confused about what to do with my life - July 23rd 2009, 03:40 AM

I know im only 15 and im only in 10th grade. But I really want to figure out what I want to do with my life. It seems like everybody aleardy know what there gonna do and im the only one that dosent know.

I think psychology is really intersting but cant see myself as a consuler.
I love little kids.
And just recently I've figured out that I want to do something in ministery. What though no clue.

So do you guys know of a job that involve all of those?

It just kinda hit me I want to figure everything out including what im gonna do as my carrer.

I'm sure everyone's ideas about what they want to do in life will change a million times over, I know mine has. You shouldn't worry yourself, at least you have an idea of the feild you want to major in right? Majoring in psychology doesn't mean that you have to be a counsellor, there's many branches of careers that psychology can give you. You're 15, I'm 17 coming up 18 and I still have no clue, my mind is constantly changing. I bet even some people that are even in uni have no idea what they want to do.

A little in-depth to my choice. I started off when I was younger wanting to be a teacher, or a gym teacher. Then I changed my mind to a Paramedic, until I was hit with my bad knee injury, so then I went to ECE (early childhood education), but now I realized I don't want to be in a day care.. so I'm now stuck between Child youth counselor, and EA (Educational assistant). So you have PLENTY of time to think of something, As I just graduated high school, and I don't fully know what I want to do.

You have plenty of time and I'm sure circumstances might change your mind on things a couple of times... I wanted to do it all and yet I gradded young so I couldn't go to college to do bartending because I was only 16... I didn't want to wait 3 years for college so I tried to figure something else you... believe me its a path that's travelled by often, and just because you pick a career now doesn't mean that's what you're going to be doing in 10 years.
