Humans are not a solitary species usually. They enjoy companionship in their lives whether it comes from family, friends, or a romantic partner. And they also tend to seek advice from the people in their lives when they try to make a serious decision. But, although everyone can ask for advice, there are some important decisions that no matter how much advice anyone takes, in the end, they should make the decision on their own.
In childhood people tend to go through many possible future careers, many times affected by the careers their parents have, their personal hobbies, the possible careers their friends are thinking about. Then it comes this moment when you really should decide and the truth is that it is not an easy decision to make. Although there is a possibility of a career change down the road it is also possible that the career choice someone makes will be what they will do for the rest of their lives. Discussing with friends and family is a good way to establish what they think about it, and get some advice on the career path you think of choosing but in the end, this is a decision you need to make on your own.
