Most people want to get into fields that will make the most money. I have chosen the field of Psychology because I want to help people. The career path I have chosen to go on is towards counseling but specifically addiction counseling. Everyday a family member loses their loved one from overdoses. People don’t realize that what they do to themselves it not only affects them, but it affects the family as well. I am very passionate about helping people. I also work my county’s coroner’s office. I see this every day. Someone wants to have a “good time”. They overdo it and then that’s it, they’re gone. It is heart breaking to see a family that has lost someone that they love. That’s why I want to help them before they do end up in that body bag or the county morgue. Life is to be cherished and too many people take it for granted. This is why I would like to help people with psychology. And have an emphasis on addiction counseling.
