While people are all excited about traveling in their own path after completing their graduation, it is frankly one of the most scariest part of life as well.
And very few are lucky enough to get the job, they wanted to do. However most often than not, people realise that after getting in to the job, it is not what they actually dreamt of.
The scenario becomes all the more worse when they have to relocate for their job, leaving home behind.
This is what the author in success.com tells happened in her life.
The author says that after landing in the job, she felt that she was working with one other person, who, like her, had just graduated college and was ready to save the world.
'But we didn’t know what we were doing. And we didn’t have any guidance. We were on the ground in the middle of nowhere, with no direction and no support,' she said.
The author said that she left six weeks after her arrival at the job.
'Not only had I picked the wrong job, I felt I had picked the wrong dream. The wrong goal. I didn’t know what was next. I couldn’t think past all the wrong decisions I made to get to this spot. I was starting over at 22, and it sucked,' she shares.
However, the author says that six years down the line, she has now got a job, what she did not think of, but which was true.
'I found a company that makes me want to come to work every day. And I found a new list of criteria for my dream job: money to pay my bills and pay down debt, enough freedom and time off to travel, the flexibility and opportunity to take time to do the things I love outside of work,' she said.
She says that her job does not involve saving the world, but it gives her the time to volunteer to help people.
'I work at a yoga studio that has become a second home to me. I surround myself with people who encourage me to grow and learn every single day. I write. I found a home in Charlotte that makes my life feel whole and wonderful,' she states.
She says that her dreams are not as the same as they were when she graduated.
'Where would I be? What would my life look like? Would I have gone back to school? I don’t know, what I do know is leaving that job was the best decision I’ve ever made. Recognizing that the path you start on, that the dream you start with, isn’t what it turned out to be—that’s not easy,' she states.
She states that you will find a new life, if you start over after a failure and admit defeat, to re-evaluate your life choices.
