I made the HUGE mistake of following the desires my Father wanted for me. Long story short 25 years later I am still paying for doing what he wanted with my life instead of doing what I wanted. I really wanted to be a commercial pilot.
My father was fairly wealthy I worked for him for years for very little pay (he did buy me land and a house etc).
When he died this past summer my 3 other siblings walked away with from his estate eating lobster I walked away with the little dipping bowl of butter.
Moral of my story is it is your life do as you wish and what your heart is telling you to do.
If you dont you will pay for it for the rest of your life and will always wonder why did I do what someone else wanted me to do?
As I told my brother I used to think you were the fool for walking away from the family business yet I now realize you were the smart one and I was the fool.
