraordinary🎆
I live in a country where employment upon completion of studies is as rare as water in a desert. The programme I so much desire to study was one hell of a profession which was pretty hard to get a job. It was a risk I took. But I followed my passion.
Times when I felt the weight of fear on me with no one by my side telling me I did the right thing, I often burst into tears. Crying became the order of the day in my life at that point. Because, I felt standing alone. I never knew then that I was just being different!!!!
So many thoughts ran through my mind. But I remained firm on my decission. And today, I reap the fruits of being persistent in my course! And chosen to be different.
Its risky to take up risks but it is worth it🌸Wherever we find ourselves, we should build and create.
Opportunities will never step at your doorpost! You rather make creative steps towards them.
If you find yourself in a broken situation, you build. You are special and wonderful just the way you are….
Love and cheers🌸💕
