I have been working as a registered nurse since 2008, and already have been an ex-school nurse for two years and four months to be exact, yet I have always felt that something is missing. I also had experience in working in the hospital but every single day that I had worked there seemed to be a burden to me.

Nursing profession wasn’t my choice but my mom’s. No matter how I keep on telling her before that it wasn’t the course that I wanted, she would let me choose between continuing my studies while taking up nursing or just stop doing so. Because of my dream of finishing my studies with a degree. I decided to pursue nursing and I was able to pass the board examination as well. But my journey just started.

I didn’t know that in a short time, I would come to realize that I am no longer happy with what I am doing. Until one day, I had seen the beauty of being a paramedic, and started dreaming of being one. But it requires a lot of effort and money as well for me to able to pursue it. Will I be able to achieve my dream, or just continue living unhappy with my work? Well, I guess I would just let time guide me, and my dreams to give me the courage to achieve it.

  • That kind of feeling was exactly the same as what I felt.. I was really unhappy.. Not until I decided to pursue what I really wanted.. You already pursued the course your mom wants you, I guess its time that you do yourself a favor..
