The Path of Educating
My apologies for the late post. There were many things that were going through my mind. One of the main things going through my mind today was how do I make this goal of helping people into the ideal that I am hoping for it to be? So a few days ago I had ordered a book on counseling careers. Today it finally arrived. And after reading it I was a bit dismayed.
The book wasn’t bad. It was relatively informative of the various careers in the field. The thing that made me feel a slight feeling of despair was the part about education.
Yes, education is important. In fact, I think it is an essential toward a better life. However, I also believe that true knowledge should be freely given and not hoarded. This is not to say that an individual should not be compensated for their work. However, when one’s economy is not doing well it becomes more imperative that the country works to truly educate its people instead of binding them with debts that can be difficult to pay off. At the same time though I feel that having looked into the amount of education it takes to be a counselor has made me see a clearer path on how specifically I do want to help others, and that path is through helping people become better educated individuals.
Right now I am in my late 20’s, I work two jobs, and I have a fair amount of debt with a limited amount of college education. The fact that I am in my late 20’s leaves me a bit anxious about the success of my goal of helping people. I know I need to become better educated and that I should work to get a college degree, but the lack of resources does leave me rather lost. I don’t know quite how to proceed from this point, but I now have a more focused idea to work with which I am grateful for. If any of you have any good suggestions you would like to offer please feel free to comment about it. Thank you everyone for your support. Until next time take care.
