Should I act or just leave things as it is ??
I have a friend whom I know from my childhood, he’s on the verge of starting his career and has always been interested in physics and wanted to pursue astrophysics as a career for the longest time.
His parents on the other hand wants him to do medicine, as much as I know him he hates biology like can’t stand it. JUST NOT INTERESTED AT ALL. Regardless he took the entry exam as he was pressured and has done quite well. The problem is his smile is gone, he isn’t happy like he was before. Sure he smiles but it’s not the same.
Should I intervene or just watch ?
Idk what to say tho. His parents were so happy about it but I could tell that he wasn’t and was just faking it. I’ve been worried about him all day.
Should I say something to him ?
Encourage him to say something to his parents ?
I get you and him because the same happened with me.
My dad and his dad are quite alike they have everything planned. Not just that they are really stubborn !
Is there any possible way you can make things right for him and make his parents understand, if yes then please buddy do it
I really want to
But I’m not sure how like what should I say or is it even my place to say something ?
I’m really scared that if he gets the offer from medicine that he would be pressured to accept it
Talk to him, let him no that you support him no matter what. But also let him know that he needs to choose what’s best for him and what makes him happy. That he’ll only be able to do justice to his field of he chooses something he’s interested in and loves. Make sure he knows that you will support him either way and want what’s best for him.
I’ll let him know that I’m there regardless
Please support your friend.
Watch “You are my glory” it’s a Chinese series. Can watch with English subtitles.
This series will help you and him understand this concept better. Hopefully you will know how to support your friend
