My Options

I am feeling very depressed lately. I have this "goal" in life to make something out of my life because I know that I can be better than what I am now. I "wasted" many years living for others though I do not have regrets about wasting my youth, I am putting a lot of pressure on myself to make up for lost time. I have so many things to do, so many things to see.

But I've been looking at my options and I don't have much of a choice. Do I go back to school? Do I look for employment? Or do I set up a small business? My best bet is to set up a small business BUT I am really not keen to fork out any capital as I am saving money to buy a house.

I really don't know what to do. I have been looking at jobs and I don't even qualify for any decent job. I feel so sad. I feel like I don't have the support from friends and family to get something done with life. Sure, they entertain me when I bring up the subject but they don't take me seriously. Well, at least I don't feel it if they do.

I'm so unhappy.

The solution is simple. GET MARRIED! :)

Aih... only if it's that easy! But I prefer to achieve things on my own and not take the escape route of marriage.

I'm also facing the similar challenge of yours. My advise is you have to see the big picture and long term. Set your priority on the goals you want to achieve. From there, list down the options eg return to school etc. Weight the pros and cons. The gain and opportunity cost if you forgo that particular option. Then set and execute your plan. It's not a 1 or 2 months thingy but rather few years 'commitment'.
