I don’t know what I want to do for a career. I know 23 is still a very young age to know what I want to do as a career, but I would have thought that by now I would at least have an incline. I want to set myself goals but at the moment I feel like I can’t do that as I’m struggling to figure out what I want to do.
I spent 4 years at university and managed to come out with a BSc (Hons) Management, 2:1, which of course I am absolutely over the moon with. But a year after graduating, I’m questioning pretty much everything, especially my degree choice. I started university studying Modern Languages and graduated in Management and in all honesty, I have no idea why it was Management I changed to.
I have done so many online ‘personality’ tests to try and get a gist of what I’d be interested in doing but they are the most inaccurate tests I have ever done. Everybody keeps asking me what I’m passionate about and I’m struggling to even answer that question. I absolutely LOVE helping people and want to make a change to peoples’ lives but in what way, I have no idea.
I’m passionate about mental health but I don’t know if that is something I want to do as a career. I’d love to be able to help people but I find it quite difficult knowing what to say to people. I also struggle with my own mental health, so at the moment, I don’t think it’s something I want to do. I don’t want to pursue something until I’m at least 90% sure it’s something I really want.
This would also mean retraining or studying again. I reeeaaally don’t want to have to study again because I have no attention span and 4 years of university was absolutely plenty for me.
I’m getting to the stage now that I’m getting quite restless and want to know exactly what I want to do. I always need a challenge as much as I love my current role, I want to find something that really challenges me.
I don’t know what to do with myself.
Do you ever feel like this?
