Whose dreams are you following? (By: Luciana Calle)

It all starts out with a simple doodle…

…to make you realize that’s all you ever wanted to do!

But it takes someone to draw you away from the ambition to follow regarding your true happiness,

making you think that you are too young to know what you want.

They say they know what’s best.

They say you’ll thank them in the long run.

Yet there’s something within that just doesn’t feel right…

…a feeling that wants to draw you back…

…but reality wins the fight against that feeling, and you have no choice but to settle.

 You see the person you are makes others happy.

But are you happy…

  1. I like your topic because it is thought-provoking. Sometimes we often hover between what we want to do and what we should do. In reality, we cannot just think of ourselves. We may want to meet the expectation of our parents; we may desire a better life which needs more money to maintain; we may become lazy and give up what we like gradually. It’s really a hard decision to make and it is also influenced by culture. I think in America, people are more adventurous and passionate. However, in my country, many students head down the road that their parents have already paved for them.

  2. I really enjoyed your photo essay, I can definitely relate to it with the way my parents forced me to go to Rutgers. As long as you believe that your parents are always trying to look out for your best interest then you’ll thank them. If not, then you can raise your kids differently if you ever have any. This can turn into a vicious cycle.

  3. This is brilliant! I love how the female in this set was the same and I think the progression of age is an awesome thing to play with. The topic itself about happiness is definitely a topic we can all relate to. Wow. Really, really good work.
