People should take responsibility for their decisions regardless of their “success” in life.
My younger sister is in medical school. She chose to study medicine. Nobody forced her. Period. But it feels like the whole family is paying for her decision.
She is too busy to do housework.
Let’s follow her schedule.
She practically only has time for her studies. All she had to do was use study as an excuse. Hello miss! I have seen you watch YouTube videos when you could have been helping mum in the kitchen. Watching YouTube videos means you free right? Don’t tell me you want a break. First you got to pick your dream and now you get to pcik your break?! Life so good one huh. What about my time. I spend my free time on your portion of responsibilities because you were too “busy” . Can I pick my free time too?!
Look. I understand medicine is hard. That’s why it’s meant for really smart people right? Because these people can do more than just studying.
I’m happy for her but it’s very irresponsible of her that we all have to pay for her deicison.
If she wants to study medicine, shouldn’t she MAKE SURE she can and WILLING TO juggle her studies on top of other commitments? Life where got so easy one? Huh so good life ah. All you had to do is focus on your dreams. It seems to me she just wants what she wants. Anything else she just push to others.
Let me tell you. Fighting for your dreams, no matter how hard it is, is bliss. I think my younger sister had it preety good. Sure medicine is hard but that’s her goal. At least she didn’t have to pay for someone else’s deicison.
Sigh. If I don’t help, my mum will do everything herself. This got me thinking. Parents are hypocrites. They always love the most “successful” child the most. The one who helps them the most get overlooked because they take kids like these for granted. It is my job to help?! So it is not my sister’s job too? Note that I used the word successful and not smart. My younger sister is definitely not the smartest. My elder sister is much smarter but she is not a doctor.
With tuition and all, I don’t think doctors nowadays are the smartest people around. There are a few underdogs but most of them are just lucky enough to have financially stable families. My younger sister is an example. She is bad at math, physics and humanities. She is only good at bio. My elder sister learns music and she is way smarter. Music difficulty is super underrated. Its a really hard subject.
Parents should seriously wake up their idea. If my kid is studying medicine, I would make sure he at least wash the dishes on weekends. He jolly well remembers who made his dreams possible. You became a doctor not because you smart but because your family let it happen. There are so many smart people with family commitments that couldn’t persue their dreams.
