    I was frustrated thinking i am the only person who wants to do lots of stuff but, this blog gave me confidence that there are people like me out their.My friends always tell me “you do a lots of stuffs,how?”…I always end up with silence and like “l don’t know”.
    Please if someone get this message suggest me what to do.I should focus on one thing or just be as what i am.

      I am the same! And I don’t like talking with my friends about this stuff because I won’t want them to think I am showing off. Since I was 10 I played guitar, piano, drums, flute, I liked painting and writing but I was also good at Maths and with a really good memory so as a result I ended being good at biology, physics, chemistry, anatomy, programming and almost every other subject except for sports (but I am good at tennis too)… but my parents are the owners of a very important accounting firm and wanted a “secure” future for me so they obligated me to study accounting and yeah I am good at it too but I don’t feel fulfilled, I suffered from depression because I wanted to do so much more, sometimes I wished to be “normal” and focus on just one carreer but normal is overated so my suggestion is “be who you are” otherwise you may end up without feeling fulfilled.

    This describes me 100%, but why isn’t anyone talking about the CATCH or the FINE print? I’m talking about DEPRESSION. Yes, depression, the Dark Elephant in the room.

      Yes, absolutely. I am grateful for your comment Kelsey-Bernard, that’s exactly where I am at… I keep finding myself at crossroads not knowing what to choose and not being able to find any help. I feel more and more frustrated with the “find your passion, find what you are good at” advice and more and more isolated with the “but you could do so many things!” arguments. Reading this article I kept nodding along because it all was so recognizable, and then, reaching the end I found the even more familiar vacuum asking once more “yes, and now what?”
