Hi everyone. 22 year old student that was previously studying a teaching degree for secondary school. Went on professional experience and found out I didn’t like it. Dropped the course.
After a year I started going to the gym to get my life together and loved it. Decided to start studying a bachelor of sports science which I was planning to go into master of physiotherapy. Currently half a semester into the course.
I got injured a year ago and started seeing a Physio hoping things would get better ( it didn’t ). Have chronic upper and lower back pain even after going Physio every week for a year. Makes going to the gym very hard and always have back pain when standing. My health is not improving. My love for the gym decreased because my body is not in fighting shape any more.
I’m considering quitting my course because I’m not sure if I will get better and i think you need a lot of physical stability to be a Physio. It doesn’t seem like continuing would be a good idea because the course is pretty expensive. Am I just making excuses? I know my 20s are meant to be about taking appropriate risks but I’m afraid of fucking up my life.
I’m afraid that I will waste my time and I’m honestly sick of studying and being in uni. Don’t know what else to do. I don’t have many interests but i know that I like interacting with customers at my retail job.
I used to work a physical labor job but that ruined my back as well so trades are out of the question. I don’t know if I should take a risk by continuing the course. Exercise physiology doesn’t have a lot of job prospects. Im not sure if there is a better way where I can find a job I like.
I’m so sick and tired of fighting day to day when I don’t have a goal. I feel like I am relying too much on my feelings and can’t decide on a goal. Am I wrong for this?
I just want to live a life of excitement and fun but I feel like fear of failure is holding me back. I know asking for strangers for advice is wrong but at this point, I don’t trust that my mindset is telling me what is right.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks for reading.
