I’m a junior and I still haven’t decided what to do after high-school. I know I’m going to college, but I don’t know what degree I should take. I come from a long line of doctors and the pressure to become the same is huge, especially from my dad, he says that if I didn’t beome a doctor, I’d disappoint him real bad and it would be the hugest mistake of my life. I know I should listen to my parents and their advice, but I hate medicine and really don’t want to be like my parents or grandparents. It may seem cool to be a doctor, but I simply don’t like it. The pressure from my parents amd some of my friends is too much for me and is confusing me. Everytime I suggest another career to my parents they give me a huge lecture about what a mistake it would be not to be a doctor. Help, I really don’t want to diappoint my parents but I don’t want to be a doctor either.
