What was your dream job as a child?
Few months back, my brother and his family came to visit us. I was asking my teenage niece what her ambition was and what she wanted to do when she grew up. At that point my memories went back nearly thirty years. I was pestering my Dad that I wanted to become a Lawyer. My Dad was really adamant in saying no. He said that it was the most dangerous profession since most of the lawyers have some political party affiliation and it would not suit me. He chose for me what I wanted to do. I told my niece , I lost the first case. I had to prove why I wanted to be lawyer to my Dad and he won over me. Hence I did not get into that profession.
My Grandfather’s Dad was a lawyer and his brother was a district judge. My Grandfather had so many stories about that and I always thought I had lawyer gene in me. I loved watching movies with court scenes and would dream wearing the black coat and arguing court.
Autism did change so many things in my life and my life is not what I had dreamed about. Anyway I argue with my husband everyday without wearing a black coat. Some days I win and some days I lose, maybe all my dream is not lost!!!
