would appreciate it if everyone in my life (irl) would quit pressuring me to get ordained and be a pastor. idek if that’s what I want, or even good for me to do.
people keep tryna plan my life for me because I just got an MDiv. back off buddies, I’m gonna do what I want. no one needs a faith leader in as bad spiritual shape as I’m in right now. I wish people would understand that I need some time to get on my feet and figure some things out
like can we abolish the idea that if your degree doesn’t apply to what you’re currently doing, then it’s a waste? just get rid of that idea. I studied, learned, and grew so much. The debt sucks but I love having the education I have. even if ordination isn’t the right path for me, I will still be an educated layperson and that is valuable.
