During the early years of my life I’ve always wondered what I wanted to become in the future, at some point I wanted to become a hospital nurse, a scientist, a zoologist, a doctor and then an astronomer. My dreams didn’t really coincide with each other and obviously they were out of my league, yes, but at some point during my 8th Grade year I encountered an event that soon gave birth to my passion for psychology.
So it started as some petty joke when our MAPEH teacher then gave as an activity wherein we were to do a roleplay concerning the rehabilitation of a drug addict, and for some reason my groupmates thought of an idea that included a psychiatrist asking various questions to her subject addressing the drug addiction as the topic, then I jokingly told my groupmates that I wanted to be the psychiatrist because her role involved less work since the psychiatrist’s role was to only sit down and ask given questions which for me was pretty chill and easy. Later that year a saw this TV series that showcased the cool side of neuropsychology, that time I was so hooked to the thought that simple words can change a person’s way of thinking and acting, at that point I was so sure I wanted to become a neuropsychologist. After those encounter I then researched a whole bunch of psychology related stuff and learned that psychology had many branches and all were so fascinating for me. After a year, (I was currently in my 9th grade at that time) I encountered an event of my life that caused me so much stress and depression. I was at my lowest then, as if every emotion I felt only led to sadness that even my classmates and other relatives got worried because I lost too much weight and basically showed signs of depression. My family really didn’t address it as it was and said I was only over reacting or took the matter too seriously when in fact it was too life changing not only for me but to everyone who got involved in the mess. It took me a couple of months to a year to cope up with what I felt, throughout those time I realized how underrated this cases has become and thoughts suddenly came to me on just about how many teenagers has suffered the same way I did and how many of them who’s feelings were address wrongly which resorted to an even complicated psychological distress, and I didn’t want that. I didn’t want others to feel what I felt because it was too much pain and burden for an individual to suffer alone, I want to at least be there for them and support them in any way I could.
I wanted to slowly change people’s perspective when it came to depression and other psychological disorders, I wanted to spread awareness and to do that I wanted to become one of them. I want to become a psychiatrist. Since then I became really passionate about everything and anything that involved psychological disorders, illnesses and psychology in general. I became passionate, very passionate in helping other people with different mental distress, giving advices and mental support however way I could with joy. As a student I don’t want to be ignorant to the problem and want to help as much as I could, starting from baby steps and hopefully in a bigger picture with God’s Consent.
