If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be counselling and it would introduce change to the world by altering the way troubled minds see the world we live in.
In today’s society many people struggle just living their life from day to day. We have numerous stresses that plague our lives and various trials that we must face. I know that I have personally struggled with getting through the day on multiple occasions. The job I hope to obtain one day is the wonderful job of being an addictions counselor.
The early to the late teenage years of my life were wrought with my own addictions. I know the horrible feeling of being trapped and vulnerable to the dark thoughts brought on by addiction. If I can obtain my goal, I hope to help relieve many people from that painful place and maybe even revolutionize the way treatment for addictions is practiced.
At this point in time I am educating myself in the field of psychology and behavioral analysis to better understand the human mind and what causes addiction. I believe that if I can gain a grasp on what causes addictions and how to treat or remove the cause, then I can help change our society, perhaps even the world.
In short, my dream job would be counselling and I would work to change the world through revolutionizing addiction treatment and changing the way we see the world.
