I journaled today about studying law this year. Some background: here in the UK if you have a degree you can 'convert' to law in one year, then spend another year training (to be a solicitor or barrister) to then secure a job. The problem is that the job demand exceeds the supply, and it is easy to be left stranded after paying a lot to get the aforementioned law qualifications. My main concern is that I won't enjoy law. I did some work experience in a law firm, and I wasn't too sure. I am only really doing it because I don't know what else to do, and because it is a stable career, with good financial prospects. If I do the first qualification, then it might be useful, but if I don't go any further, I may feel like I could have spent that year doing something better. I recognise the goodism/people-pleasing pressure on myself to be a good, successful son, brother, cousin, grandchild or whatever, and to not upset my parents, even though I know they would want what I want, what makes me happy. And perfectionism makes me want to be successful at everything. I think it is also true that some things in life you don't know and that my perfectionism may also be giving me the false impression that I have to know exactly what I am going to enjoy. Some things you don't know until you have tried. I feel a lot of fear/anxiety about the uncertainty, as well as committing to anything really. But then there may be fear about doing what I really want to do too. How are your professional relationships right now? Has the program had any effect on your career? I can't say, I am still a student. Well, on holidays now at least.
