Recently, I just graduated from college with my Bachelor’s in Psychology, going in to the whole college thing I knew that I wanted to help other people and Psych was my best option. I could learn about myself and why I do the things I do and the same for others. I always found it fascinating. Now, that I graduated, I’ve learned that I do not want to be a therapist but I still have this urge to help people. But I convinced myself that I had no idea what I really wanted to do with my degree.
I kept ignoring these “urges,” they would hit me dead in the face but I would push it off. I still very much wanted to help people but didn’t know how. With a BA in Psych you won’t get very far in the job field so I’ve thought multiple times about getting my Masters in something different, just didn’t know what.
My friend let me borrow her book, I Am That Girl by Alexis Jones, it is a woman who empowers other women to believe in themselves and their dreams. It’s amazing, if you get the chance to read it, you should. But it has helped me find my voice and my dream. My dream is so empower others, just like she did, but how? I don’t want to write a book because my chapters would be all over the place, not a therapist, and it dawned on me WORD PRESS. DUH. I paid for the sight I might as well use it to my advantage. Today is the day I am going to make my private entries present and I will begin to write about the day to day events that have impacted me and try to see the good or give myself advice. That way, the reader who could be going through something similar can benefit as well.
My next post will be about my struggles finding out what I wanted to do.
