    CAREER CHOICES - Follow your passion or follow your ability?
    (the topic was once discussed on SEPTEMBER 22, 2016)

    Making a career choice is more than just landing a job. It is a decision that has a huge impact on our lifestyle and the way we achieve our lifetime goals. But how can we decide on a career path when our academic performance suggests an option but we desire otherwise?
    Imagine you make it through four years of college and get your degree; you graduate and get a job in a related field. But years later, you realize it was actually a mistake. What you are doing is not what you actually want to do. You feel bad having to get up each day and go to a job you do not like.
    That scenario is not rare. For many people, it may take years or more to find out what they are good at, and sometimes, their skills and abilities may not equal their interests and passions. That is one reason why many college students change their major halfway through college, and many never do the jobs related to their majors after graduation.
    The fact is that you cannot be successful at something you are not interested in, but if you have no special skill in something you are passionate about, you can be discouraged; your passion can be drained, and it can be another dilemma.

    Sologamy is marriage by a person to themselves. It is a commitment that values self-love and self-compassion. Supporters of the practice argue that it leads to a happier life.
    A number of people have put self-marriage in practice, particularly women. Some self-marrying programmes have given guidance and support prior to marriage. Ceremonies take almost exactly the form as a regular marriage. They can include guests, cakes, and the reception. Also, the person can have a private moment in a room where they can express self-love with a mirror and candles.
    By self-marrying, you are going to take vows.
    1. You’re going to marry yourself for richer or for poor
    2. You’re going to marry yourself for better, for worse
    3. You marry yourself in sickness and in health
    4. You love yourself the way you want someone else to love you.
    The business of marrying yourself transforms every area of your life, from family relationships, kids to friends and social relationships. You become able to love in this whole new way. Instead of loving people based on certain conditions, you love them right where they are, and for who they are, as the way you love yourself.
    When you decided to marry yourself, you would realise that you already had everything you needed.
     
    Questions to ponder:
    1. Why are more and more men and women afraid of getting married?
    2. Are you a supporter or protester of sologamy? What are the main criticisms of sologamy?
    3. If you want to get self-married, will you celebrate by self-wedding?
    4. People say: “the person you need to marry first is yourself”. How do you think about it?
    5. How do you understand the four vows above?
    6. What are the alternatives to marriage?
    Thank Trần Thị Ngọc Sơn for your idea
