I’m 23 and at that “crossroads” point in life. I’m thinking about doing dermatology, but it’s such a commitment (11 years of study!!). I’ve been a dental assistant, so I know that too much blood and guts isn’t my thing, but I want to really help people in my day-to-day job, but make a decent wage.
My father is a disability support worker, which is a wonderfully meaningful job, but the pay is pitiful and he thinks I should do medicine, be a GP for 10 years and make some money, then quit and do something else.
Has anyone else found a good way to get insight into yourself? I’ve read a lot of replies to other questions saying “find what you love to do”, but I have no particular passions and never have.
