How many of us have taken up professions our parents wanted?

Say for example, no matter how much you want to be an engineer, if your father is against it, can you still study engineering?

Well, if you persist in wanting to be one, even if your father turns you out of the house, you can still find ways. According to J.K, “Life is strange. The moment you are very clear about what you want to do, things happen. Life comes to your aid – a friend, a relation, a teacher, somebody will help you. But if you are afraid to try because your father may turn you out, then you are lost. Life never comes to the aid of those who merely yield to some demand out of fear. ”

If you are saying, “This is what I really want to do and I am going to pursue it,” then you will find that miracles take place. You may have to go hungry, struggle to get through, but you will be a worthwhile human being, not a mere copy and that is the miracle of it.
