Jobs are harder to find,
Degrees are rapidly decreasing in value,
Graduates struggle to make ends meet.
So, is there any purpose in pursuing an education?
Well, I believe that it truly depends.
In my case, I pursue an education because I am fascinated in the subject. I am curious about learning the inner workings of Biology and reaching a level whereby I am able to truly understand the complexities of Life.
I did not enrol into a university so that I can get a job in the future but because of the deep interest I have in the subject and I think that that should be the reason why we pursue an education.
At the end of the day, I believe that our intention matters because ultimately, you have to weigh the pros and the cons of getting an education. Is it worth it to spend thousands of dollars on an education that does not promise you a stable career after or would you rather spend that money to build something for yourself?
Sometimes, we make a decision to enter university because it seemed to be the right path to take but have we ever pondered if it is truly beneficial for us in the first place?
Stop letting that herd mentality affect you but find and truly understand the reason you’re chasing an education.
Degrees aren’t everything.
