I THINK I NEED TO TAKE A GAP YEAR

I’m in matric and because this year has been so unusual I couldn’t make up my mind about the career I want to pursue.

I’d always wanted to become a doctor but with the pandemic I realised how vulnerable doctors are and I’m not sure I have the grit to do what needs to be done if I become one. I don’t want to simply choose something and just go with it because I’m under pressure to make a decision. I want to have passion for the work I’ll be doing for most of my life. I asked my parents if I could take a gap year to give me some time to think about it before I make up my mind. But they seem to think that if I take the year off I won’t go and study at all. What do you think?
