I know a girl who has always wanted to be a banker/accountant. She works where she never imagined when she was little and dream dreams, she hates this place but she has no choice but keep the job. She contemplated many times to quit, but she knew the result would be penury.
In her society, or I could say her family, once you have acquired the first degree, you are left to fend for yourself.
She needed to do her masters but there are no resources to back this up. The life she lives is completely different from what she has dreamed of.
Being an accountant is what seems impossible to achieve, it’s possible, but a lot has to be done. She is simply helpless at this stage of her life.
This is a strong girl who can achieve whatever is achievable, the society has thrown unpleasantries at her, she has kept on well so far, the question is, when is she going to start living her dreams.
Depression is what she battles with daily.
I keep telling her not to let her guards down, but be on the alert for her opportunities. Some would have probably gone beyond the level she is, but she is patient and knows that her time will come. I admire this about her. She is very optimistic.
The dream to have a job she loves, to have a family she so much craves for are all in her thoughts day by day. Most times she create an imaginary world of her own where she breaks away from this world, she lives a life of a fairytale in her world, where she controls all the characters in her world. This world is filled with laughter.
I do like her because she never quits until she has what she wants.
Way to go girl, don’t get tired.
