The worst Day of my Life!
The worst day of my life would be the day when I had to talk to my father regarding my career plans. I’m not so close to him.
Because of that, I had to think tons of times that whether or not it would be right to talk about my career plans with him.
My father was an engineer by profession. He thought professions like doctor or engineer could only be the prospective opportunities. I had to oppose him. So, here is what happened –
I’m typically a free will child. I don’t fear to talk straight if required. So, when I had to choose my subject specialization in school, I was more than eager to pursue the career of a business manager. So, commerce was the obvious choice. At last, the evening came when I had to inform my father that I was thinking of choosing business & commerce in the long run. He was vicious to hear that. I knew he wouldn’t be comfortable to know my decision, but never expected him to react that way. He said I was never going to make a career out of that and I wouldn’t be able to do anything in the future. He was loud and shouting at my mother.
Career choice was mine. I didn’t want my mother to suffer because of that. I went close to my father and told him nothing could really change my decision. I wanted him to understand my passion for the subject, but he was strictly against that and refused to talk anymore about it. According to my father, business & commerce is not for girls. That would be the worst day of my life as I was all alone and my father refused to offer any kind of cooperation regarding my career pursuit in the future. I was disheartened to think girls from our society still didn’t have the freedom of choice. However, I was lucky to have my mother by my side throughout.
