wanted to be a mounted policewoman when I grew up, but didn't make the height, so went into the secretarial and finance world. can't really thinik about what I would like to do instead for a job, but I tend to studby different subjects as a hobby
When I was younger I wnated to be a pathologist, but got talked out of it. I would have found a medical degree difficult. I still take an interest in unusual crimes, etc.
I never even mentioned wanting to be a film director, but I would have had the wrong attributes for that. I'm too bone idle. I like watching films, though.
I ended up a computer-programmer by accident. I don't know whether I truly chose to do it. I don't think I was the greatest programmer on earth. Basically, I hate being put on the spot, having to find the answer to questions when I just don't know the answer - all part of being bone idle, I suppose.
Now, I haven't a clue what I'd like to do - I don't think I've ever known myself - surely most people know themselves? Everyone else I've ever met seemed to.
Feels like I've spent so much time being what other people thought suitable, I've lost what I wanted, and can't find it anymore.
Nothing else to say - didn't mean to go on!
If you don't like something, change it - REMEMBER - YOU'RE NOT A TREE!
i think everyone loses themselves more that once in their life time omj. even though we love our kids,i have felt like im existing for everyone else. i had a time where i knew that if it ME was a plce id been to,i hadnt a hope finding my way back. i was getting chest pains,pains in my arms,and what i found out to be panic attacks.i thought i was having a heart attack on time and after tests was told it was a stress attack.very scarey.
after asking a lot of questions about my life style,the doctor said i was at risk of more of these because i was trying to be all things to everyone.
i had counselling for a while,but left it cos i knew i had to get harder,less of a doormat.
that was 8 years ago,i still do too much sometimes,but for the sake of my health and my sanity,i say no a lot more often.

and its perfect for all of us
You know, well I am just like all of us, and in my heart of heart, I care so much for people and what is going on. I am lucky, so far, and it can all go wrong at any stage, but I am do-er in other words, not just beer talk, (he says half cut)
But any one, can better themselves, and not just through eduction, help a charity, do a new sport, find a local find a ghost group, ... all of us, with a little motivation, can achieve what we want.
