Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
- Robert Frost
Right versus Wrong
Dharma versus Adharma
Left versus Right
Life versus Existence
Passion versus Profession
Our choices in life is what makes or breaks us and the eternal question of which road to take especially in the Indian context where most of our choices are directly proportional to the materialistic wealth gained and our ‘status.’
How does one make a choice battling the emotions? How does one make a choice where everyone is happy?
It is impossible but nevertheless, attainable.
Pinpoint the path you want to choose. Ensure you have enough knowledge of it and you are certain of it. Walk on it, no matter what. Gather courage to answer questions to your immediate family about your choice. The road will be rough and if you are the first, there will be several roadblocks. Nevertheless walk on it, establish your hold and when you look back, there will be a wealth of experience, knowledge and more importantly, the difference that you made to your life and will make in others by sharing all that you’ve gained.
