What do you do if there's literally no way for you to pursue your passion?
No future I think of really appeals to me except one that is permanently beyond my grasp only due to the circumstances of my birth.
I'm having an awfully hard time forcing myself to like anything else.
>whats your passion?
US Marine Corps
>whats stopping you from pursuing it?
The only exceptions in their history have been with decorated individuals diagnosed while already active. Even then most get honorably discharged.
>my passion is to be a US marine
why tho? jesus dude, bottom of the barrel much?
if its about honor and such there are many other options through which you can pursue passion
It's what I've always wanted. I didn't pick it, that's just what I want.
>if its about honor
That's not the point at all. I don't care about 'honor', that's just an admittedly unnecessary detail about the nature of the discharge.
Yeah I've heard Marines get called a lot of things but bottom of the barrel isn't one of them
Just please don't say it in public, former Marines are everywhere and won't hesitate to beat the shit out of you
>bottom of the barrel isnt one of them
then you've probably never had any extended contact with military. dad was navy. im air force. bros a marine. ill say what i want. marines is what happens when you fail at every chance of joining a good branch. some marines may not want to admit that, but the fact that they'd throw punches over a random strangers comment is proves the point.
go fuck urself.
Know the saying that if life gives you lemons, make lemonade?
I wanted to become an NBA basketball player but it didn't work well so I pursued another passion instead.
It's fine by me and I won't get raped by Curry.
I know it's not really good advice but you just have to let go. The sooner you stop thinking about what could have been the better. Wistfulness makes it hard to develop a new passion.
>chair force thinking they're better than anyone but army
>How does this even work?
Try new things man. In regards to me I tried photography because a photographer friend encourage me to try it. I was always interested in taking photos and it kind of clicked.
Now I enjoy taking photos more than playing basketball.
hey OP if you're still around gotta tell you that a couple years ago I got rejected by the US Navy for medical reasons and it was absolutely crushing. You know how when you take a beer can and crush it flat under your foot, that was what I felt like being robbed of that dream. So I definitely know what you're feeling.
It took a while but I got over it, I work as an EMT now and I feel like I'm doing something meaningful that helps people, that was why I wanted to join the military in the first place. I just focus on doing my job well and I know that if there's ever a real national emergency and the military needs me I'll be ready. But if that never happens I know I'm doing something that matters.
Well, you do what you can.
You're feeling what every black kid in the ghetto feels when he realizes he's not going to be a rapper or professional athlete.
So, you can steal cars, smoke crack, or find something new to do. Choose carefully.
Also, welcome to real life. Suck it up. You're neither lucky nor special, just like everyone else. Quit playing princess and get a fucking job. God forbid you get some life experience and find something realistic that you like even more, you plum.
Not OP but what do you do in the Army? Much like OP, I've always planned on joining the Army but as an officer rather than enlisting, since I have my Bachelor's. Why do you hate it? I have been having doubts as of late..
