Thanks a lot for the topic card. Decisions are very important in our life. I’ve made numerous decisions in my life and sometimes I had to take some of those of my own and sometimes I had a chat with my family members about it. Anyway, today I’m going to talk about a decision that I took alone which proved to be the right decision I had ever made.
It was just after my class 12 final result that my father told me that I have to choose a major for my graduation. I was then a boy of 18. Usually, after the 12th grade, most parents help their children to decide on their next goal. But, interestingly, I was not forced by my parents here to do anything; instead, he encouraged me to decide on what subject I thought was most suitable for me. Many of my friends and relatives had the notion that I was not smart enough; rather I was very immature to take such a gigantic decision for myself. Some of them even went on criticizing my parents.
However, my father, especially, remained calm and told me to decide. Luckily, I knew my strength in English grammar and English Literature fascinated me most. So, after considering all other options I decided to complete my Honors in English.
Then came the hard part. My mother thought that I would decide on something like medicine or pharmacy, as I also had a fascination for medical science. She was not convinced. It took me some time to convince her at last.
Now I’m happy that my decision was quite good. I completed my Honors successfully which led me to complete Masters in English too. Now, I’ve become an English Teacher at a very renowned Secondary School in my hometown.
I don‘t deny the fact that had my decision has been wrong, I would have been blamed by many. Yet, I was very excited and happy that my parents gave their consent and I felt like a bird that was able to fly alone for the first time. I faced many problems to fulfill my aim and many unusual and disheartening thoughts came to my mind like abandoning my aim to complete my graduation. But, in the end, nothing bad happened and I was victorious. So, I think it was a very good decision to take.
That’s the end of this model answer.
