In every situation, people have a choice to make. Sometimes, one may choose what they want to do and other times they choose what they feel they should do. In most circumstances, it is better for the individual to put away their wants, and do what they feel should be done.
Going to college may not be what some want to do, but it is definitely what they should do. It is a serious choice to make. The decision they make is vital and will affect the individual's life forever. The most important thing to remember in this situation is that, what one wants now, may not be what they want later in life. By going to college they can make their decision later. The person would have an education to fall back on and have more of an ability to get a good job. If one chooses not to continue their education because of what they want, they may be faced with difficulties down the road.
A choice many teenagers are faced with is whether to listen to their parents. Teenagers are filled with things they want. The problem is that those wants and desires change daily. A smart individual will set priorities for themselves and do what they feel they should. Many parents try to guide their children in the right direction. Although most know that they should listen to their parent’s advice, they don't want to. In the long-run it would benefit them to set their desires aside and do what they feel they should.
It is a tough decision to make; what you want to do and what you should do. The decision is left up to the individual but in most circumstances it is better to do what should be done.
