When I was 17, I thought of becoming a psychologist.
So, I interviewed two psychologists. They love a kid that’s interested so it was easy to set up.
I’d heard about suicide rates among psychologists and that many become psychologists because they’re searching for their own answers in life and hope that trying to understand others will help them understand themselves.
Well, that turned out to be true, at least those two New Jersey psychologists I interviewed.
And, so I realized that since what _I_ was wanting to do is trying to understand myself by learning to understand others, I realized that it wasn’t my path and so I didn’t take it.
