Looks like you've gone around and around about this, it's been a hard decision for you to make and yet you are still unsure. Forgive me if I'm seeing this wrong but it looks like you've left your fate up to someone else in the past, letting them make some pretty important decisions for you, even when it made you sad. It's time to break out of this way of thinking. You must decide what is your passion, what do you want to do, it's your life and you have to live it. Live it the way you want. I'm seeing something about oral health, is this important to you or something someone else wants you to do? If it is your dream to be a dentist, do that or if you don't have the money for that much schooling, be a dental hygienist. It's an important decision but not one that should be hard. Do what you love.
Hi, thankyou for the response. You're quite right about it being a hard decision, im even reconsidering now, hard to know what i really want to focus on doing as i like a few things. You're also right about letting people making decisions for me, and yes sometimes i feel i sacrifice my happiness for others, maybe when i shouldnt have to. You've also quoted the motto i try to tell myself near enough everyday! Ive not thought about being a dentist, but i have been wanting to have dental work myself for sometime. Funny you mention dental career as there is an advertisement in the paper this week for a dental nurse where you also attend college, its a quite small town so opportunities don't often arise. Do you think i should apply?
